Creating Comics with Jacob Hunt 6 Sessions | All Levels | Price: $130 | Max. 10ARTZ7714 | Thursdays, October 9 – November 13, 6:30 – 8:30pm
Comics are an exciting medium for storytelling and self-expression. This class will discuss the techniques used to physically create a comic, the principles of visual communication used to successfully tell a story, and the means to reach an audience. Students are encouraged to arrive with concepts or story ideas to be developed and executed at home with ongoing critique and refinement occurring within the class.
Visual storytelling, which encompasses everything from page layout to character design to color theory, will be a central focus of the class. Other topics will include drawing fundamentals of anatomy and perspective; materials, tools, and techniques used for making comics; application of digital technology; and considerations for self-promotion and publishing.
Jacob Hunt has been reading comics since the fourth grade, starting with Calvin & Hobbes and Marvel superheroes. He has always written just as much as he has drawn, so in due course, that’s what he studied throughout college. In 2004, he received his bachelor’s in illustration and creative writing from the University of Georgia. For the next few years, he published a humorous, semi-autobiographical comic strip entitled, My Doomed Affair, in which his fictional alter-ego tormented his ex-girlfriend. Eventually, Jacob decided to enroll at SCAD-Atlanta to earn his MFA in sequential art, which is academic jargon for “comics.” Having completed graduate school in 2013, Jacob is currently developing a hilarious graphic novel about an Amish teenager who inadvertently stumbles upon a parallel reality. Alongside all of this, Jacob also managed to work in special education for several years and front a well-liked if virtually unknown rock-and-roll band called Tracer Metula.
