John Swogger – archaeologist / illustratorThis year he is starting work with writer Ben Dickson on a graphic biography of Neville Chamberlain. John will talk about his past and current comics projects, and discuss what it means practically, creatively and career-wise to evolve from someone who does comics as a part-time interest, to someone who does comics full-time.

John started using comics ten years ago to talk more effectively about history, archaeology and heritage to public audiences. He now produces archaeological comics all over the world, from the Caribbean to the Pacific, for museums and government heritage agencies, as well as clients such as National Geographic. johngswogger.wordpress.com
