From 24th to 27th June 2012, the Institut français was the host of the second edition of BD&Comics Passion festival, featuring extraordinary creators (Christophe Arleston and Jean-Louis Mourier, David B., Guy Delisle, Karrie Fransman, Tom Gauld, Pat Mills, Kevin O’Neill, Luke Pearson, Grzegorz Rosinski, Jonathan Ross aka Wossy), music (Mesparrow), performances (Freeeks Factory), films and the best booksellers (Gosh!, La Page, Cinebook). With nearly thirty events including live drawing, talks, exhibitions, workshops, a drawing jam with Mesparrow and a dress-up party, this innovative festival had something for everyone!
Culturethèque, in partnership with Le Cube and La Médiathèque, organized a workshop to promote the digital creation of comics on an iPad.
The workshop took place in the listed room of the French Institute's library.
Tony Tiratay, an expert in digital creation, taught the attendees how to create their own graphic novel on their iPad, from the drawing process to its printing.
We have the pleasure to share with you the results of this workshop!
The least we can say is that the “How to Draw on an iPad” workshop revealed fast-learners with great talents and abilities.
If you are a Comics addict too, have a look at our Comics section including 200 comics which are available for free!
We would like to warmly thank Tony Tiratay, who led the workshop and Le Cube, Centre for digital creation and for contributing to the festival with this digital event!
