Nearly thirty middle and high school students were enraptured by comic artist Jay Piscopo’s Comic Workshop held at the Scarborough Library on March 12th. Many members of Scarborough High School’s Anime Club came. The creator of Capt’n Eli and other characters showed aspiring artists how to use different basic shapes to convey emotions.
Making scribbles into drawings was fun and freeing; many were surprised by what they could create from a friend’s scribble. Jay gave lots of tips on how to break into comics as a career. He kindly stayed after the workshop to look at the students’ work, giving praise and helpful suggestions. The afternoon was a great success for all.
