Dylan Horrocks talks about the terror of the blank page, and how we all fear being criticised.
A drop of ink contains such potential. One of the essential base materials of so many art forms, it can be both bold and delicate. It can take the form of written word, illustration or tatau. And with its assistance, worlds can be created, tall tales spun, and personal history laid bare.
Who better to talk to the topic of ink then a master of the medium?
Author and illustrator Dylan Horrocks is one of the most original and authoritative voices on the New Zealand comic scene. On the last Friday of March 2015 we gathered at Studio One Toi Tū to dip our quills into the topic of Ink. Or the lack of Ink… Dylan talked about the terror of the blank page, the pressures of morality and how we all fear being criticised.
