The Hustle

#CreativeHustles is a series of free events for young people, aged 18 to 35 years, to engage with established creative industry professionals and arts practitioners. For the Graphic Novel Jam edition, we will be joined by 3 professionals from the comic world; writer/illustrator Nas Hoosen (Red Air, SECTOR), comic artist Sean Izaakse (Marvel’s THUNDERBOLTS, AVENGERS – yes, the real ones) and Illustrator Loyiso Mkize (KWEZI).

They will take us on a wild ride of exploration into the world of comic-making in a jampacked 1 day workshop. In this highly interactive and practical session, the participants will be walked through the basics of visual storytelling in comics – from writing to laying out a page. Participants will also have a chance to get their hands dirty and create a comic book of their own by pairing up with other members of the audience.
