The word “comics” is a new term for something people have been doing for thousands of years: telling stories with pictures. Learn how to mine your own life for material to make the kinds of comics that only you can. Come ready to draw! Then watch Lora layout comic pages, explaining the process as she goes. She’ll be working from an original script written by Wynonna Earp creator, Beau Smith, just for this panel— and it’s sure to be WayHaught! Lora Innes is the artist on IDW Publishing’s Wynonna Earp comic book series, and the creator of her own time-travel teen romance, The Dreamer. All skill levels welcome— drawing isn’t as important to making comics as you might think.
Please bring your own drawing materials and something to draw on – for example a clipboard, sketchbook and pencils
