When I was in the 6th grade and the school arts budgets got slashed, my grandfather enrolled me in classes at the Worcester Art Museum. There, I took a ton of comic book classes, throughout my high school years. In two classes, we had our work bound and printed. It was so, so cool to see your work in print. Here are my two comics from those classes.
They are from my teenage years, so they're a bit more violent than anything I do now. (Blame it on the teen-angst.)
On a side note, my instructor for these classes, was none other than Mark Lynch, host of WICN's Inquiry.
