Comics Masterclass Launches 2015 Short Course Program

Comics Masterclass™ is delighted to launch its 2015 short courses program, starting with a workshop on "Breaking into European Comics: How to Find Professional Work on the Continent", which will be presented by award-winning Italian graphic novelist Thomas Campi who recently immigrated to Australia on a Distinguished Talent Visa supported by the Australian Society of Authors.

Thomas is the recipient of the Cognito Prize as Best Documentary Graphic Novel at the Belgium Book Fair, and also received the International Spectrum Fantastic Art 21 Gold Comic Award in 2014. 

His two-hour workshop will be held in Sydney in February and in February and in Canberra in March 2015. It will cover subject matter such as markets in Frances, Belgium and Spain; “Bande Dessinée” (Franco Belgium drawn strips); storytelling techniques and more.

Comics Masterclass is planning an exciting lineup of other workshops during the year with coverage in other States and Territories, as well several online workshops to encourage Australia-wide participation and introduce innovative ideas and creative techniques to a growing community of comikers.
