We’re honored to team up with The Chicago Publishing Resource Center to host John Porcellino for his terrific week-long workshop, “Making Comics Out of Life.”
This workshop will be Monday June 2- Friday June 6, 2014 at the ChiPRC, 858 N. Ashland Avenue.
Directions and info about the space in Chicago: http://chiprc.org/about/
John has run his workshop twice at SAW in Florida and is now bringing his warm, intelligent workshop to Chicago, immediately after CAKE.
Classes will run roughly 6 hours a day for each day. The first three days will focus on individual exercises, where the final two will be spent tying the exercises together and publishing an end-of-workshop zine.
Don’t miss this chance to learn from one of the greatest cartoonists in the country.
Price: $250 via paypal.
Does not include housing. SAW, John and the ChiPRC are offering no assistance in finding Chicago housing, though SAW can put students in touch with each other if need be. Email us. Please be resourceful, try couchsurfing.com, or airbandb, or friends of friends.
