Colin Shelbourn

Cartooon Workshop.

Colin has been running cartoon workshops for over 20 years in venues such as London’s Natural History Museum, Leeds City Art Gallery and Blackpool Art Gallery. He firmly believes that anyone can draw and that cartoons are one of the easiest ways into art. This workshop will look at character, movement and how to get life into your drawings. No drawing experience is necessary, just the willingness to draw a squiggly line and laugh.

Colin Shelbourn is a professional cartoonist and author based in Windermere, Cumbria. He is The Westmorland Gazette’s editorial cartoonist and his work has been published in The Times, Readers Digest, Private Eye and in over 200 books. He is also the author of Drawing Cartoons: a complete guide to the art of cartooning. He was Britain’s first official radio cartoonist for CityTalk Radio in Liverpool and has occasionally been known to draw on TV.
