Discover and build the worlds inside of you in this workshop hosted by Tillie Walden. You can pick up a copy of Tillie’s upcoming collection Alone in Space from our friends at Bookshop, where proceeds will help benefit The Believer and independent bookstores.
For this workshop, you will need paper, something to draw with, and something to color with if you’d like. Watch the video of the live stream below, and follow the steps to build your own world.
To start, consult Tillie’s beliefs on world-duilding:
Sketch out four panels to begin your comic. You should take around five minutes to complete each panel.
Each panel should focus on different aspects of a single world. This world only exists in one place and that is inside of you. Imagine a place that only you have a key to. It is a place that is entirely shaped by who you are and what you feel. You can be as abstract or as realistic as you can but try not to draw any people.
If you’re not sure where to start or if that’s overwhelming, you can try two different cheats:
Cheat 1: draw the four angles of your bedroom
Cheat 2: Copy what Tillie is drawing!
