Hello! + Comics Workshop

Hello! My name is Chase Chauffe, and I’m the new Teen programming person at the Paradis Library. I’ve got plans and ideas for programs that will hopefully BLOW YOUR MIND, and keep you coming back for more. A little bit about myself:

~ I’m from Bayou Gauche, and went to Hahnville (Class of 2005), but I am originally from southeastern Colorado. My family moved a lot when I was young, so I’ve lived in a couple different places, but my family settled down in St. Charles Parish when I was going into 6th grade.

~ I am a huge NERD when it comes to music, movies, comics and videogames. I love talking about this stuff so please, talk to me about the media you enjoy or geek-out over.

~ I am such a nerd, that I went to college to get a degree in Sequential Art, which is a fancy way to say “comics.” Speaking of which…

The first big program I have planned is a Comics Workshop. It’ll start tomorrow, August 31st, and continue for every Wednesday in September. I’ll teach you guys how to draw anything you want: characters, backgrounds, props, panels, sound effects, etc. Everyone will learn how to draw their own comic book: ideally, you can show up each Wednesday to work on your book, then at the end of the month, no matter how much progress you’ve made, I’ll teach you how to assemble your pages into a book using the photocopier.

I thought I would share some comic pages I did a long time ago with you guys, just to show you how I draw and to hopefully get you excited about making your own comics!

.

Hope you guys like my comics, and I hope you’re excited about drawing your own! I hope to see you at Paradis on Wednesdays, starting at 3 PM!

-Chase
