Participants will use poetic and literary sources to create their own individual, emotive and creative cartoon strips. Cartoonist Rachael Ball will use her own and other cartoonist's work to explore the devices artists use to connect with their audience and to convey feelings of connections, relationships, loss and alienation.
Admission: £10 to include refreshments.
Rachael Ball started her cartooning career in 1988, initially doing strips for Manchester’s City Life and for '90s cult comic ‘Deadline.’ Her first graphic novel The Inflatable Woman (Bloomsbury Publishing, 2015) was one of the Guardian's Best Graphic Novels 2015 and was shortlisted for British Book Design Awards 2016. The Inflatable Woman is a surreal, poetic and comedic response to her experiences with breast cancer. She is currently completing her second graphic novel The Wolf Man which will be published by Self Made Hero and is a fictional retelling of the loss of her father as a child. You can see more of the Wolf Man on the last day of each month on her website at http://rachaelball.tumblr.com.
