SCC Comic Workshops - Day 4 photos

The final 'Creating Comics' workshop at Swansea Museum was on Saturday. It was pretty nice weather outside and it was carnival day so we weren't expecting many visitors but we got loads again. And lots of returning faces who had more comic ideas they had to get out.

On the first day of the workshops we started a wall comic, one person at a time would write and draw a panel and the story would be added to by visitors and SCC members alike. By the end of the fourth day we had a tale that was forty panels long and three-quarters of the length of the room. Thanks to everyone that contributed, I'll post up the whole thing soon.

The wall comic.

SCC Assembled: Gary, Non, Captain SoK, Pete, Anna, Dan, Rob, Adam, Nathan, Lee-ving Legend

Thanks to the Swansea Museum staff and everyone who visited. Thanks also to all the SCC members who gave up their time to help out at the workshops.

It was a blast...

SCC Comic Workshops - Day 3 Sketches

Some of the SCC members sketches drawn from the Idea Machine on Wednesday 26th August at the Swansea Museum 'Creating Comics' workshops are shown below. The Idea machine is an intricate and specialised device designed by the top boffins of the SCC. It appears to the casual observer that a user is merely taking out a slip of paper from a series of cardboard boxes and using the contents of the slips to create a bizarre comic character. That's how it appears but we can assure you that the actual internal workings of this amazing machine are much more complex and astounding than that.

C'mon down and have a go yourself! Last workshop is Saturday August 29th, 11 am to 4pm at Swansea Museum. That's Swansea Museum itself, NOT the Waterfront, just Swansea Museum, the one with the mummy...
