There are many ways of telling stories, and award -winning cartoonist Sonny Liew offers some thoughts on how our choices matter in constructing narratives in the unique medium of comics, whether in terms of breaking down a script or planning your own super epic graphic novel.

About the Artist
Sonny Liew 's The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye became the first graphic novel to win the Singapore Literature Prize in 2016, and the Eisner-nominated comic artist has also worked on titles for DC Comics, DC Vertigo, Marvel, First Second Books, SLG and Disney Press. Born in Malaysia, he lives and works in Singapore

Illustration Arts Fest (IAF) is Singapore’s first indie illustration-centric festival! As part of the 10th anniversary of the Organisation of Illustrators Council (OIC Singapore), the Council is teaming up with Singapore Writers Festival (SWF), LASALLE College of the Arts; and East London Comics Arts Festival (ELCAF) and Nobrow Press to present the inaugural IAF, celebrating illustrators and illustration in Asia.

The IAF is focused on originally created content and narratives by independent illustrators who work in styles and art forms which are not commonly seen in Asia. This is distinguished from the more prevalent trend of superheroes, manga and anime themes. The event is supported by players from the Singapore creative community such as Kinetic, Supermama, H55, Underscore, Design Film Festival and Goodstuph.
