Spotlight On Stephen Collins


This week we hosted an informal lunchtime talk and Q&A with incredible cartoonist, illustrator and graphic novelist Stephen Collins, freely available to all AOI members!

Stephen discussed his experience ‘writing with pictures’, a creative process that has encapsulated his career. He also shared a behind the scenes look at what goes into creating a graphic novel. We then had a Q&A covering everything from how Stephen’s style has developed, to where he finds the inspiration for his narratives.

We are introducing our Spotlight On sessions as a casual, social activity, to connect our community during these unusual times. Keep an eye out on our shop, newsletter and social media for more lunchtime chats with inspiring illustrators being announced over the next few weeks!
