    This is perfect for a cartoonist/comic book artist who has a project in some stage of development, or at least conception. We’ll work one-on-one to help crystalize your strip or graphic novel, get it going in the right direction, smooth off the rough edges, dismantle the brick walls, jump-start that which is stalled out. Emphasis on storytelling via illustration.

    Sessions are kept small enough to maximize individual attention. Of course, guidance tailored to one project may be adapted and applied to others, so never underestimate the value of being in an environment with learners who are likewise motivated.

    Artist / writer Craig Boldman is best known for his work for Archie Comics, having written over 100 consecutive issues of the Jughead comic book (teamed with artist Rex Lindsey) and has been the writer of the Archie syndicated comic strip since 1992. He has also frequently contributed stories to the entire Archie Comics line.

    Craig has worked on Superman, 'Mazing Man, Bugs Bunny, Disney's Doug, Disney's Recess, Ed Edd & Eddie, Bazooka Joe and his own webcomic and book series, 'Tailipoe.' 

    Craig served as the chairperson of the Great Lakes chapter of the National Cartoonists Society from 2006-20011.

    Craig is currently working on a revival of the Silver-age Charlton Comics character, 'Cap'n Catnip,' with co-creator Tim Fuller.
