Tuesday 30 June – Sunday 5 July 2020

This week we’re thinking about careers and education in comics and narrative illustration:

Tuesday 30 June 

We’ve partnered with House of Illustration and commissioned illustrator Peony Gent to create two secondary school packs – an ‘Introduction to Comics’ and ‘Comics in the Curriculum’. These free and incredibly designed resources are free to share far and wide! 

Designed especially for 11-14 year olds, they are a brilliant introduction into comics, and perfect for anyone currently homeschooling or even just looking for some fun drawing prompts. 

Download the workshops here.

Friday 3 July 

The brilliant Lou Bones will be taking over our Instagram Stories this Friday from 2 – 4 pm.

  • Lou is currently an Illustration and Animation Agent for Jelly London
  • Want to know about kick-starting your career? The industry? Being a freelancer? Fair pay? Contracts? She’ll answer your questions on our stories so please DM us anything you’d like to ask beforehand! 

Throughout the week

We’re spotlighting some amazing ELCAF exhibitors over the course of the month. Keep a look out on our Instagram this week for Aleesha Nandhra, Bebel Books and Olivia Sullivan

Our programme is all free but please don’t forget to donate if you can! All proceeds will go to BlackLivesMatter and Hackney Winter Night Shelter
