I am available for talks, panels and workshops on and around the subject of story in comic strips and graphic novels, or on the topic of illustration and being an illustrator. I have presented these at literary festivals big and small (including Hay, Cheltenham, Bath and Edinburgh), as well as local libraries and schools for a variety of ages (generally 7 or 8 to early teens, but art students and adults enjoy them too). I've also been a guest at comics festivals in France, Germany, Austria, Denmark and the Netherlands.
I will usually require a laptop with PowerPoint, plus a projector and screen, though I am able to do a version with no computer at all, showing images on A3 hand-held boards (not practical for large audiences).
Workshops can be tailored for the specific event - for instance I helped four classes at one school create their own Olympic Superheroes and villains for the London 2012 Games - it was manic, creative, and enormous fun.
Workshops can last from 40 minutes to an hour and a half (an hour is good), and I'd require a flip chart with pad and markers, plus paper and pens/pencils for the workshoppers.
