Gareth Hinds Graphic Novel Writer

Last Wednesday, Gareth Hinds payed the 7th and 8th graders of Team Sirius and Team Summit a visit. He talked to us about his life as a comic book artist, and his adventures along the way. He showed us the process that goes into making his graphic novels, and how long it takes. It starts with him making a detailed plan of what he is going to do which gives his publisher an idea of when it will be finished. Then, he goes on to design the layout and fit the dialogue to the pages. Mr. Hinds also talked to us about how his experiences in being a video game designer. He believes that everyone should make their own path and that just because he chose his path doesn't mean that everyone should do it that way. He does believe though, that we should chose a job because we enjoy doing it, not because it pays a lot.
