2-Day Workshop: HORT – Comic Book Publication


Over the course of 2 days, Eike König of HORT introduced his group to the importance of narrative.
Each participant was invited to share a memory or distinct story from their past. Once each memory was shared, the story had to be recreated visually by hand. These visuals then became the base content for a storyboard, which each participant then developed into their own personal comic strip.

Each comic strip was then scanned and brought together to form one continuous narrative within a 40 page publication, to be Riso printed by Workhorse Press. Each participant took away a collection of personal stories, including their own, from the group in a limited edition Risograph printed comic book publication.
