Each workshop will include an introduction to the comic-making process and a drawing exercise. You’ll be able to view illustrations up close and maybe even touch them. Drawing techniques used in computer graphics programs will also be shown. Seating is limited and you are encouraged to register by phone or in person at West Regional Library or St. Rose Branch.

Rob Guillory, a comic book artist from Lafayette will lead the workshops. He was here last year also, as some of you may remember. Check out Rob’s blog.

“Born, raised and currently based in Lafayette, LA, Rob Guillory’s artwork has been published by major companies as Image Comics, Random House, Dark Horse Comics and Ape Entertainment. Rob’s art is easily recognizable for its dynamic, high-energy visual style and crisp story-telling, making him a standout talent among comic professionals. Currently, Rob is working on a breakthrough new ongoing comic series for Image Comics called CHEW, debuting in June, 2009.”
