Description

Join VT comic creator illustrator and storyboard artist, Gregory Giordano as he shows you the fundamentals of ink drawing. My philosophy is-- whether it’s traditional dip pen, brush, marker, or even a pointed stick, Ink is a primal and elegant medium able to achieve amazing imagery and form. "It’s my favorite medium!” Learn basic techniques using markers, dip pen, brush and other cool tools for making the ink flow! y

Class is $50 for 3hrs - all materials are included. Feel free to bring your own if you have something that you'd like to use or get instruction on!

*Words & Pictures is on the 2nd floor of an old building without elevator access. Must be able to climb a flight of stairs.*

PROCESS:
My work is a mix of traditional cartooning and illustration methods-- pen, brush and ink, graphite on Bristol Board, brought into photoshop, for coloring and collage. I am trying to replicate the look of pre-digital pre press methods like zip-a-tone, process color, halftones, craft tint paper, silkscreen and other abandoned methods to evoke a look that no longer exists in analog. Using these visual tropes allows me to evoke emotions and sense of place or time.
