This from the MWF webby...
"The art of visual storytelling takes centre stage at this year's festival, as we feature some of the world's best illustrators and graphic novelists. Highlights include a graphic-novel newspaper distributed across Melbourne; Shaun Tan’s The Arrival in concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre; illustrators in residence at Fed Square’s Atrium; events on the politics and art of the drawn story; and a concert that combines live music and drawing."
A few weeks ago we spoke to Oslo about the Drawn from Life comic supported by the festival and will distributed for FREE during the festival. It looks great.
|Look for this to handed out at train stations and at MWF gigs during the festival.|
One of the highlights of the festival for me will the Martin Martini concert featuring live drawing to music and featuring TheComicSpot's own Jo Waite. After seeing Mr Martini and Bernard at Readings for the final What It Is where they mixed music and comics I know it'll be grand.
