Kev F Sutherland
Comic writer and artist Kev F Sutherland's work has appeared everywhere from The Beano to 2000AD, from Star Trek to Viz, from Doctor Who Adventures to Match (and most points inbetween). See KEV'S COMIC STRIPS and caricatures
Since 2003 Kev has been offering COMIC ART MASTERCLASSES to school and colleges, which are proving ridiculously popular.
Kev F is a respected comics expert, appearing regularly on TV and radio (recently on Sky Arts' Portrait Artist Of The Year and BBC 4's Battle Of The Books), and in his own ITV1 comedy show The Sitcom Trials.
Kev F's Comic Art Masterclasses have been run successfully with pupils and students from Primary (yr 3 / 8 yr old recommended youngest) to Sixth Form and to Art Foundation Year students.
The classes aim to educate and enthuse pupils in comic and cartoon art, teaching them all techniques and tricks of the trade, presented at a level suitable for each age of pupil. By the end of every session we aim to have created a brand new School Comic and to have drawn an individual caricature of every pupil.
Kev's classroom style is entertaining as well as educational, drawing on his skills as a stand up comedian. One day of comic art masterclasses (ideally 2 sessions per day, classes no bigger than 30) can be arranged for little more than the price of a supply teacher. The only materials required are a flipchart and marker pens, access to a photocopier, and drawing paper and materials for the pupils. See below for Recommendations.
