Sydney - Graphic Festival

Post by TheSweetestThing on Sun Jul 18, 2010 4:48 am

Figured as this was purely comic book love, its best placed here;

www.sydneyoperahouse.com/graphic

Check it out if you like comics.

Here's the blurb from the Overview section of the site.

Comic books, illustration, animation, music, multimedia and other new ways of telling stories have not only changed the face of our popular culture, they now define it.

Graphic novels and comic art are now a leading source of inspiration for films, television, clothing, designers, musicians and artists the world over.

GRAPHIC celebrates this brave new world in a weekend of specially commissioned productions – with musical responses to graphic art & stories, workshops, panels, a film program, a games exhibition and an animation competition.

Please look through all the events on offer so far, and come back soon, as there are even more GRAPHIC events to be announced. But hurry to book those events that are already on sale, as numbers are strictly limited, and with superstars like Neil Gaiman, Kevin Smith and Gary Groth appearing, they are sure to be popular!

Other highlight events include the Anime classic Akira with a live rescore by Regurgitator; Shaun Tan’s The Arrival live scored by Ben Walsh and the Orkestra of the Underground; and the big one – Neil Gaiman in the Concert Hall reading a new unpublished work, with specially commissioned live score by FourPlay and projected illustrations by legendary graphic artist Eddie Campbell.

There’s never been a weekend like this before at Sydney Opera House, or anywhere else in Australia. Be part of a unique celebration of culture at it’s coolest, when GRAPHIC takes over this town for two days only.

Should be awesome

I'm hoping to use work contacts (I love working in the arts) to see if I can score a freebie to the Gaiman/Campbell session.

Are there any good toy stores worth checking out in the city while I'm there?
