Full Colour: Edinburgh Meet-Up

Find our more about BHP's Full Colour project, a mentoring programme designed to help creators from BAME backgrounds get started in comics, at this meet-up with the project creators!

Full Colour is a year long mentoring and development programme that will support and amplify the voices of comics writers and artists from BAME backgrounds living in Scotland, culminating in the publication of a graphic anthology of their work to launch at Glasgow Comic Con 2018. BHP will mentor the creators through a selection of workshops and face to face meetings with a focus on creative practice, editorial work, networking and career development at a national and local level. The young people involved in the project will contribute and collaborate to make the aforementioned graphic anthology as well as work towards producing their own work, leading to those involved forming a portfolio for future development. The publication and programme will be the first of its kind in the UK. By encouraging this group to make comics and develop a creative practice we hope to change the landscape of comics in the future, making it a far more inclusive and welcoming industry.

This project is aimed towards people of BAME origins aged 14-26.

An Evening with Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics

The name Frank Quitely has become synonymous with such iconic characters as Batman, Superman and the X-Men, and Scottish comics book artist Vincent Deighan – the man behind the pen name – has become an artist of similarly titanic proportions. Collaborations with such greats as Grant Morrison and Neil Gaiman, along with contracts with the two giants of comics publishing, DC and Marvel, have marked Quitely’s path to the top of his game.

An exhibition at Kelvingrove Museum and Gallery which runs until beginning of October charts this trajectory, showcasing the largest collection Quitely’s ever displayed, as well as presenting a selection of his influences and inspiration, from an original Batman comic strip to the Broons. Frank will be joining us for a really very special event to present the book published to go alongside the exhibition. We’ll be transforming the shop into a mini gallery itself for Frank to chat all things comics with writer and illustrator Sasha de Buyl-Pisco, and of course to answer any questions you yourself might bring along.

This event is free but booking is essential.
