DAY 1: ART EXHIBITION LAUNCH: Storytelling with a Stylus: Digital Comics Art

50+ creators from across Australia

Organised as part of the wider Papercuts Comics Festival, Storytelling with a Stylus surveys the work of 50+ Australasian comic book artists who draw their pages primarily or entirely digitally.

From beloved classics such as The Phantom to your new favourite characters, this exhibition samples a wide variety of styles and genres in the vibrant medium of comics! Take a closer look at the art of creators from all across Australia—and beyond—who have embraced digital software such as Photoshop, Clip Studio and Procreate.

These pages come from traditional comic books, internationally published graphic novels, webcomics and limited edition zines. Nearly all the artwork will be available to purchase as limited edition archival digital prints, framed or unframed, printed on acid-free, pH neutral 300gsm 100% American organic cotton stock milled in Germany, thanks to Campus Color.

Roy Ananda will deliver opening remarks at 6:30pm during the launch event.
