How do artists and writers create the worlds their characters and stories exist in?
Delivered by Jonathan Chandler and Joseph P Kelly, this workshop will introduce you to the creative process behind creating stories and world-building. Looking at the representation of ideas through symbols, signifiers and visual storytelling, this workshop will include idea generation, with a focus on using small ideas and starting points to build working, believable environments and situations with examples and reference from relevant comics, art and film. Through writing and drawing, you'll explore the representation of ideas through style, composition, visual clues and colour.

Participants will work with each other and as individuals to create or develop their ideas, incorporating the structure and clichés of traditional comics and storytelling, before developing their own unique take on narrative illustration – perhaps an entire story in one illustration, or a tale that unfolds over a twenty-panel comic page.
