[comic_art] The Donna Barr Trade School

2495.Heavens, I wish I could take advantage of this &

If you give any sort of a care about comics, you've got to love Donna Barr's work. She's someone I'm going to cite as an influence when I finally get famous.

This, as far as I'm concerned, is a non-negotiable. Her work - Stinz and The Desert Peach - are legends and if you don't know them, chummie, you have some amazing and excellent comic reading ahead of you. Intellectually and emotionally challenging, which characters you'll never forget. Do as I say and go get them, thanks.

If you ever wanted to learn how to do it from the master, or a master, it's hard to get an introduction. Well, chummie, here's your chance.

Donna will, if I read the linked post correctly, teach you what she knows about story, art, making and selling fantastic comics for $4500. That's the whole tuition. And if you think that's too much, my friend, then you haven't priced an art school lately. Anything like this worth having is worth paying for, and if I had $4.5K, I'd already be there. At $4.5 Kilobucks, it's a freakin bargain.

It's like having Stephen Hawking teach you physics in return for a nice dinner, if the price/value thing still hasn't sunk in.

And anybody can do it, really ... she'll teach you in person or via intartube.

If I had the money, I'd be doing it, If you have the money, well ... you go do it, you lucky primate. The link is here:

THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY: The Donna Barr Trade School

Now, you know what to do!

If you don't have the scratch, just go to to http://www.desert-peach.com/ to view the art and get that inspiration.

God... thank you... shuffle, hang head.

I put this up on Facebook. It's outright schilling:

"The ONLY reason I'm posting this (because it's EMBARRASSINGLY NICE TO ME) is the possibility of getting students... http://zehnkatzen.blogspot.com/2010/09/comicart-donna-barr-trade-school.html"

(Darn blogger moderation didn't get back to me right away about it … )

Yeah, I love your stuff. Always had, always will. And if you ever do anything more neato - and I don't see how you can't do anything more neato - I'll never hesitate to tell people about it.

Hey, I'm just a little ol' blogger, but I like what's I like!

I think I should bounce this out to facebook actually. Remiss of me not to do so!

Does it also welcome the idea of online trade schooling?
