comics jam session

One of the girls at the James Allen's Preparatory School came up with this guy, he's such a dude.




I made up this sheet this weekend and tried it out on today's classes after talking to them about how to create interesting characters. If you want to try it out, you can download a PDF version of it here for the next 30 days. Let me know how it went!





Here's Sarah Turner, the English teacher who's having her class adapt The Silver Sword by Ian
Serraillier into graphic novel form. And Nicola Jones, the librarian who's building up their stock of comics, including all of Raymond Briggs' books, and spotted Andi Watson's Glitter series, the Stormbreaker series, lots of Shaun Tan books, and Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean's book, The Day I Swapped my Dad for Two Goldfish.


And I even got to see a good friend of mine, yay! (The little red book is the one she made for Viviane Schwarz here.)

It is so spot on.

The comic was pretty fab, too, but unfortunately it came out all blurry in my photo, boo.

ALL HAIL POCTIMUS
That worksheet is great! I love the idea of a ring of kids just passin' 'em around, making comics. Do you teach as some kind of independent contractor, or is this volunteer work?

Yay, Poctimus rules!!! :D

Yes, I work freelance, so I get to charge for school visits. (The Society of Authors gives guidelines on fees.) It's tricky, trying to balance visits with work; it basically means a whole day of not working on books, but then it's great to see the people I'm making the books for and to find out what works with them, and see their own work.
