Well established author/illustrator Ken Streacy, best known for his work on The Original Astro Boy, DC Comics, and Marvel Comics is here to teach you the importance of visual storytelling!

An understanding of visual storytelling, a language created by the collision words and pictures, is of great importance to anyone interested in making comic books, graphic novels, illustrated books, animation, film, gaming, and advertising.

This demonstration will introduce students to the tools and techniques required to tell the stories only you can tell, then build an audience both in print and online.

Space is limited and registration is required.

Ken Steacy decided at age eleven to become a professional comic book author/illustrator, a dream he realized in 1974. Since then, he has worked in the industry as writer, artist, art director, editor, and publisher, chronicling the exploits of Astro Boy, Spider-Man, Harry Potter, and the Star Wars gang, to name but a few. In addition to creating his own intellectual property, he has also collaborated with other writers, including Douglas Coupland, Harlan Ellison, and Trina Robbins.

He is the recipient of an Eisner and an Inkpot award, and in 2009 was inducted into the Canadian Comic Book Hall of Fame, a lifetime achievement award for contributions to the industry. He currently teaches Comics & Graphic Novels at Camosun College in Victoria BC, a visual storytelling program he co-created with his wife, author/illustrator Joan Steacy.
