Festival favourite Vivian French challenges comic creators to a lively game of consequences. You choose the starting point for each story and then the writers take it in turns to move the story along. Come and watch some fantastic live drawing and see how comic makers Adam Murphy, Gary Northfield and Zak Simmonds-Hurn fare when you throw your craziest ideas at them. Suitable for kids aged 8-12 and possibly well-behaved adults. Tickets £5. More details here.
I have extensive experience providing workshops, live drawing performances and talks for kids and adults. Past events include Edinburgh Book Festival, Hay Literary Festival, Phoenix Fest, Story Museum, CBBC Live, Stoke Newington Literary Festival, Oxford Literary Festival, Cartoon Museum, UK Literacy Association and many, many primary and secondary schools across the UK. I am also part of the Scottish Book Trust Live Literature program, which helps fund author visits in Scotland. If you are interested in booking me for events, please get in touch! Here are some of my upcoming events - it would be great to see you!

Anglia Ruskin Summer Illustration Conference
I'll be speaking about my process, making a living as a comics artist, and the strange journey that brought me here. Also featuring an awesome lineup of artists, illustrators and industry professionals. Alas, I think it's only for attendees of the conference, but fear not! I'll also be at Heffers Bookshop the night before (Friday 29th) signing and chatting, so you can come to that if you're in the area :-)
