PK Comics: Cultivating Heroes

Howie Tsui draws inspiration from wuxia, a popular martial arts genre that emerged in China during the mid-20th century. The characters and narratives emphasize courage, honour, courtesy, justice, and a readiness to help the weak. In this art-making activity, we will use watercolour paint and ink to create a comic book cover to illustrate a hero based on people in our lives—or from our imagination!

Materials:

Paper (watercolour paper preferred)
Pencil
Watercolour paint
Black marker
Alternatively, crayons, pencil crayons, and markers can also be used
