I went to Mr. Bernard Caleo's
"Comic drawing and storytelling workshop"
at City Library yesterday.
Mr. Bernard Caleo is a Melbourne-based Australian comic artist.
He is an comic editor and performer as well.
It was a free event ran by the City of Melbourne.
I found out about this workshop
through an email from the international students organization.
They said in the email that
and "lucky 30 students"
I am interested in learning the storytelling techniques using pictures.
I quickly applied.
That's how I became one of those lucky 30 students.
It wasn't just about how to draw pictures.
Rather, it was about how to tell a story using pictures.
You can tell a story sometimes without a word.
It was amazing to see how we could all tell a story
You know how most of the comics have pages and pages to tell a story?
But sometimes you don't need so many pages.
Just like Peanuts (Snoopy) comics,
4 square boxes on a single paper can be enough for you to tell a story.
