Courses & Workshops

I teach courses in graphic novels and comics for all levels at the Royal Drawing School (until recently The Prince’s Drawing School) in Shoreditch. These courses generally run over ten evenings during term time or for one intensive week in July. Students are regularly shortlisted for the Cape/Comica/Observer Graphic Short Story Prize and have also gone on to be published by NoBrow and Avery Hill in the UK and Top Shelf Comix in the USA.

In addition, I frequently teach workshops for adults, children and teenagers around the UK. Previous venues/clients include the House of Illustration, Saatchi Gallery, Hay Festival, Jersey Festival of Words, UCL Medical School, SOAS, St George’s Hospital, Kingston University’s National Art & Design Saturday Club, the Momentum Project, E17 Art Trail, Kentish Town City Farm, B&NES Youth Climate Summit, and the Royal Drawing School’s Foundation Year and Drawing Clubs. Please contact me if you would like to arrange a comics workshop for your school, workplace, festival or activist/community group.

Private one-to-one tutoring/mentoring, consultation and editing on your graphic novel or picturebook project is also available – please contact me for more information.
