Light the creativity on fire, heat up the comics summer FEVER!
What support the comics artists’ continuous works is their passion, their feverish passion. The unlimited desire for creation in their brains contributes to titles after titles of great stories that make readers themselves burn with passion too.
Under the theme “FEVER”, the project spreads the burning hot feverish passion of Hong Kong comic artists to inspire more like-minded souls. After the exchange programme’s first phase showcase in Angoulême International Comics Festival in France earlier this year, HKAC passes the flame of passion back to Hong Kong and heats up this summer of comics.
Kick-starting the second phase is the Comics Master Class tailored for up-and-coming comics artists. Instructed by local professionals in the comics industry, the course equips the participants with skills and techniques to create comics, igniting a fresh new blaze in Hong Kong comics.
The sharing session by Hong Kong comics artists and professionals brings you the stories of their earlier visit to the 47th Angoulême International Comics Festival.
Further fueling the feverish flame of passion, a series of exchange programmes – live drawing demonstrations, talks by comics professionals, comics publishing matching session, talk on intellectual property rights and licensing and more – will be held online and on-site in a 2-day event in December, providing the glowing Hong Kong comics artists with local and overseas publishing opportunities, spreading the passion of Hong Kong comics artists all around the world.
