By the end of this workshop, you are officially #MadeInBenchLab and will know: 1) how to plan & visualise your comic strip, 2) the basic tools & the different mediums that can be used, 3) the purpose of a comic and what should be included in a comic strip and 4) the steps in drawing a comic strip.

BenchLab Talented Instructor: Nasihin of sihinkomik. You'll be learning from the master behind "Kampung Keris", the first local comic series on Webtoons! Nasihin has always been intrigued by comics and manga, which lead him to pick it up as a hobby from 2007. He started with basic media, just pens and papers, and took on digital illustration further on after he has discovered his drawing style. To further solidify his knowledge, he attended a manga demo and workshop in 2012 conducted by Tsuyoshi Ogawa and Hiroshi Kinoshita, experts from Kyoto International Manga Museum. Nasihin has been actively conducting workshops on his own to spread the love for comic drawing among his peers; he knows starting this dream is not easy but even so, it is not impossible. Aspiring comic authors of all levels are welcomed!
