    […] comic center in Brussels was similar to this as well. Comics are cool and it was presented in a way that drew me in a way […]

    […] Belgien Tourismus arranged for us to have a private lesson on drawing comics. Now, I can’t draw to save my life, so even with the step-by-step instructions on how to make a character look like he was walking, I was still struggling. Andy, on the other hand, was like a kid in a candy shop. This was his favorite part of our weekend, and he even won a book for having the best drawing in our group. You can read about his thoughts (and see his winning drawing) on the Comics Center here. […]

      Wow, I really enjoyed Brussels. It is a bit like Paris, but so much nicer. And yes, the comic center was great.

    We did the museum when we were in Brussels, but SUPER disappointed that we never did the workshop!

    Ah, and I LOVE the smurfs!

      The workshop was a special thing. The Brussels tourism arranged it for our group. Although he did mention that he does the workshops for other groups, so maybe there is a public way of signing up too. It was a lot of fun, despite the heat.

    Really fun! I grew up reading every single Tintin and Asterix & Obelix comic book out there, so I have a special affection for these comics. Back in the US, hardly anyone I knew had even HEARD of them, so it’s always fun to see other people enjoying them (even if you have to go to Belgium to do so!) Also, that’s awesome about winning a drawing competition!

      Asterix and Obelix I had head of, but only from being in Germany as a teenager as well.
      The “competition” was an informal thing amongst just our little group, but still it felt good to be recognized. There was a Tintin movie recently as well, which is reigniting interest for the character in Europe as well.

    I got really curious about the guy in the red mask, thinking it was the Scarlet Pimpernel. Turns out this is the “Masquerouge”, from a French comic book originally published in Pif Gadget.

      That is awesome. Thanks for the research. I was thinking Scarlet Pimpernel too, but even that I know mainly from a Daffy Duck parody.
