Nordicomics Youth! Camp: Wednesday was all about panels!

Written by Karri Lehtonen on . Posted in NC Youth BLOG

Wednesday72

So Wednesday came, and it was Karri Laitinen’s last teaching day! He gave us a lecture about page and panel design, backgrounds, perspective and many, many other things! So the morning was filled with intensity and hard work! A massive storm also woke us in the middle of the night. Luukki was without electricity for some time and the fire alarm kept screaming loudly!

Today we also did a “broken fax machine” exercice and Karri Lehtonen was teaching the basics of the storytelling in improvisation. We had a good grill session again and now the storm is rising once more! Hope we can keep our electricity!

Tomorrow Anni Nykänen will come here, we are very exited already!

Today’s artists:
Yrtti Taivaloja / Finland
Johanne Bergill / Norway

Towards Thursday and beyond!
