EVENT: PJ HOLDEN'S Q-CON Workshop
“I’ve been asked to run a small workshop for Q-CON on sunday the 24th of June. My intentention is to a run a short “how to draw Judge Dredd” comic strip workshop. Hopefully I’ll have copies of a Dredd script for samples (you can download the scripts from 2000ad’s submissions guidelines here – I’ll be using the script “Judge Dredd – PF.doc”).
Workshop will last 2 hours starting at 10am, first hour will be a script read through and layouts – discussing things like composition, etc. Will try and layout entire 6 page script, but emphasise will be on page 1 – which, we will be pencilling in the second hour. (10 minute break between hours you’ll be relieved to know).
If you’re coming along and get a chance to read through the script and get some layouts done BEFORE the workshop that’d be very useful and should guarantee you’ll get a lot more out of the whole thing.
Oh, I have prepped (for my own use) a pdf file of “bluelines” for drawing 2000ad work – 2000ad pages are slightly wider than A3, so the side guides for bleed won’t print if you print this on A3 paper – not to worry though as it’s plenty big enough for most drawing purposes.

(BTW this will be a tentative foot forward into doing the same thing in a broader scale at some point)”
