Writer Ron Fortier and Artist Rob Davis will be guests at this year’s Oklahoma Writer’s Federation Conference to be held in Norman, Oklahoma May 2-4. Further details can be found at the organizations website.
Fortier and Davis will be presenting two 90 minute workshops on the creation of a graphic novel. The primary example of their presentation will be their own 108 pg. erotic horror graphic novel, DAUGHTER OF DRACULA published in 2007 by Davis’ Redbud Studio.
The team will be using a visual power-point slide show to illustrate the various technical aspects writing comics and the artist interpreting a script and bringing it to graphic life. Copies of the graphic novel will be on sale at the conference as well as this recently produced book version of the comic script.
“It seemed like a natural thing to do,” Fortier explains. “We thought writers having attended our workshops would benefit from not only having the graphic novel but the script from which it was derived as well. This way they could compare pages from the scrip to the completed art in the comic thus underscoring the points we will be making in our presentations.”
