    Great session overall
    I always get too frustrated after courses/lessons I take, trying to figure out how to apply what I’ve learned, but that also means that it gives me new information to improve my work.
    I really loved the “tough love” attitude he has. You know he is going to give whatever feedback he can, in the most straightforward way possible!

      I agree. Howar’s “tough love” is appropriate for this business, which can be very tough. He shows what kind of study, commitment, and focus it takes to improve your craft and excel in this business.

    I thought it was an excellent class. He’s very thorough and has a clear theory as to why he does what he does.

    From the work that I’ve seen, his practice matches his theory, which is always nice to see.

    The structuralist approach was interesting as well.

    Howard was amazing. He talked in a way that could easily be understood. Understanding what’s being taught has always been an issue for me, but Howard used references to things that I could easily remember. The explanation of the meaning for each panel gave me a good sense of a “formula” that I could use and alter to fit how I want my art to look. Would definitely recommend it.

    Here’s something I found interesting, and that I think warrants further discussion:

    As a writer, I noticed that Chaykin recommends a much more detailed script, with more direction–especially in terms of layout–than many of our other guests, such as Igle/Pyer.

    <font color=”#333333″>To elaborate a bit more … Listening to Howard gave me a good sense of how to think through the problems in sequential storytelling, and where flashy newer conventions need to be discarded in favor of more basic devices that make sure that the story being told works for the medium.

    Hey Buddy,

    First off thanks so much for this class/lesson/session.. thingy. It was AWESOME.

    Having the chance to not only hear from Howard Chaykin, but also ask him questions about what he was explaining made the experiance invaulable. I will be attending all three classes to get the most out of each talk. I have been telling anyone who will listen how great it was to have such a small group size that we could each feel included and heard.

    Thank you for getting Comic Book School this new opportunity to learn comics from the people who make them, and make them great.

    D Alley, the Redeheadeded.

    Chaykin’s approach, which is equally structuralist and irreverent, is unique among the myriad or comics professionals teaching today. His class is thorough, well-thought out, and clear. A must for any creator looking to up their game.

    just in case my email is bouncing

    “Comics are like a train you can fuck up and move on” ” The negative space is where the creator’s imagination kicks in”

    “Left his home safety right is adventure”

    “Panel boards are a graphic design that is why the white space is so important”

    I think I found this topic too late.

    Can I still experience the seminar?

    Is there a fee for part 1?
