Al Gordon’s Comic Book Workshop

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Image Comics,

Wildstar #1Taking a look around the Craigslist lately, I discovered not a job, but an opportunity. My old pal Al Gordon - a most excellent inker of comics and a fine comic book penciler in his own right, and a Harvey, Eisner and CBG award winner - is offering his comic book workshop.

Of course, it’s in San Francisco because that’s where Al is, but if you can make it there, it’s sure to be worth the trip. Al’s been doing his workshop since 2004, so there’s probably more than a few things you can learn about making comics, making art, making a living and having a career in funnybooks and its related offspring.

According to Al, “If you’re an accomplished ‘creator’ or just a frantic fan of this mind-melting medium and would love to produce your own comics, this is the workshop for you.”

Al promises to teach each class the “craft of producing a comic book, from start to finish” with the goal of creating “a comic book of any style and take it from scratch to a print-ready comic book yarn.”

It’s four classes a month, details and cool stuff at Al’s website.
