ComicFest 2022: From commission to finished project with Giselle Clarkson

Giselle's comic self-portrait

Now that the dust has settled on ComicFest 2022, we can settle back and reflect on what was a fabulous, immersive and truly memorable online celebration of all thing’s comics in New Zealand. What a blast the day was!

If you missed any of the day, or indeed just want to enjoy watching something again, have no fear! We have seven of the segments from the day available to re-watch at any time you wish, simply follow this link to our YouTube playlist.

Now we have a very special workshop, From commission to finished project, with the fabulous, incredibly talented graphic illustrator Giselle Clarkson. All is revealed in this workshop from one of the most accomplished figures in the New Zealand / Aotearoa scene, in short gold dust for anyone interested in taking their work that one step further from one of the most acclaimed artists in the field. It is also incidentally wonderfully entertaining and funny and fun.

Giselle Clarkson is a freelance illustrator and comic artist based near Wellington. Her science illustrations and comics can be found in all sorts of places; from bumper stickers and t-shirts to Auckland Zoo and the NZ School Journal. She publishes a regular comic about children’s books online at The Sapling. Her recently illustrated books for children include The Gobbledegook Book: A Joy Cowley Anthology and Egg and Spoon: An Illustrated Cookbook (Gecko Press).
