Making and Drawing: Comics in the DIY/Maker World

From Will Eisner’s PS Preventive Maintenance Monthly magazine created in the 50's for the US Army, to Scott McCloud’s cartoon introduction to Google Chrome, comics have often been used to describe technical material. Comics unique combination of words and images can be very effective in the DIY/Maker world, to explain how to build/wire/solder a project or to document the process of a build. This session will look at how comics are being used in the maker space and at various tools that can be used to produce comics to explain or to document the construction of a project.
