Karen Rubins

I am a comics creator and illustrator living and working in London, UK. I have been making comics since the beginning of the century, and enjoy collaborative storytelling in all its forms. As well as writing and drawing, I run workshops, clubs and courses for all ages.

Welcome to my website. Have a look around at the artwork, read about what I’m up to in my blog, or find out how to hire me for your project.

I am currently accepting illustration and comics commissions, and am available for workshops, talks and courses throughout the year.

Please see the About me page for more info, or contact me here.

Upcoming events

Comic Turns at the Cartoon Museum @ The Cartoon Museum
Mar 10 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Come and play my new game Comic Turns at the Cartoon Museum where I will be demo-ing my prototype game and showing you how to play. This is a drop in session to test the game. Stop by any time between 2 pm and 4 pm and see if you have what it takes to create stories!

Comic Turns is a unique comics storytelling card game system, that lets you create stories and explore the fun of making comics. You can play collaboratively, competitively, or on your own. Drop in and try your hand at a game or two! This event is suitable for adults and children from age 7 upwards.

More information about Comic Turns is available on http://comicturns.com and the Kickstarter campaign is currently live

This event is free, but museum admission charges apply (£7 adults; £5 concessions; £3 students; children under 18 enter for Free). Come for the game, stay for the awesome exhibitions or vice versa! :)
