It was my dream to become a comic artist, but in march 2006 I left the Academy of Art (sector comic and illustration) I was attending!! It was not like I've imagined and teachers were totally incompetent!!
That's a shame. Doesn't matter though, you could still get there on your own if the opportunity arises. Courses don't really cater for comics here unless you want to pay loads of money, even then, they are only 2 weeks long. What's the point! It's best to get there on your own.
