Getting Started Guide for New Users

When: May 28th @ 1pm (1.5hr Demo)

Join Vancouver Cartoonist Zoe Si as she shares her adventures and techniques in Cartooning! From art-loving kid, to lawyer, to professional illustrator and New Yorker cartoonist, Zoe will discuss how cartooning is an integral part of her day, and her favourite materials to use at home and on-the-go. She will demonstrate her cartooning and painting techniques, including characters and illustrating a full scene, and explain her personal joke-writing tips. Attendees will gain a better understanding of basic cartooning techniques, using cartoons as a storytelling medium, and the role that autobiographical cartooning can play in learning about yourself and the world around you.
