how i make comics

Anita at London's Cartoon Museum asked me to do an info sheet for their school packets, to go along with the Vern and Lettuce pieces they have in their collection (pencil sketch, line work and digital final print).

Anita made me laugh when she explained some of my qualifications:

It just seemed such an opportunity given that we have the page at different stages .... plus.. you are young, female and very much alive a rare combination which doesn't recur in any of the other featured artists.

I told her that I will be sure to put the fact I not dead on my next CV. But it made me think of all sorts of comics I could make about workshops led by dead comic creators. They'd be real stinky, for a start. I bet Heath Robinson would've created some amazing things with his grave cloth and coffin nails.
