I recently conducted a comic workshop under the aegis of the Indian Comic Con, around the end of January,
and had a few mentions in the city’s newspapers – Bengal Post and Hindustan Times.
I’m adding the snippets below.
The latter paper’s article focussed more on my comic work and career so far in that domain rather than the workshop itself, but its sensational headline has pricked up many a reader’s ear. ( yeah, yeah, okay, so this metaphor doesn’t work that nicely – i should’ve thought about something to do with eyes and not ears, right? darn! )
What I mean is – a cursory look at the headline, without first wading into the article, could easily give the speculative reader the idea that I’m a penniless artist who has somehow procured for himself a rather dashing suit. Right? 🙂
