Comics

In collaboration with the Eisner Award-winning Orbital Comics,  we have been endeavouring to re-introduce the practice of life drawing to the comic art community. These sessions have paid tribute to classic creators like Will Eisner, Frank Frazetta, & Jack Kirby, and to popular characters like punk heroine Tank Girl (class led by Tankie artist Rufus Dayglo). We celebrated ‘summer blockbuster’ movies such as Thor: Ragnarok, Infinity War, and our epic Marvel vs DC session which featured a slew of cos-players. In 2017, we opened the 2000AD 40th anniversary celebrations with our Muties & Perps session at Resistance Gallery.
