"Renowned comic-strip artist" - Lancashire Telegraph

This is why we need to preserve our local papers* - so I can be in them.

The renowned comic-strip artist, writer, producer and comedian took his touring Comic Art Masterclass to the Blackburn school.

Kev has produced work for The Beano, Dr Who Adventure and Match magazines, as well as appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe festival.

Famous for his quick-fire charicatures, which KevSutherland spent the day advising third-year pupils on the art of producing a comic strip.

He also took time out at lunch to answer questions from children and staff about his work.

Valerie Dewhust, head of library at QEGS, said: “The whole day had a buzz with pupils working hard to get through the fast-paced sessions.

"They were delighted to see the end results – a comic style book.

“All pupils involved were treated to their own caricature to take home, giving a real edge to what was a brilliant day.”

Thankyou Lancashire Telegraph, and thankyou Queen Elizabeth Grammar in Blackburn for having me. Oh and can I just say - charicatures? Charicatures??

* On an unrelated subject, the Clevedon Mercury ended last week after over 120 years of continuous publication. A tragic loss. I was in it loads.

If you would like to bring my Comic Art Masterclass to your school or art centre, drop me a line, a comment, a Twitter, carrier pigeon, whatever works. Click below to see more, including video and contact details.
