Multiple award nominee and acclaimed graphic novelist duo, Metaphrog, will be hosting a creative session on how to create your own graphic novel on January the 27th.

The workshop will be held at Aberdeen City Libraries, and is just one of many interactive creative workshops the duo have held.

David Main from Aberdeen city Libraries has said, “The session is for everyone, but we are obviously hoping it will attract people who may not normally come to other types of events – particularly young people for example”

This will be one of many creative workshops that Aberdeen libraries have held. David Main has said, “Libraries are here to stimulate creativity and not just in the perceived “standard” art forms of prose and poetry”

The duo, Sandra Marrs and John Chalmers, have been creating comics since 1996. Together they have been nominated for many prestigious awards, including 3 Eisner awards.

Following the success of “The Red Shoes and Other Tales”, their latest work “The Little Mermaid” will be published in April 2017 by Papercutz.

The workshop will be held on January the 23rd, and is part of the libraries creative arts project ‘Reflections’, which aims to explore what the concept of history means to an individual.

The project is also a celebration of the 125 years that the library has been open at the Rosemount Viaduct.

People are invited to submit an original piece of art work that shows what history means to them. A selection of the submissions will then be exhibited during the local history conference on Saturday 4th of March this year.
