The framework for the next two meetups is MINICOMICS! We'll be looking at creating short comics that encourage writers/artists to explore the medium and producing work in a short time without the sometimes constricting feeling of 'perfectionism'. In these two workshops, we will encourage instead 'experimentation' and 'getting something finished'.
In the first session we will be looking at ideas and concepts. We will be distributing examples of minicomics and other works by established creators - prepare to throw overboard your preconceptions of what comics can be, and embrace totally new ideas of narrative! Feel free to bring along minicomics that you have enjoyed or bought for some weird reason: we want to see them! In the session, we will discuss the sorts of ideas that the minicomic format encourages you to experiment with. Non-artists welcome! By the end of the session, all participants should have an outline for their minicomic, and an aim to create thumbnail page layouts for it ready for July's meetup!
In the second meetup, planned for July, we will hopefully develop some of these ideas into fully-fledged minicomics!
Note the new meetup venue - nearest Tube is Bond Street.
Don't worry if you can't make both sessions (or are unsure as yet) - we will still have an abundance of sketchbooks and comics creators!
