Neil Gibson from T Publications

We were lucky to have Neil Gibson from T Publications visit the students the other day to pass on how he wrote for comics. I think his Gibson Method is a winner. He also gave an excellent lecture on how to build suspense in comics pointing out 9 basic rules to consider.

New York New York

New York
What a week
We've just come back from going to New York with the Graphics and Illustration students. Our aim was to attend the New York Comic Con with the possible though to attend the event next year with a stall. Well that's the plan anyway, the logistic side could be a lot more of a challenge.

24 Hour Comic Day

24 Hour Comic Day

another year and another challenge. This one was specifically difficult as it was run in early October, so to some of the cartoonist it is/was a baptism of fire.
Needless to say I also took part and here is my contribution that was completed at 6.00 in the morning. You can clearly see where the lack of sleep kicked in and the whole world fell through the bottom!
We also had some good comics as well from the 1st year cartoon and comic arts students
