Strip Task One: Using one to the online sites below make a two panel cartoon
strip of your favourite LAME joke. You can aim is to make your audience groan
with just how lame the joke is.
Belief Comics - This is my favourite.
- lots of options on this one.
Place - Nice feel and style.
Write Think - Nice drawing style in this one.
- Very interesting style used in this one.
2 - For the longer story.
Underpants - Just press the start button for a little toilet humour :)
Toondoo - Flash based
and if you sign up you can embed the strips into your blog. (This one is for older
students - make sure you read the 'terms of service' and check with your parents
before signing up).
-take a screen dump of your comic strip and add it to your blog but not the Captain
Underpants one as the copyright for that character would belong to the author.
Strip Task Two: Covert a well known story or event into a comic strip using
pencils, paper, an eraser and a black felt tip pen.
Strip Task Three: Use the websites provided to produce a short comic strip
about something you are passionate about.
Strip Task Four: Using the websites above create a comic strip of a joke that
will make an adult laugh. NB you will need to use a clever play on words rather
than something that will make a child laugh.
Strip Task Five: In a group of 4 convert a fable into
a comic strip. Hints - You will need to sub-task a lot and
be very clear on the design decisions you all make.
