Tooniversity at The Quarry

Due to popular demand, I ended up doing two cartooning workshops back to back at The Quarry Arts Centre in Whangarei on Monday this week. Thanks to everyone attended. There are clearly some great budding cartoonists out there. We covered a lot of topics in 2.5 hours which included using basic shapes to construct different characters, creating dynamic poses and even down to some of the finer points of proportion and anatomy.

I got some great feedback afterwards, including this awesome video from one highly talented young lady.

Thanks also to all the friendly helpful staff and artists in residence at The Quarry.

I hope to do some more workshops here in the near future anyone interested in attending future workshops, or in hosting one please contact me via my contact form or add your name to my newsletter mailing list on the home page.

I kicked off this week at Mahurangi College as part of year ten’s activity week and will be doing more at the Quarry arts centre in Whangarei beginning the week of 21/1/13 if you’re interested in signing up please do so asap as places tend to go quickly.

The workshops are suitable for anyone age nine or over and will cover such topics as anatomy, perspective, inventing your own characters and creating dynamic poses.
