Comics interns at the londonprintstudio, funded by the John Lyon’s Charity are still running free comic workshops tailored towards 16-20 year olds, as a youth project.

Working under the mentor-ship of artist Karrie Fransman, the project is also offering the chance to have work created during these sessions exhibited at londonprintstudio.

The interns – Abraham Christie, Jade Sarson, Lily-Rose Beardshaw, Merlin Evans, Shamisa Debroey and Susan Yan Mach – are also woking on the production of a comics anthology in March entitled Parallel Lives, featuring comics made by them and the youngsters they’re teaching.
