April – December 2016
Visit the Shojo Manga exhibition, and take inspiration for your own manga creations. Design your own character, and learn about manga drawing and storytelling techniques. Pick up tips for developing your artwork as you make your own comic page featuring your manga character.
Kettering Museum and Art Gallery is hosting a fantastic exhibition about comics, including art from classic comics greats, as well as newcomers – and highlighting British comics and graphic novels as well as women artists. I have work on display, as do Glenn Fabry, Alison Sampson, Rachael Smith and a whole host of others.
From their website:
Visit the Alfred East Art Gallery this summer for our ‘Comics Unstripped!’ exhibition, where we look at the history of comics and graphic novels. The exhibition features the original artworks by Kettering’s Frank Bellamy, including some examples from Garth, Thunderbirds and Dan Dare. The exhibition, which runs from 9th July to 20th August, looks at DC and Marvel as well as some of the newcomers in the business.
They are also holding some workshops and a family fun day with a superhero theme, so please see their website for details.
I’ll be at the National Portrait Gallery this Sunday, running a comics making workshop for young people inspired by the Picasso Potraits exhibition.
