Comics Workshop at State Library of Queensland!

On the January school holidays in 2013, I be taking 2 x 2 hour Comic Making workshops, thanks to the good people at the State Library of Queensland, as part of their annual Cartoon, Animation and Manga workshop series  :D The 2 week period also has my friend Paul Lalo of OzAnimate taking Animation classes too.

Re: my stint, from the SLQ website:

"Ever wanted to make your own comic book or graphic novel? Learn the language of visual storytelling in comics and develop the skills it takes to put together a comic book. Take your ideas from scribbles to panels on a comic page!
Workshops will be held on:
  • Tue 15 Jan, 2pm-4pm – for ages 12-16
  • Fri 18 Jan, 2pm-4pm – for ages 9-12
All materials are supplied. Comics workshop participants also take home a sketch pad, pencils and pencil case.
Workshop presenter: Paul Mason
