Create comics as a form of activism and resistance with Bianca Xunise by incorporating personal anecdotes and interests.

Watch the video of the livestream below, and follow these steps to create your own soapbox comic.

For this workshop, you will need paper and something to draw with.

Key points for making comics as resistance:

1: What’s your platform? Choose something that you are passionate about. 

2: You should have a personal connection to your platform, but it doesn’t have to be direct. 

3: Personal stories help disarm your audience.

4: Know the facts.

How to make a three-panel soapbox comic:

Panel 1: Announce yourself.

Panel 2: What’s your soapbox? Take this opportunity to speak out.

Panel 3: Final thoughts.

We’d love to see your soapbox comic! Post it to social and tag @believermag and @biancaxunise. 

This workshop was supported in part by Zappos.
