Slideshow: Graphic Novel Intensive 2009

PNCA’s recent Graphic Novel Intensive celebrated the process of comic book storytelling and the work of comic book artists.
This year, faculty member and multi-media artist Daniel Duford (The Naked Boy, Radio Relay Towers), illustrator Ellen Forney (I Love Led Zeppelin, The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie and web site) led students through a week-long comics boot camp.
Keep an eye on pnca.willamette.edu for the release of the Graphic Novel Intensive Anthology — original art and pre-orders will be available soon.
