I've been mighty busy this past couple of weeks teaching kids how to write & draw comics, in schools in Ireland, North & South. Every one of my Comic Art Masterclasses gets a group of pupils, up to 30 at a time, producing a comic containing a strip be every single one of them, and a caricature by me. And a front cover, of course, with a title they come up with, after everybody has written a title on a piece of paper and we've voted to find the best. Don't blame me, this is what they've come up with this week (click to enlarge)...
These comics come from pupils in Dungarvan, Enniscorthy, Crumlin Dublin, Waterford, Ide (in Devon, that one's not from the Irish trip, how'd it get in there?), and Belfast. Here are some of the suggestions that they came up with from which we chose these final comic titles. And the celebrities they suggested when asked to come up with one for the "Steps On A Worm" demonstration were Psy, Eminem, Bob Marley, Daniel Craig, Paddy Doherty, Simon Cowell, Billy Joel and, offbeat suggestion of the week, Duke Special (a musician who's one of the pupil's Dads).
