Earlier this month I was invited to take part in a story-making workshop and lunchtime artist residency as part of Little Green Pig's Little Green Pop Up at No Walls Gallery. Little Green Pig is a Brighton based charity offering children and young people free writing workshops. They believe this vital form of self-expression builds confidence, communication and social skills. Pretty cool, right?
In the morning I was on hand to illustrate ideas thought up by clever young writers during a story-making workshop led by writer Laura Wilkinson. Some pretty crazy stuff came out of this, my particular favourite being Victorians regressing into cave people.
Afterwards I was asked to carry on a story started earlier in the week as part of a series of lunchtime writer and artist residencies. For this last bit I created the comic strip you see above! I also got to chat to people as they entered the gallery and sit under a sign saying "Creative Genius"....nice. All in all an amazing day, and just to say thanks to Ella, Laura, Natalie, Julie, Catherine, Peter and everyone at Little Green Pig!
