Acclaimed graphic novelists Metaphrog will be giving a free workshop in the Library on Tuesday 8 March 2011, 4 - 6 pm. They will be talking about their work and creative process, including character design and story-telling. Learn how to create your own character and develop it into a short story for a mini-comic.
Franco-Scottish artists Metaphrog (a.k.a Sandra Marrs and John Chalmers) have been creating comics, graphic novels and illustrations together since 1996. They are the authors of the critically acclaimed Louis series of graphic novels, and have been nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Graphic Album and an Ignatz Award for Best New Talent. Their comic adaptation of Edwin Morgan’s poem The First Men on Mercury was released on National Poetry Day in 2009 and was distributed to every Glasgow secondary school pupil.They regularly tour to schools, universities and libraries to explain their creative processes and story-telling.
