School’s out so it’s time once again for the Summer Reading Challenge! 🙂 This year the theme is “mischief makers” (as in Dennis the menace and Beryl the Peril), so Teignmouth Library have asked me to run a couple of comics workshops to celebrate.
Pictures of today’s workshop are below and I’ll be back on 13th August to run a Rocket Comic Book making workshop. Looking forward to it!
I won’t be running very many workshops over the hols as i’m busy with other things, but here’s a list of very creative art activities for kids from the Book Trust called “Staring Into Space”. You can download them by clicking on the link below, have fun!!
I was very chuffed when Pram asked me to make an animation for a track from their new LP Across the Meridian. I took some pictures while making, so here they are below…
The whole process from a-z was great fun, even when everything fell over :), and it’s a brilliant track too.
Pram’s new album is out on Domino Records on 20th July and available for pre-order here
I had a blast making this animation for Shimmer and Disappear from Pram’s upcoming LP Across the Meridian 🙂 Will post “making of” pics soon.
I’ve got fourteen keen-as-mustard comic artists this term, and they are already coming up with some wonderful ideas, including a graphic novel and a very exciting joint project featuring a story told from three different points of view. This is a degree of sophistication I came across in works of authors and filmmakers only when I went to university, so I was a bit blown away when they announced what they were going to do. In fairness all three are super-creative, bright kids – am very excited to see how this works out.
