We are so excited to announce the following workshop on September 22nd, facilitated by our Comics Creator Residency:
Monsters and Magic: a creature creation workshop with Lina Wu
In this free workshop, participants will explore their relationships with magical creatures to develop and use monsters as a tool for storytelling. A presentation on the artist’s personal process as well as inspiration and techniques will be followed by time for participants to create their own Monster File to take home. Materials and snacks will be provided.
Lina Wu is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Toronto. She is interested in using narrative and storytelling in her work to discuss themes like relationships, personal identity, growing up, and figuring out how to be soft and strong at the same time. She has worked for clients such as Acta Victoriana, OCAD SU, Nuance Magazine and Insomniac Film Festival. Her personal work has been shown at Xpace and Gallery 44 among others. She loves making comics and zines and is currently studying illustration at OCAD U.
