Thank you for your interest in the Trippe Academy for Digital Arts, where we give students a strong digital footing for their traditional art interests, which they may need in their future careers!

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN for the first ever Trippe Academy COMICS CAMP, meeting at the Jefferson Clubhouse from July 22nd – July 26th. Sign up below!

Comics Camp registration is now open to all 4rd-12th grade students from nearby school districts and homeschoolers with an interest in storytelling, comics, video games, film, or fashion design.

At Comics Camp 2019, we’ll be focusing on character design, story structure, visual pacing, composition, figure drawing, and color theory.


About the Educator

deanMy name is Dean Trippe. I’m a digital artist and educator with a BFA in Sequential Art from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I now teach digital arts lessons after school, here in my hometown of Jefferson, Georgia.

My most recent book was Something Terrible, a short, true comic book about surviving child abuse using comic book superheroes as a model for recovery. I am also a contributor to the Eisner Award-winning graphic anthology, Comic Book Tattoo, the creator of a superhero parody webcomic called Butterfly, the co-founder of Project: Rooftop, and illustrator of Power Lunch Vols. 1 & 2 kids’ graphic novels.
