Editing Comics: The Uneditable Art? Workshop with Bernard Caleo.
Inedible yes, but uneditable no. The editor of the Tango romance comics anthology will lead this workshop which will examine principles of editing comics and will include practical work on editing existing comics pages. Editing is the often-missing element in the production of comics and graphic novels, and this workshop will include pointers about editing your own work.
Bernard Caleo has been writing, drawing and publishing comics since 1990. He has edited and published Tango, the giant Australian romance comics anthology, since 1997. cardigancomics.com
Bernard Caleo is a comic book communicator. He makes comics, publishes comics, teaches about comics and preaches about comics. He published the romance comics anthology Tango from 1997 to 2009. With filmmaker Daniel Hayward, he made the feature documentary Graphic Novels! Melbourne! in 2012, and they have presented the film in Australia, Europe and the USA.
The graphic novel is a form that still attracts more than its share of stigma and snobbery, but its audiences are evangelical, its writers inspired and its sales enviable. And some of the most exciting developments in the form are coming out of Melbourne. With panel discussions, workshops and talks, and the help of some of the leading artists and writers in the field (including Bernard Caleo, Queenie Chan, W. Chew Chan, Oslo Davis, George Dunford, Nicki Greenberg, Bruce Mutard, Shaun Tan, Andrew Weldon and others) the Wheeler Centre is going to colour in the picture. Come and celebrate or discover the adult comic in all its forms.
Friday 23rd April to Sunday 25th April at the Wheeler Centre
