Due to unforseen circumstances, the opening discussion about the charity Comic Books for Kids! has had to be cancelled, but as a replacement we have an additional guest and slight rearrangement of the programme to begin the day with a chat about illustrators who work on children’s books as well as comics and graphic design.
Danny Noble is the illustrator of two children’s books written by Adrian Edmondson – Tilly and the Time Machine, and Junkyard Jack and the Horse That Talked – which tell uproarious tales of chatty ponies and time travelling girls. She is also the creator of an autobiographical comic, Shame Pudding, about eccentric Jewish Grandmas, and a much loved strip about two elderly actors – Oliver Reed and Alan Bates – who really ought to put some clothes on!
Matt Baxter is half of the award-winning creative design agency Baxter & Bailey who have designed stamps for the Royal Mail, and adverts for New Scientist, The NSPCC and Oxford University Press. In children’s comics, Matt created the cover for the pilot issue of The Phoenix, several covers for Doctor Who comic featuring cartoon versions of Tom Baker and David Tennant, plus the ongoing strip ‘Hire a Horror’ for the revived bimonthly comic Monster Fun!…
Danny and Matt will be talking about their work at Graphic Brighton, at 10.15am on Saturday 28th May. Book tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/graphic-brighton-45697789903
