From Felixstowe to Norwich, via Romsey and four days in Hexham, it's been a busy week and a bit of Comic Art Masterclasses, and here's what they've come up with. Felixstowe's comics were produced on a Sunday in the library, in a group including kids and parents, and thus featuring farting in the title. At schools, during the selection process, I usually have to squeeze out farts.
Again with the kids and Donald Trump. And, being year 7s, you get un-ironic suggestions like Timmy, where the South Park guys create a character who was never, I'm sure, intended to give teenagers an excuse to mock a disabled kid in a wheelchair, but that's what happens.
Not every cover's a classic, and I can inly come up with what there's time for. At the time I thought these two were a bit ropey, the first being based on one of the kids' designs, and the other an uninspired picture of a Nan in a bin. But oddly I've warmed to them.
Kev F Sutherland, as well as writing and drawing for The Beano, Marvel, Doctor Who et al, runs Comic Art Masterclasses in schools, libraries and art centres. After a morning or an afternoon every pupil goes away with a photocopied comic containing a strip by every single one of them, and an individual caricature by Kev F.
