with Ali Fitzgerald

In this section of the module, we will delve deep into character creation. Through a variety of drawing and writing exercises, we will discover how to make compelling visual characters. Each week we will craft a graphic story (or add onto an existing one), looking at different comic characters through a critical lens. By the end of this section, we will come away with a better understanding of how to center stories around the people and creatures that spring from our imagination!

To use an example with my Hungover Bear and Friends, a comic that ran for 3 years. When I first developed the character, it was basically just a premise, I wanted to make a sort of anti-meme. I also wanted the character to have depth, but the depth didn’t really arrive right away, it had to occur over time . You have to think of it as a three dimensional fleshed out person in this case a bear. I outwardly asked myself questions like: “what would he eat?”, “What would be his favorite restaurant?”, ”How would he react in this scenario?
– Interview with Ali Fitzgerald on Berlin Drawing Room Blog.

Who : Would you like to draw comics?

This course is intended both for beginners and advanced participants who are interested in learning more about comics. At the end of the course, we should have several pages of new comics and hopefully a new (or renewed) enthusiasm for the medium!

Our Online Workshop Format:

  • Livestreaming classes take place via online video conference (using Zoom). The instructor conducts live demos with step-by-step instruction so that you can work together in real time. You also have the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback during class time.
  • We keep class sizes small and the atmosphere is interactive and supportive.
  • Finish exercises or practice at your own pace, at home, outside of class time.
  • Receive  individual feedback  on your completed work and exchange comments and questions with the instructor and your fellow workshop participants in an  encouraging  environment.
  • Find  supplemental material  and watch the progress of other participants by visiting the workshop Dropbox folder in between classes.
  • Recordings  from each week’s livestreaming session are available in case you miss a class or want to review a demo.

Supply list

  • Pencils, pens (your choice, but a variety of thicknesses works best)
  • Computer paper, thicker paper (bristol board if you have it), a sketchbook
  • Erasers and rulers if you want//need them. Scissors.
  • Good but not necessary to have a small bottle of black ink and a small paintbrush. You will be free for the most part to use any materials you prefer, so if you like pastels or watercolors, feel free to bring those to the workshop.
  • * The only thing absolutely needed is some kind of paper and drawing utensils.

Berlin Drawing Room offers workshops taught by professional artists since 2011with a focus on drawing and painting, based in the belief that everyone can learn how to draw! We believe that the experience of hands-on creation should be accessible to anyone and that drawing is not a skill reserved for art making but is an essential part of communication and perceiving the world.
