826NYC Comics Workshop

Cover art by Katrina

Not long ago, I had the pleasure of participating in a comics workshop over at 826NYC.  I joined fantastic cartoonists Nathan Schreiber, Domitille Collardey, and Sarah Glidden along with comics guru Chris Eckert in helping seven youngsters (ages 10 to 12) each make a four page story.

In order to help focus the class and make a sort of cohesive anthology, each story began with the main character turning out their light to go to bed.  The entirety of the story would then take place overnight and end the next morning when they get up for school.  Over four weeks, the kids wrote, drew, inked, lettered, and colored (if there was time!) their stories.  We called the whole thing "And Then the Lights Went Out" and here are the amazing results!
