Students of Myndlistaskólinn hard at work

The first NC Islands workshop was all about truth and lies, and how to use them to create interesting comics! First year students of Reykjavík School of Visual Arts spent the day telling stories about brave warriors, toilet mishaps in space and absurd tragedies about letting go of a loved one. An auspicious start for this spring’s tour!
