saturday in the comics tank!
Yesterday a bunch of us from the the DFC had a great time leading a comics workshop at London’s Cartoon Museum Presenters included the Etherington brothers, Zak Simmonds-Hurn and Adam Murphy. (Zak and Adam’s stuff will be appearing later in the DFC.) Here are some pics and you can see some great photos by Alex Lee here (including one of me looking like a horse). Thanks so much to those of you who came along, including my novelist Bologna travel buddy Candy Gourlay and her daughter Mia, who stars in the remarkable film Why Writers Need Agents.
The pub afterwards was great fun, so many comics people that I’m really fond of joined us, including Ellen Lindner, Stephen Betts, Sean Azzopardi, Dave O’Connell, Rian Hughes, DFC publicist Lindsey Mooney, Giovanni Spinella, Will Kane and Cartoon Museum artist-in-residence Mark Stafford.
Lorenzo and groupies; a guy who had an amazingly well designed comic about peanut butter and jam superheroes
Upcoming cartoonists from Iran; Adam, Lisa, Bob and Lorenzo
Zak on the boards; a guy with a cool split-personality comics character
Mia and Candy Gourlay; Adam pulling faces for his ‘expressions’ workshop
Two visitors from Ohio; another kid who had a zillion and a half funny comics ideas
Here’s when things started to go a little weird…
Messing around with Adam in front of the wacky mirror; in the pub
With Sean Azzopardi; with Mark Stafford, looking pretty much as blurry as the last time I saw him at the DFC launch
