October sees Cumbria hosting a big international comics festival, which I’m hoping is going to be a regular event. The Bunkasai at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal last year was a great success, and this certainly has the potential to be too.
A lot of the guests are from the more arty end of comics, rather than the mainstream superhero genre, so if you’ve ever wondered why the Guardian or the Independent art critics were twittering on about comics, this is your chance to turn up and find out.

I really got into life drawing as practice for drawing comics, and it is invaluable. Even if your comics are anthropomorphic mice, you still have to know how to draw movement and the way the limbs work. My own comic art is on one of my other blogs http://benandantiastralbodyguard.wordpress.com/2012/04/28/hello-world/ and, hopefully, the amount of time I put into life drawing is evident there.
