Join cartoonist and illustrator, Laura Lannes, for an afternoon of making whatever you want. There are as many different ways to make comics as there are people who make comics. Any way that works for you is correct. Sometimes there is a lot of mysticism added to comics, regarding techniques and formats - “you must use a 9-grid,” “you must ink over your pencils with a nib,” etc. In this workshop, Laura will show you several different ways that people have found to make their comics, and then challenge you to make something completely new! Please join her in exercises to get you to try new materials and techniques! Materials (pens, pencils, paper, etc.) will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own. All attendees will receive a free copy of the Cool Work x Interesting People zine.

Laura Lannes is an illustrator and cartoonist living in New York City. She graduated in 2015 from the School of Visual Arts, where she studied Illustration. She's originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

This event is part of Cool Work x Interesting People, a monthly series about comics co-curated by Carta Monir and Leigh Hurwitz.
