Comic book fans and amateur artists can get expert advice and inspiration at a special workshop at Newcastle City Library this weekend.
Following the success of last year’s Mini-Comics at the Canny Comic Con, the City Library is running another Mini-Comics making workshop on Saturday, 21 April.
This free drop-in session from 1pm to 5pm is open to all, regardless of age and comic making experience so come along and give it a try.
It doesn’t have to be about superheroes as Mini-Comics can be about any subject you like including an illustrated diary, reviews of local events, poems, jokes, and adventure stories.
Local comic creators Paul Thompson and Ingi Jensson will be leading a Comic Wisdom presentation before the workshops from 11.45am and 1pm.
These will be about comics, visual story telling and styles and are called ‘Comics: Words + Pictures where Space = Time’ and ‘Embracing our own originality, the dangers involved’.
Janice Hall, Newcastle Libraries Manager, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for amateur artists and comic book writers to develop their skills and show off their creativity. All you need to do is come along to the Mini Comics workshop and let your imagination take over.”
Paul Thompson and Ingi Jensson presentations are free but pre-booking with the library is essential as spaces are limited so book your place by phoning 0191 277 4100 or email email@example.com.
