Welcome

A friend recently sent me a link to an online comic book called http://www.nightzero.com/. I was so inspired by the idea I talked with my Digital Imaging students and they liked the idea of making their own digital comic books. Now we are using this technique in our digital signage system to educate our peers about important topics like recycling.

Your students will love creating graphic novels with their digital cameras and a little Photoshop magic. This project is a great way to incorporate reading, writing and team work into your graphic design curriculum.

Learning Resources

I have created Flash based tutorials for all the projects we will cover. This method of teaching/learning might be new to you but I think you may find it extremely powerful once you get into it. By putting all my lessons into this web site you have control of your learning. You can go as fast or slow as your learning style requires. You can stop the lesson at any time and practice the techniques or ask me for more clarification. Once you have watched a tutorial, make sure to take the time to practice what you just learned to ensure that you understand the concept.
