Miss Anthology 2017 Cover
Miss Anthology’s mission is to support racially and economically diverse female and genderqueer youth by teaching professional skills through hands-on workshops, and publishing their work in print and online. By introducing these young artists and writers to the comics and the art industries before they graduate, they will gain a firm understanding and head start on their careers, as well as an established network of peers within this otherwise white, cis male-dominated field.
Miss Anthology is supported in part by a C3:Initiative project residency, the Precipice Fund, the Andy Warhol Foundation, and Calligram Foundation.


Post-Production is a one day course designed to help you learn how to edit and get your comics ready for print or online publishing!

Our 2017 Post-Production course was taught by Melanie Stevens and Kelly Fitzpatrick.


Inking and Coloring

Inking and Coloring is a one day course designed to help you learn how to ink your own comics with a dynamic and unique flair! We’ll explore the many methods of inking comic panels, the various ways to communicate depth through marks and lines, as well as the various methods and media that can be used to create inks.  

Our 2017 Inking and Coloring course was taught by Melanie Stevens and Kelly Fitzpatrick.


Lettering is a one day, 3 hour course that will marry the words with your pictures. We’ll look at a variety of ways that professional comic artists add text to their works. The beauty of your own handwriting, carefully rendering lettering using different types of pens, and computer generated fonts will all be explored, as well as placement, size, and legibility. It is recommended that participants bring layouts or ideas of the tone, theme, aesthetic of the fonts they want to try. Maybe a sentence or two to practice with!

Our 2017 instructor was Anna Vo.
