Tim Perkins interviewed on the BBC

(Via Blimey! It's a Blog About Comics): Animation expert, comics creator and comics teacher Tim Perkins was interviewed on the John Gillmore show on BBC Lancashire this week, talking about his work and comics in general.

"We had some great fun and I ended up doing a sketch of John in his superhero alter-ego live on the show," Tim reveals on his blog, "and also gave him some art tips in the process, having him produce his own sketches too."

Tim's pretty busy at present, trying to finish his Worlds End graphic novel: he's also got several children’s book commercial commissions in the pipeline.

• You can listen to the interview until next Monday on the BBC iPlayer at Tim's interview starts about 16 minutes in, and runs until about 1:11 on the time bar.
