It’s a lot of fun to tell stories in a comic format. At David Boller’s Virtual Comics School we’re looking at the creative process from the creation to the final comic book in great detail using the entire creative palette. Starting with the creation of a story to the structure and finishes with professional tools, all aspects of creation will be discussed in great detail. Drawing and writing a great comic story is not a matter of luck or coincidence. But with the necessary guidance and knowledge it can be a satisfying experience that brings results.
David Boller’s Virtual Comics School is one of the only comic teaching programs that shows you how to create sequential art from script to the final page in an organized fashion. VCS can also assist you in seeing your work published or finding a publisher. It’s not only a school but also a creative adviser that encompasses far more than just technical proficiency. Twice a year we will also publish an anthology book with the comics of our students.
Founder and creator David Boller explains: „I have lead many workshops all over the world and it is my goal to hand down my knowledge to up and coming talents. An online-school is the perfect contemporary solution for students all over the world who ordinarily wouldn’t have access to this information in their area or don’t want to hunt down countless confusing online tutorials. New technology makes the exchange of information as simple as being in the same room.“
ENDLESS Sky is finally ready to be published in the USA and the UK and is featured in the March Previews. Please check out the official PR below for more details and order code. We hope that you will give this book a chance
When the Swiss comic book artist David Boller left his home country to work professionally in the American comic book industry, he had no idea where his journey would take him. Through the friendship with a famous American artist he meets his future wife, Rachel. But the impending threat of Rachel’s kidney failure would alter his life forever. ENDLESS SKY is not just about immigration and artistic self-discovery, but also tackles the morally difficult subject of organ transplantion.
When David Boller returned to Switzerland after a 17 year long absence, he began to serialize his adventures on his website Zampano in weekly installments and in the German newsstand magazine COMIX in monthly installments. After three years of work and publication in Germany and France, ENDLESS SKY is now finally been published in English for the first time as a thick 280 page paperback.
David Boller explains, “I wanted to tell a traditional story with a beginning, a middle and an end and not just ramble on about some random moments from my life. I think I succeeded at delivering a compelling story and the feedback I’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive.”
ENDLESS SKY will be available in May 2014. Please see Diamond Previews March 2014 for ordering information.
