Thanks to Gabrielle Bell and Dash Shaw for teaching week-long workshops

It was a fabulous, adventurous, great couple of weeks at SAW. We want to THANK DASH SHAW and GABRIELLE BELL for conducting week-long workshops. Pictures of each at our FLICKR. Dash had the students doing writing exercises from prompts on the first day, and 10-minute comics from prompts on the second. Then each student was given a hand-picked assignment by Dash to render in 16 pages in 3 days,…
