Small Press Expo has announced a series of comic book making workshops, featuring hands-on instruction from some of the most talented makers of independent comics. The workshops will occur at SPX 2019, to be held Saturday, September 14 and Sunday, September 15.

Educators from Pittsburgh, PA-based Comics Workbook will host workshops with Eisner-nominated Master Cartoonist Carol Tyler, animator Scott Morse,teacher/graphic novelist Jessica Abel and other experts of the form.

Participants will have the opportunity to hone their storytelling and drawing skills – whether they are a beginner or expert. The popular clay figurine workshop with Liz Reed returns this year, and Camilla Zhang will offer two workshops on getting the most out of your Kickstarter campaign!
Due to popular demand, this year’s SPX has a full slate of 14 different workshops, with the complete schedule of Comics Workshop sessions on the SPX web site.

Panels for SPX 2019 will be announced next week.

Sign up here for a session (or two) to Learn to Draw Comic from the Pros!
