The goal of this course is to create Risograph-printed, narrative-based minicomics from start to finish. Students will experiment with writing and drawing short comics, and learn to use Risograph to print and assemble them. Throughout the course they will be challenged to thrive within the limitations of this printing process. Students will also learn to analyze comics not only through written and drawn techniques, but also through color, physicality, and printing technique. This course is for students who are interested in creating comics, as well as producing thoughtful, tangible art objects. By the end of the course, students will have completed multiple zines, with the final project being a print run of a multi-color, Risograph-printed minicomic. NOTE: This course includes access to the RisoLAB only; access to the 5th floor printmaking facilities is not included.
