All students are encouraged to participate and contribute to the process as Morgan leads the group in a fun and creative experience. Songs are recorded during the session. In the Cartooning/Illustrating workshop Morgan guides students through “step-by-step character building” tasks/projects, focused around his own work on Gustafer Yellowgold. Workshops range from basic “How to draw Gustafer” to more in-depth explorations of sequential panel art, plot basics and character creation and development.
