downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hop over to for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Book your places now. "If you want to have me come to an art centre, library, or school near you, just ask and I'd be glad to," says Kev. "I cost little more than a supply teacher for the day. I can work with two groups in a school day, up to 30 in each group, any age from seven (year 3) upwards.

"By the end of each session the group has produced a comic containing a strip by every single one of them, a copy of which they take home, plus I've drawn a caricature of every one of them (I
can even draw all the staff if there's time).

• You can see examples of Kev's workshops, and videos of him in action (including my recent appearance on BBC1's The One Show) at
