The survival guide to creating comics, adapting them for the screen and staying sane

This webinar led by Tomasz Samojlik, scientist, writer and author of several graphic novels, will guide you through the dangerous and risky process of creating your own comic book (and, hopefully, adapting it for the small or big screen). It will begin with the very basics and touch upon every important milestone: the idea itself and its critical evaluation, the struggles with the story, the drawing and colouring phase, and the kind of powers you need to get through it, and then of course signing that multi-million-pound contract for the movie adaptation of your work. The webinar will be illustrated with examples from the author’s own works.

The spaces for the masterclasses, workshops, and panels are limited and require prior registration. If you would like to attend some of the workshops or masterclass please remember to add this session to your Meeting Mojo calendar, where you can also find the ZOOM link.

Tomasz Samojlik

Comic Book Writer, Illustrator, Poland

Tomasz is involved in two main areas of activity. By day, he is a scientist, a doctor of biological sciences, dealing with the natural history of the Białowieża Forest at the Mammal Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences. And at night, he writes and draws books and comics that combine fantastic plots with scientific knowledge in order to make the language of science more understandable to younger audiences (and to have fun at the same time). Tomasz is also an illustrator (he illustrated Wojciech Mikołuszko’s books, among others) and the author of scripts and art projects for the animated series about Pompik the bison and the full-length animation The Shrew of Destiny (production: EGoFILM, Warsaw). He also adapted the comic book of the same name into an audio book (as a radio play prepared and released by the Sound Tropez studio in 2015).
