Finally Drawing at Last


Getting back to drawing Comics!

Above work unfinished! Tempus Nobel Chapter 6

It seems like ages but I finally got back to putting pencil in hand, along with a bit of ink from my new Pentel Brush Pen, with scanner and computer at hand I've found an hour to sit down and draw. I've finally got the feel back for what I'm doing. At one point it all seemed paperwork and meetings with budgets and designing new modules and booking trips, it felt like it was a million miles away from what I wanted to do, draw! So I finally completed all the pencil sketches for Tempus Nobel Comic and come up with a conclusion. This all started so long ago when Prince William and Kate got married and at one point was very topical, Now the first Chapters seem a bit dated. Anyway, I'm hoping to get some of the comics printed for the London Super Comic Con in March. Fingers crossed.

UCAS success

We had a great time recruiting for the award at the 2 UCAS events in both London and Manchester. Interest in the award was up by about 300% with knowledge of the award growing. We look forward to seeing all those students interested in the award.

Graham Humphrey visit to Staffordshire University

The other week we were very lucky to get visiting professional Graham Humphrey in to talk about his life as a film poster designer and how that had changed to producing Dvd covers. In the afternoon he showed his storyboarding technique and we were lucky that he did a small master class for the students.
