Angoulême International Comics Festival exchange sharing by Hong Kong comics practitioners, let’s feel the feverish heat diverging from European and Hong Kong creative minds!
In January this year, Hong Kong comics artists Kwong-shing Lau, Chi-tak Li and Yanai were arranged by Hong Kong Arts Centre under the sponsorship of Create Hong Kong (CreateHK) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to participate in the Angoulême International Comics Festival in France, launching their respective new French edition comics and meeting the readers from the other side of the globe. Joined together was an emerging comics artist Bonnie Pang, who was sponsored by CreateHK to not only grasp the chance to admire the original works from comics masters from Europe, the United State and Japan at the festival, but also took part in the Pavillon Jeunes Talents, the young comics talent open-call in the festival, striving for opportunities to publish her comics. In addition, representatives of Hong Kong comics professionals also took this opportunity to communicate with publishing houses, booksellers and online platforms from all around the world at the festival, learning creative ideas, book designs, publishing concepts and others from each other.
In the talk, our Hong Kong comics practitioners will share their exciting and challenging adventures during the journey in the festival. And, what kind of new inspirations will be boiled up by the comics practitioners from this wave of FEVER?
