Now is the time to get those creative characters out of your sketchbook and share their journey with the world! Through the powerful medium of comics, you will concentrate on visual narrative structure by creating panel-to-panel transitions and dynamic layouts. Working with traditional media, you will be challenged to develop your own unique aesthetic while producing all aspects of comics and sequential art.

Craig Maher is a painter living in the Hudson Valley of New York. Craig creates fantastic and surreal narrative illustrations for movie posters, game companies and private commissions in traditional oil paints and digital illustration.
