In my Comic Art Masterclasses, I teach kids how easy and fun it is to draw comic strips. I encourage them to copy from comics, which I scatter around the table (as well as showing them many other ways of learning to draw). It's always a treat when they choose to copy or be inspired by my drawings and, for the last few weeks, they've had the chance to look at my newly published Hot Rod Cow. It seems to be popular, with kids drawing him as often as they draw the other most popular choices, Harry Hill out of The Dandy and random manga faces. Here are some of their efforts (by year 5 & 6 pupils). Click to enlarge.
