Comics are a great tool for self care because in a short amount of time with just a pen and something to write on, you can tell a big story, reframe a moment, or just make something goofy that lightens your mood.  In this workshop we’ll get confident making simple comics, and learn how our comic making practice can support our self care and wellbeing. We’ll play drawing games, learn how to express emotion with simple lines, tell the stories we want to tell, and play some more drawing games.

Students will need:

  • a blank sketchbook, no lines—at least 9x9
  • 1 black pen they really like

Vida Rose is a multidisciplinary artist and comics maker from Seattle. Her comics have appeared in Washington State Book award nominated "Ghosts of Seattle's Past" and Bunny Lee's Lotus anthology. Her self published comic "A Perfect Cope-ol" has received critical praise. 

  • "In her illustrations and comics, Vida harvests not just nostalgia and wide-eyed curiosity, but also the raw and often hilarious vantage point from which children first experience the world. In so doing, she captures the stark honesty of earliest impressions, both the source of pure joy and our most deeply-rooted hurts."
    - Jaimee Garbacik, editor/curator of Ghosts of Seattle Past and author of Gender & Sexuality For Beginners
