The comics we first encounter in the world are often funny: gag panels, newspaper strips, children's comic books. Humor is so fundamental to the origin of the medium and is incorporated in its name. In this workshop led by Green Bay, Wisconsin-based artist Jessica Campbell, participants will engage in a fast-paced exercise to develop ideas for funny gag cartoons, which you will see through to completion. From generating an idea to drawing to producing a finished work, this workshop will give you a crash course in cartooning.
