3 Days to go...

until JYHS Library presents Comic Con II.

So with that in mind here are the guests who are joining us for the day and the workshops they'll be offering:

Sha Nazir 
Sha Nazir is Art Director & Publisher at BHP Comics and Festival Director at Glasgow Comic Con. He says, "Drawing comics keeps me sane and a bit crazy all at the same time. I collect odd action figures, read too much, love dodgy bronze age comic covers and watch Star Trek when no one is looking."

Intro to Comics. You will learn how Comic Books and Graphic Novels are created by doing creative writing and drawing exercises to set their imaginations free, test their creativity, and learn basic story structure. You develop and illustrate their own short story.



Clare Forrest

Illustration: A workshop in learning to illustrate -- how can art be used beyond comics, and what are different ways of doing illustration? You'll get to try out some new ideas.

Plus joining us a again for the panel is James McCulloch is a film blogger, musician, and comic book writer from central Scotland. He writes horror comics and plays bass in Bat Country Massacre.
