Drawing a Crowd

2007-03-03ComicWorkshops.gifListen up doodlers, animaniacs, and true believers. This month, Max the Mutt Animation School wants to give you super powers! Well, super-artistic powers, anyway.
From Saturday, March 10 to Sunday, March 18, Max the Mutt will be open to the public. If you’ve been considering animation as a career, or if you’re just curious about how all those neat-o pictures come to life, this is your chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at the animation process. The school teaches everything from classical animation to state-of-the-art 3D graphic design, so whether you’re into Felix the Cat or the latest incarnation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you’re bound to find something to make your eye stalks pop out of your head.
For those who like to do more than just watch, Max the Mutt will also be hosting free weekend workshops during their open house. On March 10 and 17, cartoonist, character designer and Max the Mutt animation director Tina Seeman (Polka Dot Door, Bookmice) will host the “Let’s Animate!” animation workshop. On March 11, veteran comic book artist Richard Pace (X-Men, Terror Inc.) will present “Drawing Comic Book Monsters.”
Max the Mutt Animation School is located at 952 Queen Street West, near Shaw. For more information, or to sign up for one of the workshops, call (416) 703-6877.
