Comic books of the past are very much a huge part of modern pop culture, thanks to their integration to other forms of media like movies, TV, and good ol’ Netflix. From the characters and all their quirks, down to the costumes, plot lines, and dialogues—the art of it all has inspired many of today’s creative geniuses, and they, in turn, are inspiring future generations of artists.
If you’re among those aspiring to be a comic book wizard, the best way to kick off your 2018 is to check out the Marvel Creative Day Out, happening on January 10 at the School of Design & Arts Theater in De La Salle College Of St. Benilde.
Hang out with fellow Marvel enthusiasts and budding artists and be inspired by two important figures from the Marvel company, starting with artists Leinil Francis Yu and Harvey Francis Tolibao. These proudly Filipino talents are back to share more stories about their work in The Avengers, X-Men, and Iron Man series.
You can also get to show them your very own artworks and get straight up professional feedback.
Also joining the event is Marvel Comics editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski, who will be speaking about the Marvel Universe and where the future is headed for the brand. Joining him as well is Allen Au-Yeung, VP for Creative for Disney China, who will talk about the creative and design process of bringing your favorite Marvel superheroes to life.
Get first dibs, too, on some Marvel fashion and product designs, which will be showcased at the event for the first time.
The second Marvel Creative Day Out will be held at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde and will run from 9:30 A.M. to 5:30 P.M.
