Kids get into character
YOUNGSTERS like Christopher (pictured) created their own comic characters at intu Uxbridge when Beano cartoonist Kev Sutherland visited last Friday.
YOUNGSTERS got a lesson in drawing comics from a master when The Beano cartoonist Kev Sutherland arrived at intu Uxbridge.
He held ‘masterclasses’ for kids on Friday, which included how to draw your own cartoon strip and character drawing, with each child taking home a cartoon caricature of them drawn by Kev.
The visit was part of the three week Beano Takeover at the shopping centre this summer.
Lisa Trodd, assistant marketing manager at intu Uxbridge, said “We’re thrilled to have welcomed Kev Sutherland to intu Uxbridge on Friday.
“Our young visitors really got to learn about The Beano, and how to design their own comic strips from the expert himself.”
There’s plenty more mischief taking place with the Beano Takeover until Saturday August 15, including The Prank Academy, Joke Wall and a visit from Dennis the Menace himself.
