This June, The Arvon Foundation is running a five-day residential Graphic Novel course, led by artist Leah Moore (Sherlock Holmes) and Myriad graphic novelist Kate Charlesworth (A Girl’s Guide To Sensible Footwear), with special guest Isabel Greenberg (The Encyclopaedia of Early Earth).
The course is suitable for artists and writers who aspire to collaborate on a comic or go solo with a self drawn project: it will help participants explore graphic styles and techniques, to generate and flesh out ideas, as well as learning write for a visual narrative, and lay out pages.
Kate Charlesworth, a celebrated cartoonist and former contributor to the Guardian, and acclaimed illustrator of Sally Heathcote: Suffragette, is currently working on a full-length graphic memoir, (A Girl’s Guide to) Sensible Footwear. It opens the curtains of lesbian history from the 1950s to the present day, with a little help from Gilbert and Sullivan and a side of Nancy Spain. Myriad will publish in 2018.
