Collaborative Comics

Comics Jam, Casey Roonan

Prompt

With a partner, trade off drawing comic panels to improvise a comic sequence.

Supplies

Art Supplies: Papermate Flair Felt-Tip Pen
Art Supplies: Copy Paper

Process

1.
Each person has 1 sheet of paper, therefore, there are 2 comics being created at the same time. Both people simultaneously draw a single comic panel at the top left of their paper. 

Comic panels can be any shape or size, but there should be room on the page for at least three panels. Draw directly in pen so there is no erasing, there won’t be time to fuss!

For tips on the Papermate Flair Felt-Tip Pen, watch the video above.

2.
Trade pages every 5-10 minutes, and draw a new panel to the right of your partner’s. Build a story by responding to the previous panel.

3.
Trade again and repeat, until both pages are filled.  Keep adding panels for as long as you want!
