Name your price for my online comics workshops

http://www.leanintoart.com/workshops

+Rob Stenzinger and I have updated the +Lean Into Art workshops page and re-released hours and hours of instruction for visual storytellers for whatever price you think is fair (even free)!

My 4-hour Comics Fundamentals series (which I've taught for 7 years both online and offline) is bundled with bonus videos, including an hour-long video on coloring in Adobe Photoshop Elements and lettering in Adobe Illustrator.

Rob has some great workshops on developing a game from your comic and how comics storytelling principles can be applied to make your site's UX awesome.

You can download or stream the videos, and they come DRM-free.

It might make a great gift for a creative person in your life, and you don't need to worry about giftwrap or shipping!

Comics make children happiest during the holidays.

http://yaytime.com/blog/order-books-for-the-holidays/

+Dave Roman is offering to personalize copies of his wonderful Astronaut Academy series purchased between now and December 17. Only $12, shipping included.

I recommend this sci-fi graphic novel of friendship and adventure to anyone with children in grades 5-8. Get it for them, but sneak it away to read it for yourself, too.

Can you spot all of the 80s toy references?

http://www.toyfinity.com/comics/?c=3&p=6

Today's Robo Force page is full of easter eggs to entertain folks who were kids when the original toys were on the shelves. There are some fakes planted in there, though!

How many can you find? Let me know in the comments!

Remember the Traveling Wilburys? Same idea, but COMICS.

+Ryan Estrada's Broken Telephone Kickstarter is one of the most interesting and inventive ideas for  a graphic novel I've ever seen, and there's not much time left to get in on it.

A band of cartoonists getting together to make an album. So great.

Tempt Your Heroes With a Reason to Quit.

Special audio-only episode of +Comics Are Great! with guest Ben Hatke (Zita the Spacegirl)just dropped!


Comics Are Great!
originally shared:

The Eternal Battle of Writing Heroic Characters

http://comicsaregreat.com/cag92

In this special audio-only episode of Comics Are Great! I'm joined by cartoonist Ben Hatke (http://benhatke.com) for a discussion on writing the Really, Really Good Guys (and Gals). Together we discuss the appeal of a character who has an inner sense of what is right, the perils of writing ultra-powerful characters, and what the role of restraint (both from within and without) plays in making a character’s choices compelling.
