My Life in Strips is an activity which shares stories through the medium of graphic novels. Specially designed workshops were delivered to students who learnt elements of story creation as well as turning their stories into a full comic book script. Participants experienced the full comic-making process first hand, and see their work published in a professional-standard comic book.
