Expanded Course Description
This class will be taught by nationally syndicated cartoonist, Jan Eliot, the creator of Stone Soup.

Pre-Registration Requirements

This is a creatively oriented class over the length of which you will be required to produce original comics on strict deadline. Seating will be limited and in order to be considered for registration you must submit some examples of your prior comics work for assessment.

You must send this work (as scans, PDFs, or a link) to Professor Saunders at ben@uoregon.edu by February 18th at the latest. Professor Saunders will then forward the work to Ms. Eliot for her final decision.

You are asked to submit at a minimum either 2-3 newspaper style strips, or 3-5 single panel cartoons, or 1-2 pages of full-page comic art. If you have lots of work to choose from, you may submit more than the minimum. For example, if you have worked in more than one of these forms, you may submit examples of each; and if you have published work in Art Ducko or some other campus or online venue, you may submit that work for consideration. But if you do have a large cartoon/comics portfolio already, please try to limit yourself to the very best examples: your ten best strips and/or cartoons, or five strongest sequential pages.

All drawing styles, from stick figures to photo-realism, will be considered. Please confirm whether you have junior or senior status when you submit your work. Please remember to submit your samples by no later than February 18th; submissions received after this date will not be considered. You will receive notification as to whether you have approval to register for the course by no later than February 22nd.
