Hey everyone! So it is July 1st (Happy Canada Day to my northern neighbors!) which means if you were participating in Nagranowrimo in June we are technically done with the month long challenge. Hopefully many of you were able to make some headway on your projects, even just starting is a big step! For others that weren’t able to get far, hopefully the posts in the last month were useful and/or inspiring.
So what is next? If you would like to share your Nagranowrimo stuff with the world, upload and tag it “nagranowrimo” for those tracking the tag to see. You are also welcome to send links to these posts and I’ll reblog them here. I will continue to reblog tutorials, useful links and word of wisdom/inspiration, and I always welcome requests for resources you would like to see.
I also welcome input on when the next Nagranowrimo session should be. If we wanted to have another one this year, I’d be open to October, otherwise I think we should aim for early-ish next year.
In the meantime if you would like to get a little graphic novel “independent study” in, I recommend Drawing Words and Writing Pictures by Jessica Abel and Matt Madden which is set up like a course book. Another book to maybe check out is Drawing Comics Lab by Robyn Chapman which has 52 comic-making related exercises. But most importantly keep up on your drawing and try to get into the habit of drawing every day!
