Ever wanted to create your own comic strip but didn’t know where to start?
In this beginner’s workshop Participants were shown how to create a comic strip. Cartoonist Jaime guided participants each step of the way as they create a character, set the scene, and develop their own one-page story.
Jaime Huxtable is a cartoonist and illustrator based in Worthing, West Sussex. He has illustrated comics on many subjects, ranging from Winston Churchill to the discovery of the iguanodon.
