Starting a month of shows about non practitioners’ love for comics, guest presenter Robin The Fog talks to graphic designer and music producer Strictly Kev, better known as DJ Food. A lifelong comics fan, Kev tells us about engaging legendary 2000AD artist Henry Flint to make the artwork for his new LP ‘The Search Engine’ and also for the three EPs that make up the release; and also how a love of comics in his formative years compliments not only his graphic work but his musical productions today.
The art of The Search Engine by Henry Flint and DJ Food is on display at Pure Evil Gallery, 108 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4RH until the end of February 2012.

Storytelling for Comics and Graphic Novels course
You will learn about comic and graphic novel storytelling techniques, and how to create your own visual narrative. Everyone will end the course with one completed comic page, and the skills to continue their work for themselves. We will look at comic and graphic novel art styles, the use of text and images, the “grammar” of comic art, use of sound effects, abstraction, and styles. You provide a story from your own experience, or one you wish to adapt into the medium.
