Another busy week teaching kids how to do comics, ooh it's hard work. And what have they come up with..? (Click to enlarge)
These comic book covers (and you can see a glimpse of a few of the kids strips and their caricatures - did I mention every kid goes away from my Comic Art Masterclasses with a comic containing a strip by each of them plus their individual caricatures?) - come from schools in Weston Super Mare. That's right, just a week-full of schools in Weston Super-Mare (or to be more precise Worle, which is a town in its own right, which everyone very cruelly thinks of as a bit of Weston but it's not). 3 days at Worle Community College and 2 days in 4 primary schools. A busy old week. And who did they come up with in the old "celebrity treads on a worm" routine, when I ask them to name a celebrity? See below...
This week's celebrities were Keith Lemon, Ed Sheeran, Elvis Presley, Selena Gomez, Harry Styles (three times), Michael Jackson, Simon Cowell, and Lionel Messi. No great surprises from this week's years 4 - 7s, bless them, they were all lovely.
If you're developing a taste for this kind of thing, there's a whole archive of Comic Art Masterclass comics on my website, including these choice examples and many more...
