On Wednesday, October 24th, the San Lorenzo library hosted a “How to Draw Your Own Comics” class given by Oliver Chin. It was wonderful to see people of all ages in attendance. Mr. Chin began the class by sharing his background and experience as an author and publisher. He continued with a slide show and discussion on comics, manga, and graphic novels. Each person was then given a template and Mr. Chin walked them through a character and plot outline and some quick sketches. Based on these, the artists created larger and more detailed drawings. At the end of the class, each person had the beginnings of their own comic. The artists shared their work aloud and Mr. Chin distributed prizes for various categories in addition to a free comic book for all.
