Adventures in Comics 2

Adventures in Comics 2
3–26 February 2012

Marine Studios, Margate, Kent CT9 1UJ
Join us for the launch on:
Friday 3rd February 2012, from 6–9pm

Guest speaker: Paul Gravett

This February Marine Studios will bring you an exhibition dedicated to contemporary comics. We will showcase work from some of the most interesting comics artists, writers and makers working today – celebrating comics, graphic novels and sequential narrative. A key part of the exhibition will feature entries to our 2-page-comic challenge responding to the theme ‘LIFE BOAT’.

In February 2011 Marine Studios launched the first Adventures in Comics which featured work from the London Print Studio’s exhibition ‘That’s Novel, Lifting Comics from the Page’ (part of the COMICA festival), as well as original work from a range of artists and makers including Catherine Anyango, Robert Poulter, Karrie Fransman and many others. We were able to combine local, national and international talent, providing a space where new and emerging artists could show work alongside industry professionals.

This year we return as an annual event. After being awarded Arts Council funding following the success of last year’s programme, in 2012 we have the opportunity to offer a number of one-day practical Inspiration / Perspiration workshops. With topics including: ‘Make a Comic in a Day Masterclass’, ‘Sequential Narrative’ and ‘Making it in Manga’, the workshops will provide hands-on experience for every level, whether new-comer or professional.
These workshops are idealy suited to students of graphics, illustration and creative writing. Each session is led by an experienced artist / writer / creator, promising to be a whole lot of fun. We have limited spaces available for each session but we hope that students, comics makers and enthusiasts will take advantage of this opportunity to gain real knowledge and practical experience. For session dates and times please visit www.adventuresincomics.org 

Comics are a hugely popular tool for promoting visual narratives and we hope to continue encouraging the local and wider community to engage with stories and ideas from all directions. If you’d like to find out more please do not hesitate to contact us.
