Next month I'll be doing some comics making workshops! Firstly, I'll be at the Brighton Mini Maker Faire, the festival of making, creativity and invention at Brighton Corn Exchange on Saturday 5th September! Here I'll be doing scheduled workshops throughout the day, each lasting around an hour. I'll be talking about what makes a good 4-panel story/gag strip and getting visitors to make their very own! The results will be exhibited on this blog and/or on me Tumblr. All ages welcome! Although younger kids might need grown-up supervision. Do come down, as there'll be loads of great things going on including arts & crafts, robots and engineering, wood and metalwork, electronics, science, tech, music and more amazing do-it-yourself creation!
Following on from that, I will be hosting the Alligator's Comics Club on Thursday September 24th at the Alligator's Mouth children's bookshop in Richmond! This one kicks off at 4pm and is aimed at 7-12 yrs. Do RSVP the lovely people at Alligator's Mouth if you fancy coming as space may be limited! Again I'll be talking about how to make your own comics and also giving an insight into my working process...
And to finish the month off - not so much a workshop but a night of talks - there's the Brighton Digital Festival event Paper Versus Pixels. This one is all about comics and digital media with some great speakers lined up, including: Jade Sarson, David Lloyd, Nye Wright, Alex Fitch, Chloe Pursey and erm...me.
So yeah, do come say hello at either one, two or all three of these exciting comics happenings! September's gonna rock.
