Origin of this Website
Trying to teach during a pandemic is stupidly hard. In order to combine both online and physical learning, I created this website. There are two courses available. One, on humor in comic strips, I actually taught as a Zoom class. The second, on Drawing Circles, is presented here exclusively.
Meet the Teacher
The great thing about teaching cartooning is you don’t need any credentials whatsoever! Not a single one! That being said, I had been certified to teach high school English just prior to pursuing a career in cartooning. Combining both vocations, I’ve been teaching cartooning to local kids since 2004 or something like that and despite everything I taught them, a few of my students are currently actual working professional cartoonists!

Information about Class Materials plus a bunch of downloadable templates for comics, trading cards and comic strips can all be found on the Cartooning Basics page. The current online course offering for students registered for the Monday afternoon cartooning class is called Fun with Circles.
