Simon Grennan at ECA

Today we were delighted to welcome Simon Grennan, comic maker and scholar who came to deliver a comic workshop and talk to our students.

The practical workshop was an amazingly easy and exciting hands-on introduction to visualising and making comics. Students worked through three different techniques to making stories with drawings. All that was needed were coloured pencils – hippos, lions, zebras etc were provided!


Later in the day Simon gave a an Introduction to Comics Studies to the whole Illustration department raising the questionWhat do we talk about when we talk about comics?’  He provided an accessible, engaging and entertaining introduction to the global conversations about comics, their history, production, readers and thinkers.

Simon Grennan is author of the graphic novel ‘Dispossession’, a Guardian Book of the Year 2015 and Research Fellow in Fine Art at the University of Chester.
