[Workshop] Writing Comics: A Practitioner’s Guide
On Sunday, July 6, Helter Skelter will host a three-hour-long workshop in Mumbai about writing for comics and graphic novels. Conducted by Jai Undurti, creator of Hyderabad: A Graphic Novel, the workshop will focus on reading and decoding comics, the mechanics of writing comic books, and picture languages in general, all from a practitioner’s point of view.
As part of the workshop, Jai will also show participants how to create your own superheroes: designing costumes and superpowers, discovering the arch nemesis, constructing a cover identity, and bringing to life the love interest.
Recreating the Vanished City
The workshop will be preceded by a short talk by Jai, during which he will take participants through the pages of Hyderabad: A Graphic Novel, and talk about the making of the book: working through interviews, descriptions, paintings, lithographs, and archival photographs, and recreating a city long vanished in the graphical medium.
You can also purchase signed copies of the book at the event.
