More Comic Jams

In my continuing ed Cartooning Basics and undergraduate Short Form Comics courses at SVA, we make time to pass around rule-based comic jam pages. 

I have each student start a jam and note its rule. The pages pile up, circulate, and slowly get done, often over the course of several years.

An idea I've tried recently is to invite students to invent a rule that hasn't been tried before, like this omnilingual jam below:

Comic jams are a great way to interact with other artists, try out styles and ideas, & test your wits. This is just one example of the cartooning challenges that come up in my courses. Come learn more at the information session this Thursday, 1/11/18.
