Comic Book Workshop Day 1

Facilitators: Mitchell Gatsi and Mr. Steven Tangi

Tafy Tang Arts (Mitchell), as the comic book workshop facilitator, will be equipping aspiring artists with an in-depth guide to charting and creating a successful illustrated story. While Mr. Steven Tangi will help them to formulate Stories for comics. Mitchell Gatsi, as the comic book workshop facilitator, will be equipping aspiring artists with an in-depth guide to charting and creating a successful illustrated story. Mitchell Gatsi, is an upcoming illustrator, and visual artist. Since he was a little boy, he have taken drawing as an everyday activity with inspiration from other artists that he would find in art magazines, from comic books and envisioned one day to venture into any kind of work that requires drawing skills. He studied visual arts at the College of the Arts and Crafts (Katutura) and now he’s a Namibian Visual Arts and Craft graduate. During his time at the college he got involved in few comic workshop and the one that stands out from the rest was the Speech Bubble workshop that was held during the first Namibia Book Fair in 2012. After his three years at the college he decided to become a freelance artist in the line of comic illustrating and today he illustrates stories for public and private writers. In my own words I describe works of illustrations as a tool that drive words to create the story into visual images which helps the reader to better understand the actions and emotions within the story. 

Mr. Steven Tangi is a creative writer specializing in the media industry. He started writing for advertising campaigns from the year 2012 as a freelancer and currently runs Blue Tornado Investments CC, a small media company working on its first media projects including print and film projects. It is the second time Mr. Tangi facilitates this workshop and he is very excited to once again be invited on-board this venture. During this workshop he hopes to pass on valuable life-long skills to the participants of the workshop to help them enhance their writing capabilities. With these workshops, Steven aims to help birth a new generation of great Namibian Writers
