Hannah Myers stayed with us and on two fantastic Comic Jams. Whats a Comic Jam, I hear you ask? Well it’s a gathering of comic artists (and comic fanatics) drawing stories together to create one of a kind comics. How does it work? Each participant starts with a blank sheet of paper and draws the first panel of a comic. Once they’re done they pass it to the next artist artist who draws the next panel and so on. It’s an exercise in creativity and it’s a great chance to get creative while being social. Drawing comics can be isolating for a lot of artists, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! Hannah will be facilitating the art making and the conversation, markers and paper will be provided but please feel free to bring your favourite drawing tools.
