  1. Comic drawing certainly sounds great…creating your own comics not just require drawing skills but a great creative mind which can create a coherent storyline..

  2. I didn’t know these types of workshops exist. I dont have any talent when it comes to drawing and this one is a great avenue for someone like me who wants to learn the craft. hope we have these types pf workshops as well here in Cebu. 🙂

  4. It seems like a very interesting workshop. I recently dabbled in to Editorial Cartoon. It is fun but also hard. I feel I can benefit from leaning from others (to improve my skills).
