Inspiration vs Structure
ANDY SCHMIDT: We have an idea! We’re inspired to draw or write about it! A story to tell to inspire others! But how do we capture this inspiration??? By imposing structure and formula and analysis on it. Structuring your story and your art and your page layouts is helpful, there’s no doubt–but is there too much structure? Or too little? The eternal yin and yang of storytelling is explored and you get to ask your questions!

If you want to make comics, write, draw, letter, and color comics, or improve as a comics creator, you’ll find like-minded friends and colleagues in our online workshops and courses. We hope to see you there!
