Earlier today I took my Cartoon Academy to Manchester.
I was particularly excited by this class as the children were all home schooled. I confess I had no idea just how big the home schooling community is and it appears that Manchester is something of a key location.
Around 20 young children aged between 5 and 11 sat and watched as I introduced myself, my work and the work that we would all be producing.
Such a fantastic group of artists who picked up every technique with aplomb and were soon creating some wonderful cartoon characters.
I do hope to see them all again. Hugely rewarding.
