After the recent tragic events in France, where terrorists attacked the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, there has been a lot written in the media about cartoonists and comic art.
The Library Ladies picked up the following blog article (I want to make cartoons and comics but I have no idea where to start!) via Twitter which will tell you a lot about the different kinds of cartoon art and how to go about producing your own (not as difficult as you would think!)
It is written by Illustrator and writer Sarah McIntyre who is easy to spot in her pointy glasses and hats.
She makes picture books and comics with two other artists in an old police station – complete with jail cells! – in Deptford, south London. You may have seen her collaborations with Philip Reeve, Oliver and the Seawigs and Cakes in Space.
