Jamie Smith, creator of the cartoon “Nuggets,” came into our class on Tuesday and gave us a brief lecture on cartoons and comics.  It was interesting to look at all the different styles and techniques used in creating successful illustrations.

He brought in a nice variety of comic books for the class to enjoy.

The last half of class was focused on linear perspective.  Laura did a brief overview on one and two point perspective and then we worked from the still life.  Using our imagination and what we just learned from Jamie, we transformed our drawing into a cartoon/comic.  Using a favorite phrase or lyrics to a song, students divided their drawing into panels and then altered their drawings to reflect their phrase. Fun and challenging.

**Our out of class assignment this week is to create our own comic/cartoon drawing and to make sure we include linear perspective.**
