Cartooning Camp Comics 6 – Blake Heilesen
For the past two weeks I have been sharing my love for cartooning with the Annie Wright Schools Camp Wright summer program. For the first week I was the weekly guest artist and taught basics of simplified comic drawing to over one hundred campers. During the second week I ran a specialized cartooning camp for 3rd to 8th graders with 17 campers. Over five days they drew comics, learned how professionals make comics and played art games. The focus was to create their own comic strip series, pick their best comic from that series and finish it with ink, color and dialog. For the next few weeks Sidekick Quests will become a daily comic showcasing each one of my cartooning camp campers and their great strips.
Today’s comic is Clone Comics by Blake Heilesen, 4th Grader.
Blake was a great camper. He always had a smile on his face and eagerly worked on every assignment. Blake clearly likes Star Wars and his Clone Wars gag comic is great. That is a bunny in the last panel. Makes me laugh every time I see it.
