I’ll be teaming up with my buddy, writer/artist Matthew Dow Smith, to offer a Creating Comics class as part of the Project Lift Fundraiser to benefit the after-school programs at the Franklin Community Center in Saratoga Springs, NY. The class will be held at Comic Depot in the Wilton Mall in Saratoga Springs, date to be determined so it’s amenable to everyone who signs up.

A fundraising event will be held Thursday evening, Oct. 11, at Longfellows in Saratoga Springs. For $75, attendees are wined and dined, and have the opportunity to sign up for various classes and events (for varying fees). The Creating Comics class is $60 per person, and will include some special, autographed items. All proceeds benefit the Franklin Community Center. The class will provide a step-by-step tour of the comic creation process, from script to pencils, inks, colors and letters. There will also be a Q & A session.

If you’re not able to attend the Oct. 11 event, you can still sign up for the Creating Comics class, if any slots remain. Complete information can be had here:

I’m unfortunately not able to be at Longfellows, because of commitments at the New York Comic Con the same evening. But Matt and I are looking forward to the class, and raising some needed funds for a worthy program. If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the comments, and I’ll do my best to answer them.
