MAKATI, PHILIPPINES—KOMIKET, the Filipino Komiks Market, will hold its 1st Comic Book Creator’s Workshop at Fully Booked BGC this June 2015. Open to students and professionals alike, the first batch of workshoppers will go through the komiks creation process from concept to finished work in four Sundays (June 7, 21, July 19, 26) from 2-5pm.

The lecturers are Komiket Organizers Tepai Pascual (Maktan 1521, Noodle Boy, Mark 9Verse47) and Paolo Herras (Alamat Ng Matibay, Strange Natives, Sumpa). The workshop includes insider tips on komiks production, publishing, and a survival guide to comics events and beyond. 

“One of the Komiket’s objectives is to grow the komiks community. And to do that, we must discover new creators, who in turn will also bring in new readers,” Paolo says. “Some writers want to learn how to get into komiks, and are looking for an artist to collaborate with. There are also artists looking for writers. We can help connect them through the workshop,” Tepai adds.

After the workshop, the newborn creators can launch their komiks at the October 3-4 Komiket in Centris Elements, and join the Komiket Awards, or the Student Competition. The Workshop fee is P2,500. For more information, like the Komiket page on Facebook or email [email protected] for inquiries.
