Learn to make people think and laugh with comic strips

For cartoonist Ricardo Liniers Siri, better known as Liniers, making readers laugh with a comic strip is an essential part of his daily routine. With more than 17 years of experience illustrating comic strips, no one knows the ins and outs of this art form better than him.

His work has appeared in newspapers such as Página 12, La Nación, El País, covers for The New Yorker and King Features, album covers for musicians such as Andrés Calamaro, live shows with musician Kevin Johansen and illustrator Alberto Montt, as well as 30 books published in more than 17 countries. As recognition for his contributions to the world of comics, he won the Eisner Award (the "Illustrators' Oscar") and the Inkpot Award at the 2018 Comic-Con.

In this online course, Liniers shows you his creative process and how to find your own to start drawing comics on a daily basis. Learn to spark thoughts and smiles in your readers by making your own comic strip with original characters, from the idea to inking.

He has published more than 30 books in 17 countries around the world.

His work has also been displayed in countries such as Brazil, Peru, Spain, and the United States in the 2018 Society of Illustrators exhibit.
