NICOLAS YANN MARTIN
HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS ON COMIC ILLUSTRATION FOR ADULTS AND KIDS
Alliance Francaise is delighted to welcome Caledonian Illustrator Nicolas Martin for a series of workshops and presentations around his work of newspaper cartoonist, comic book creator and illustrator.
In France, we love comic books and we call them "Bandes Dessinées". We read them when we are 7 or 77 and we even have
festivals dedicated to them such as the Angoulême International Comics Festival.
