Last Friday saw cartoon and comic arts students reopening the Pop Up Comic Shop to sell the latest work produced over the summer by 1st- 2nd years. Included in the sales were fairy tales created by 1st year students, an anthology of fairy tales told from another chargers point of view. Also TED Talks (Ideas worth spreading) a selection of talks compressed into 4 page comics.
We also started to do caricatures of people with the money raise going to Children in Need charity.
I'm happy to say we raise £80 mainly by the art of Kieran Hayes (Killer fishy)
Here are some pictures of the event

London here we come
Last week cartoon and Comic Arts newest intake went to London.
The aim was to get them thinking about what comics are and introduce them to the many and varied ways that comics influence our society.
The trip to London started off with a bit of culture and the students were sent into the British Museum to seek out where Comics or sequential art has been used through out history.
In the afternoon Gareth Cowlin Took them to Sommerset House to see the exhibition by the Association Of Illustrators, while I headed off to London ExCel arena to set up the stall for MCM.
Saturday saw the students in MCM exploring yet another element of Cartoon & Comic Arts and how its influence has reached out across the UK to include Games, Manga, Independent Comics and Merchandising.
