Of all the talks over the weekend, I resonated most with Sue Murphy’s talk at OFFSET 2015.

Tomi Ungerer’s interview with Steve Simpson at OFFSET 2015 was very different from all of the other talks of the weekend. Tomi was very popular with the audience as he talked about a variety of things from growing up in Nazi occupied France to illustrating political satire.
Without knowing too much about the comic and graphic novel industries, I was really interest in Declan Shalvey’s talk at OFFSET 2015. Declan showed a lot of his extremely detailed illustrations and processes from conception to final rendering for comic books and graphic novels.
