Building a Comic Empire
"Et Tu Brutus!"
As part of the 2nd year project, I decided that we needed to raise the anti a bit and allow the students to experience the real life side of comics. After all there are suppose to be adults!
The plan was to get the student produce work which they felt passionate about and then in May go and sell it at the MCM Comic Con in London Docklands. To give the best possible experience in both work and education, I called on two stalwarts of the comic industry, John Charles and Kevin Gunstone to help out with the idea generation and the overall quality of the product being produced.
The cohort was split into 2 groups of 6 and they have set about producing the ideas, concept designs for their comics that they will be selling at in the Comic Alley at MCM in May. I'll try and keep you up to date with their progress and also give you the links to their blogs and artwork.
