Comics Mastermind™ is delighted to be sponsoring the “Breaking into European Comics: How to Find Professional Work on the Continent” masterclass at the Australian Comic Arts Festival (ACAF) in Canberra, ACT in February. The masterclass will be presented by award-winning Italian graphic novelist Thomas Campi. A similar session presented last year in Sydney was sold out.
Thomas immigrated to Australia in 2014 on a Distinguished Talent Visa, and is the recipient of the Cognito Prize as Best Documentary Graphic Novel at the Belgium Book Fair. He also received the International Spectrum Fantastic Art 21 Gold Comic Award in 2014. His masterclass covers subject matter such as markets in Frances, Belgium and Spain; “Bande Dessinée” (Franco Belgium drawn strips); storytelling techniques and more.
Comics Mastermind will slowly unveil the rest of its masterclass program for the year, as speakers are booked in. These masterclasses will be held in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and some will also be available online.
