Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Start Time: 01:00PM    End Time: 04:00PM

Our collaboration with Art Originals in offering a workshop with Darwyn Cooke last fall was an enormous success. Building on the momentum of that event Art Originals is mounting a new artshow at the Gladstone Hotel on Saturday the 27th of February with fan favourite artist GUY DAVIS! The Toronto Cartoonists Workshop will be there to offer a rare opportunity to study in a classroom setting with Guy.

The workshop titled “Constructive Storytelling: The 180 Minute Masterclass with Guy Davis” will take place from 1pm to 4pm on the 27th. The cost of the workshop is $105. and space is limited to 15 students. If you wish to take part in this workshop please contact Walter Dickinson at: info@cartoonistsworkshop.com .

Constructive Storytelling: The 180 Minute Masterclass with GUY DAVIS

This 3 hour workshop will offer a glimpse into the creative process of the 2009 Eisner award winner for Best Penciller/Inker… GUY DAVIS.

The workshop will begin with a digital presentation illuminating the scope of Davis’ career and the steps he goes through to bring the written word to life. Starting with the thumbnail process, Guy will show students how he directs the eye through each panel. Concepts such as staging, spotting blacks, shape design and visual flow will be discussed. Students will have the opportunity to interpret and roughly lay out a page of script with sample character designs and reference provided. Guy will then critique each student effort in an attempt to illustrate the multitude of possibilities for page construction.

Throughout the lecture component the instructor will demonstrate by drawing directly in front of the class. By the end of the workshop students should have a strong grasp of how to interpret a page of script for maximum visual impact. Character design and research will also be touched upon.

Portfolio reviews will not be a part of this workshop, but Guy will be glad to give individual critiques when opportunity permits at the Toronto Comicon event the following day, February the 28th.
