Cartooning in the Digital Age

Cartooning in the Digital Age is a cartooning workshop that will be held at the South Sioux City Public library on August 26th at 6:00 p.m.

Cartooning in the Digital Age is a two-hour program by veteran cartoonist Bill Barnes (Unshelved, Not Invented Here). The first part, The Basics of Cartooning, is a fast and fun workshop for middle schoolers through adult, covering every step in creating a comic strip: creating memorable characters, writing dialog, lettering, pencilling, inking, and coloring. The second part, The Technology and Business of Cartooning, is oriented towards mature teens and adults. Bill demonstrates how to use computers to create and publish comic strips to the Internet, and how to make money doing it.


Bill Barnes loves librarians, show tunes, and meat. He can count his toes without taking off his shoes. Over the past eleven years, he has tried to convince Gene that the meaning of “partnership” is doing what he says 99% of the time. He can often be seen wandering the floor at trade shows playing “The Final Countdown” on his ukulele Death Adder. In his spare time he draws Unshelved and writes a comic about the software industry, Not Invented Follow @billba.
