* Ben Hutchings is a cartoonist and illustrator. His comic Iron Bard Ballisto! was featured on DC Comics’ webcomic series Zuda. He is working on a kid’s graphic novel titled Mini Mel and Timid Tim.
The last few weeks I have been focusing on perspective and foreshortening with my classes, here are some Alex Ross inspired foreshortening exercises we did.
I will be teaching a short course introducing students to the process of creating a graphic novel at the Centre for Adult Education in Melbourne.
6 -9pm 6th, 13th, 2oth, and 27th November.
I am one of the successful recipients of a fellowship from The Australian Prime Ministers’ Centre at the Museum of Australian Democracy – Old Parliament House (pictured above). They will support me in the research and drafting of my graphic novel (see previous posts tagged “Enid Lyons” for details). I will present my script and page roughs at a seminar in July next year.
Pictured below is how the Museum of Australian Democracy looked during Dame Enid Lyons’ time there, when it functioned as our federal parliament.
Last week I ran my first class at Laneway Learning, “Make a Mini-Comic”.
It was a sellout class!
I highly recommend checking out the Laneway Learning program
I am talking about the Enid book at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival on 10.30am Saturday 21st August at the NGV (Fed Square).
“What does it take to make a graphic novel? Graphic novelists Bruce Mutard, Sarah Howell and Mirranda Burton share their works in progress and show how they research, write, draw and design a finished book. Go behind the scenes to discover how scenes are made.”
There are some great comic-related events programmed for 24th August, including international speakers, so come on down to the NGV!
