How perfect that the final comic produced by pupils in my last day of Comic Art Masterclasses this year should be called Zon's Killer Christmas Party. A fine way of rounding off a busy year of classes. Two of the examples above come from Eastern Green Primary in Coventry, and one from a private party booking in a lovely ancient house in Box.
And talking of lovely ancient houses, tell me this isn't the poshest pair of backstage Sock-selfies you've seen this year? The Socks played a 50th birthday party in Wimborne St Giles at the ancestral home of the Earls Of Shaftesbury, which is in the process of extensive and very impressive restoration. You'll like it when it's finished. And there's a familiar statue in the middle of the ornamental pond. Given whose house it is, can you guess which statue?*
The celebs chosen by my last three Masterclass pupils to tread on a worm were Ant McPartlin, The Queen and Johnny Depp. Which begs the question, who have been the most popular Celebs-Who-Tread (no, got to find a better name than that) of 2015? Sounds like the subject for a whole new blog to me...
Oh yeah, I made a new banner to include in my emails to schools. Hope you like it.
