Comics Wisdom at Mini Comic Making in Newcastle

Here's Paul's and Ingi's presentations at the Comics Wisdom event.

Paul Thompson
Comics: words + pictures where space = time

... ... Local comics guru Paul Thompson leads you through a journey of how comics convey a story. With his wit and boundless enthusiasm he answers why comics are different to film and prose, where this is good and where it's not. Why comics are the most accessible medium for conveying complex ideas quickly (flight safety instructions are comics).
And it's about how the words and pictures interact, how space equals time and why backgrounds are drawn realistic and foregrounds minimally.
Contains great ideas for anyone who reads or creates comics.

Ingi Jensson
Embracing our own originality and the dangers involved!!

Join Iceland’s coolest cartoonist, Ingi Jennson and hear his harrowing tale of how he burned-up, rose out of the ashes, found his mojo, uncovered his personal style in the process via mystical ways. But first and foremost; what he learned from his journey to the edge and back.
Ingi will talk about his development as a comic maker, looking back at 14 years of drawing for a living, from Holland to Iceland to Holland to England.

Spaces for these are limited so book with Newcastle City Library (0191 277 4100) to make sure you're there.
