My Story/Our Story: Making Comics Alone And Together

28 March 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Part of a series of three workshops under ‘A Weekend of Comics and Illustration’.

Making comics can be a solo or group effort, depending on your preference and artistic process. This workshop will provide insight on both methods of working, as well as some hands-on comic making activities to explore the creative opportunities unlocked with each method.

In the workshop, participants will learn:

  • How to navigate the process of making comics alone and in a team
  • The advantages and challenges of working alone and in a team
  • The types of stories that work best for each approach
  • How to effectively navigate the creative process of different collaborators
  • Ways to tease out the interplay of images and text in comics and how to find your role in a collaboration
  • Tips on how to find collaborators

Date and Time: 2pm-5pm, Mar 28th

Lead facilitator:

Max Loh is an as-and-when comic artist who flits between Malaysia and Singapore. He enjoys whittling at complex issues with words and images, stringing them together with emotions. While on his journey to find the ideal middle ground of practicality and passion, he’ll gladly stuff his face with all the food he can get his hands on.

He’s the co-author of graphic novel, We’ll Eat When We’re Done, and his work has been published by Image, Maple Comics, New Naratif, and The Nib. He has spent more than a decade creating self-published zines, organizing and giving talks and workshops, and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
