Papa Big Lips - more comics by kids

These smashing comic book covers come from pupils in quite the most diverse range of places you can imagine. From Croydon (the girls school that Susanna Reid and Anneka Rice went to, don't cha know), Richmond (the boys school Zac Goldsmith, Lawrence Dallaglio and Nigel Planer went to by the way), Glasgow (a primary school in The Gorbals, which has changed a bit in recent years), and Largs (the birthplace of Nardini's ice cream, and John Sessions). As I always find in schools, kids have more in common than they have dividing them, though if one were to generalise I would say that posh schools' teachers are a bit pushier than normal schools.

Celebs chosen by the above pupils for the demonstration strip were Harry Styles, Beyonce, Vladimir Putin, Miley Cyrus, Michael Jackson and Will I Am.

If you would like me to come to your school and share my expertise from 25 years writing and drawing comics for everyone from The Beano to Marvel comics, then do please get in touch.



More comics from pupils in Chorley, Newcastle Under Lyme, Borehamwood and Henley, in Hertfordshire and Weston Super Mare, in Cardiff, Falkirk, Birmingham and rural Devon. You'll find many more if you scour this blog.

(For example if I say I can work with no more than 30 kids in one class at any one time, normal state schools will usually respect this, probably because they know from experience that more than 30 at a time is untenable, whereas two of the three independent schools I've visited in the last fortnight - schools where, and I checked, they never teach classes of more than 22 at a time - have broken the rules. One school made me do a group of 44 (though to be fair this is because my car broke down on the motorway making me 3 hours late, so they bundled both classes of 22 into one, and I worked through lunchtime to get all their caricatures done. Though, to be unfair, they did then try to get me to reduce my invoice to half a day. Sigh). )
