This year our monthly meetings will feature demos and presentations about different aspects of the process of making comics. It’s Christmas in July because we have a second presenter on July 12th! Our special guest presenter is Will Porter. See details below. 

Will Porter will be joining us to discuss his comics-making process. Specifically he’ll share some of his image construction methods and comic-ing processes with some examples from prior work and a demonstration of a technique he uses for splicing hand drawn textures into digital pieces. Along the way he’ll also share his experiences in self-publishing.

Will Porter is a terrestrial mammal, cartoonist, and illustrator based in Chicago. His work has been featured in SAIC’s F Newsmagazine, Xerox Candybar, and Printed in Blood’s The Thing Artbook. Will has also written, illustrated and published his own comic, Dinosaur Sheriff since 2009. You can see more of is work here and here.

Third Coast Comics is located in Rogers Park on Sheridan Rd. just south of the Loyola Red Line station (east side of the street next to Felice’s kitchen).

The event is BYOB, so feel free to bring something to drink and/or eat.
