NANDO: Creating Comics on the Comics MLitt course


I've started on the Comics and Graphic Novels Mlitt course at the University of Dundee recently and one of the modules I'm working on is “Creating Comics” with Phillip Vaughan.

As part of the module, I'm required to keep a blog detailing the creation of a new 8-12 page story, due to be finished in December.

Anyone interested in how I do comics should give this a read, as although I always give a brief bit of background in my comic books, this will be more detailed than those.

So far I have written up the "pre-creation" thinking to my story and published the first two layout pages.

Have a read here.

DUNDEE SHMUNDEE!


I've been wanting to do a series of Dundee themed comics for a good while. The idea has been percolating in the back of my mind. As time has gone by I've chosen topics I'd like to write and draw about. I finally got the opportunity to start on what I've called Dundee Shmundee!

The strips have now begun running as a webcomic over at the Dundee Comics Creative Space site.

Have a look here.

THAT COMIC SMELL 2: UNDERGROUND AND LESSER KNOWN COMICS


The new episode of That Comic Smell is now online.

The podcast is like eavesdropping on a bunch of pals discussing comics. Teaspoons clinking for added ambience.

From the website:
 
"This month, in the kitchen, we discuss some of the heroes of the underground movement and some other titles that have tickled our interests from those less well known creators.
We also have a brief talk on how our very own David Robertson comes up with ideas for his comics (Fred Egg Comics). We find out the name of one of Tom's amazon Wishlists and our second half is dedicated to all the latest and San Diego Comic Con 2016 News that has came out since last we met.
Also, who is Steve...Rogers? Trainer? Trevor?
