This week we thought we’d give you something a bit more artistic. Early on in the creation of Hibanacon we had several questions on our Twitter and Facebook as to if there would be space for artists and independent creators at Hibanacon. Well, we had some applications for space with our other dealers and we were delighted to give some of it over to those who wanted to showcase their own work.
For those of you unaware Sweatdrop are definitely among the more well known UK comic circles. Their members don’t just write and draw comics but they also offer tutorials, other members to collaborate with, bespoke illustrations, and more. They’ve been going since about 2001 and have published comics across a really wide range of genres.
At Hibanacon they’ll be present in the dealers’ room all Saturday but on top of that will also be offering some panels that we’ve recently added to our What’s On page:
Character Drawing Workshop: Join artists from Sweatdrop Studios for a fun, informal session that will introduce you to creating and developing your own characters! In this workshop, you will learn aspects of character design and development, such as facial expressions, poses, and more. Suitable for all levels.
Comic Jam: This will be a chilled-out comicking and drawing drop-in session - you can bring your own comics or comic ideas to work on, try out the scripts and layouts provided, or just come along and chat over the various options for making comics and getting them out there.
So if you’re at Hibanacon and looking for something that little bit different then please do check them out.
