Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
