The Cartoonists Club of Great Britain are back at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival this year, with their club stand in the Comics Clock Tower as usual, along with many other great exhibitors, festooned with Rich Skipworth’s amazing towers of power. Seeing the event as a great opportunity for showing and selling members’ merchandise, they’ll also be holding their club AGM over the festival weekend.
Southampton-based Simon Chadwick has over 20 years of professional experience, much in a design and advertising setting. Together with partner Josephine, a journalist, he set up Ceratopia, a business combining his talents for graphic design and cartoon illustration. That was over ten years ago now, and during that time he’s worked with many High Street brands, visitor attractions and other design agencies.
Simon has illustrated almost thirty children’s picture books, including Georgy The Goat, written by John Perkins, and The Rubbish Monster Thing, which he both wrote and drew. He also regularly visits Hampshire schools to talk about the topics covered by some of the books and run workshops.
