EVENTS: TITAN-CON and Magnificient One Day Comic Book Factory!
Titan-Con begins tomorrow (and is featured in the Culture Night 2012 so is FREE on Friday) and runs for the weekend of 21st September until the 23rd September. It proves to be an action packed weekend, and this brilliant not-for-profit science fiction and fantasy literature, media and gaming convention in Belfast will feature a host of wonders.
As featured on the website the main event that will take the world by storm will be the Magnificient One Day Comic Book Factory – a description taken from http://titancon.com/2012/programme_media.php#programme is below:
The Magnificent One Day Comic Book Factory
Panel: Andy Luke, Patrick Brown and Paul J Holden
Time: 11.00 am (Castle Black), 11.30 am (Dragonpit)
Three local comic book creators challenge TitanCon members to write, draw and produce an exclusive convention comic book, with proceeds going to Action Cancer.
The workshop starts off with Andy Luke’s presentation on making quality comics quickly, self-publishing and creative property. Then everyone will come downstairs to a table in the back corner of the Exhibition Centre to get a page or two produced in an hour, with professionals Paddy Brown and PJ Holden on hand to offer advice and encouragement. When the clock stops, it’s pens down. Volunteers can assist Andy as he prints and binds to make a finished work over the following hours, and help out with the distribution of the comic book towards the end of the day.
Proceeds raised from sale of the work go to Action Cancer. Keep an eye on the TitanCon Facebook group and Andy-Luke.com in September for more details.
Other guests – and there are lots of great guests – include William Simpson, Peadar Ó Guilín, Ian McDonald, so make sure to check out the website for a full comprehensive list of the guests and the events taking place. – http://titancon.com/2012/guests.php
