Guest Speakers:

Dan Berry is an illustrator, designer, cartoonist and lecturer based in the town of Shrewsbury, UK. He is the Programme Leader for the BA/MDES Illustration, Graphic Novels and Children’s Publishing degree courses at the School of Creative Arts, Wrexham Glyndwr University. Since 2012 he has produced the podcast Make It Then Tell Everybody in which he has spoken to over a hundred other artists about what they do and how they do it. He also records a comedy podcast with Hannah Berry (no relation) entitled No YOU Hang Up. He has produced illustration work for The NME, Michael Rosen, The National Union of Teachers and more.

Louise Crosby is an illustrator and printmaker.  She illustrates the poems of Clare Shaw (Bloodaxe) in their joint project Seeing Poetry: Poetry in Words and Comics. In Spring 2014 they were awarded a grant from Arts Council England. This has enabled them to develop the comics, produce mini books, plan workshops and develop this website which includes a webcomic

Florence Okoye– We all know her as our beloved LDC member & comic fan in the evenings, but by day Florence works as a UX Designer and spends the rest of her time writing science fiction, messing around with Arduinos and web technologies whilst studying dead languages and computer science. She is interested in projects that encourage public engagement with technology and the arts (in particular comic art!), especially those that explore the intersection of minority experiences.

She is also Events and Marketing Manager for the MancsterCon sequential art convention, and has created a series of zines herself.
