Comic Strip

Art II Project

This was a fun project I did with my students involving comic strips. For this assignment we studied Chuck Jones, the inventor of the Looney Tunes, and we spent a lot of time drawing and developing cartoon characters. The end result was one comic strip from each student. We even had a little competition  to see whose comic strip would be put into the school newspaper. 

  • Large drawing paper
  • Pencils
  • Rulers
  • Ink Pen
  • Colored Pencils
  1. The first step is to develop characters and layout in sketches, as well as, an actual joke.
  2. Once the students have settled on a layout then they have to measure out the boxes for their comic strip with their rulers. The size of our comic strips was pretty large.
  3. The first frame in the strip needs to be some sort of title.
  4. Everything is penciled in first.
  5. Then go over everything with a  quality ink pen
  6. Lastly, I let my student choose whether or not they wanted color. If they choose color then we used colored pencils to fill in the rest.
