The finished Autobiographical Comic Strips

I thought I would post some images of some of the completed comic strips created by the 6-8th grade students.  Many of the students worked very hard on these, and they did a fabulous job telling their true story using pictures and words in tandem.  

Throughout this project, the students learned about thumbnail sketches, planning out a work of art, comic book conventions such as including panels and gutters, zooming in to the action, communicating through facial expressions, and varying your line weight. Students also learned how to use lines to create value.  Finally, I hope they learned that even if they can't draw perfectly or realistically, they can still use simple images to communicate a whole lot of (true) story and (hilarious) information to a viewer.
