Comics were once a primary source of entertainment in Sri Lanka. However, by the 90’s, the popularity of comics dwindled. Despite the lack of a proper industry, comics survived! There were a lot of underground indie creators trying their hand at comics, and Papadamn is one of them.
Over the last two years, we became successful in getting over 100,000 followers collectively on our social media, and have been growing since. We plan to use the knowledge and experience we gathered over this time to help upcoming local comic artists as well.
Being a comic artist in a country with no industry is tough. Our journey was not smooth sailing, and we always felt as if there were certain things we wish we knew. We want to smoothen this learning curve and help fellow artists out. This is why we have Papadamn Learn, a Facebook tutorial page and a blog, to share our knowledge.
