FANS of the popular American series ‘Heroes’ will definitely recognise the vivid graphic novel drawings featured throughout the drama and the role it played in telling the story to the audience.
It was these drawings that increased the graphic appeal of ‘Heroes’ to its fans and many hopeful artists who were inspired and enthused by the works of the creative team behind these graphic novels.
Steven Lejeune, one of the talents that created these dramatic art pieces, is once again collaborating with Limkokwing Borneo to bring this form of artwork to aspiring artists by way of a workshop that will be held in the Kuching campus on Jan 15.
“The creation of graphic novels is a relatively new area of art, and it was something that I decided to dedicate my life to after I participated in a workshop held by a famous French cartoonist in France,” said Lejeune.
He noted that while many youths were familiar with graphic novels or manga, very few know about the actual work that went into the production of these novels.
“Through this workshop, I hope to introduce the participants to the behind-the-scenes work of creating a graphic novel, and be able to reach out to the aspiring young artists to delve further into developing more works of art of this genre,” he said.
Participants will be introduced to scriptwriting as well as the visual composition of a storyboard, and will learn how to arrange the various scenes into a storyboard before finally fitting it into a completed set up.
