You don’t know what you don’t know... 

So what happens when a group of the Pacific Northwest College of Art’s finest cartoonists dive into the unknown? Whether it’s navigating the dating world, learning to be your own person in the shadow of those that have come before you, or the unfolding of a new romance, Unversed is a collection of stories that navigate unfamiliar situations and explore the growth that comes from not knowing. 

This Spring is the first time that I’ve offered an Advanced Graphic Novel class. The original idea for the class was to have the students work on longer format, 10-page comics that we would publish into mini-comics or flip books. We’d also cover a lot of professional practices including self-publishing, working with an agent and book publisher, pitches, etc. when I was looking at the roster of the class, I just saw the talent there and said screw it – let’s swing for the fences. Let’s make an anthology. Let's get it funded. Let’s actually learn about professional practice and self-publishing by doing the work. Not just the drawing, but the research and business aspect of what it takes to get a book made and funded and what to do once you have it in your hands. 

- Jonathan Hill, our Advanced Comics Instructor

 

 

Unversed is a 150 page, 2 color, softcover comics anthology of stories from 11 emerging cartoonists that navigate unfamiliar situations and explore the growth that comes from not knowing. We recommend this book for mature readers! 

We have spent the past four months creating all the art for the book and the only step left is to get it printed. Once we reach our funding goal we are ready to send the file to the printer!
