In years past, cartoonists have had swipe files, while in other visual artforms, the relationship between reference and new art is more nuanced, and it’s in this spirit that this cartooning workshop explores the role between old art and new. Participants will be given access to a storehouse of images mostly showing mythological demons and monsters lithographs and woodcut imagery, with a demonstration of how to plug them into new work. Additionally, practical considerations regarding landscape, line weight, illusions of depth, and rendering will all be approached and reverse engineered through an interrogation of old traditions.
