Learn scriptwriting, page layouts, lettering, cover designs, and more, alongside scan’s of Dave’s original art and rarely seen workings to illustrate his personal creative processes. How Comics Work is your chance to gain insight to Dave Gibbons’ s work, from his computer colouring and 3D modelling with Angus McKie on Give Me Liberty, to his work on The Originals using digital greytones. You’ll learn how he layers text for editing, creates effects such as flares and neon glows, and prepares artwork for print and online.

He is most famous for his collaborations with Alan Moore, including Watchmen, and was last year named Britain’s first Comics Laureate. All of the examples are scanned from original artwork, sketches, and preparatory designs, many of which have never been published before.

Tim initially started as an assistant editor at DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint and he has written comics for the BBC, DeAgostini, Weldon Owen, and the Young Telegraph.
