Graphic Novel Toolbox

            I attended a graphic novel workshop on March 17, 2012 in Pacific Palisades. Mac McCool and Marla Frazee were the lecturers.  I was worried that I wouldn’t learn anything new, since I’d taken that 12-week long Graphic Novel History class at Art Center last summer. However, this workshop was more geared toward the production rather than the history of the medium. Whereas I’ve read quite a few books on the topic, it is always easier to take in the information in a lecture format, at least for me. Sure it was a superficial overview, but it was still a helpful refresher. And Marla Frazee’s talk reedified the need for thoughtful composition and emotional communication. Pictures to come...
