Illustration Workshop, April 13th.

Illustration Workshop Poster

I’m doing an illustration workshop on April 13th for the inpatients at Highgate Mental Health Centre in London. The participants will be taking part in drawing a cartoon strip about a day – any day, past, present or future – in their life and how the day is relevant to their feelings. They will also have the chance to use many different materials and mediums to work on their pieces.

The workshop is invite only for the inpatients, however if you know someone who is attending the centre please let them know about the workshop. Please note the day of the workshop is actually the 13th April and not 6th as advertised on the poster.

Scottish Mental Health Art & Film Festival

I am massively excited to announce that I will be working in Edinburgh this weekend for the Scottish Mental Health Art & Film Festival. If you’re about and you fancy it, and especially so if you are a mental health service user, I will be conducting a cartooning (in the loosest possible sense) workshop at North Edinburgh Arts (details below).

The workshop is free but places are going fast so if you do want to book, book now! All artists will have to option to display their work in the Festival exhibition and included in a large illustrated book produced by my arts in mental health organisation, Mental Spaghetti.

The workshop will focus on drawing a comic strip of ‘A day in your life’. Artists (no artistic experience necessary) will have the opportunity to work with lots of different pens, inks, paints and styles of drawing. The comic strip does not have to be a literal day in your life, it can be a feeling, an expression of a particular time, or maybe even no time in particular. You can always do a stickman cartoon too. Anything goes. The important thing is you get to have fun, create, and learn something new.

If you would like to take part please book now by clicking this link.
