Writing Vs. Art- Where do comics begin? Zine Dream Panel Discussion

August 9, 2014

3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Saturday, August 9, 2014


Held at Xpace Cultural Centre, 2-303 Lansdowne Ave
Please join us in celebrating the 7th Annual Zine Dream Small Press Fair, featuring a weekend long celebration of self-publishing! Xpace Cultural Centre is pleased to host a panel discussion with Kat Verhoeven, Jason Bradshaw, Patrick Kyle, and E Howey, moderated by Graham Sigurdson. Panel topic created by Georgia Webber.

There are as many ways to make comics as there are individuals, but can they be broken down to reflect a person’s motives to create meaning as a writer or an artist first? For some, a script must be crafted prior to layouts, thumbnails, drawings — for others, an idle drawing becomes a scene, a scene becomes a narrative, and the story unfolds before they realize where it’s going. Still others can’t create a comic without a clear and driving deeper purpose. Creators Kat Verhoeven, Jason Bradshaw, Patrick Kyle, and E Howey discuss the pieces of the puzzle necessary to complete a comic, and how their practices differ in shape, size, and intent.
