NERDVANA Making Comics (for fun and profit)

NERDVANA Making Comics (for fun and profit)

Do you dream of writing or drawing comics but don't know where to start? Or maybe you're already halfway through that epic graphic novel? Whatever your level of experience or skill (from "Master Artist" to "I can't draw"), if you want to make comics this workshop is for you! We'll look at what's involved in telling stories with pictures and help you unlock your own unique cartooning voice. Bring some paper and pencils (or else pens, crayons, iPad, etc) and a willingness to have a go.

Dylan Horrocks has been writing and drawing comics, graphic novels, cartoons, and prose fiction for more than 30 years, including Hicksville, Sam Zabel & the Magic Pen, Batgirl, and Hunter: the Age of Magic. His work has been published around the world in various languages and won the Eisner Award and the Sir Julius Vogel award, among others. He currently lives in Wellington, where he teaches comics and visual narrative at the Victoria University of Wellington School of Design Innovation and is drawing a graphic novel about fantasy role-playing games.
