MK Calling Artist Workshop: Jade Sarson


MK Calling Artist Workshop with Jade Sarson

4 September 2013 / 6.30pm / An event for anyone 16+


Milton Keynes based graphic novelist and MK Calling current exhibitor Jade Sarson, who was shortlisted for the MK Community Foundation Arts Bursary 2012,  presents an evening workshop focusing on typography.

The aims and objectives of this workshop are to help you to gain knowledge of the many uses of lettering in comics and elsewhere, gain an understanding of the appropriateness of lettering to context/function, and to leave knowing that lettering is as fun to design as the art itself, and how important it is to the communication and telling of a story.


Jade Sarson is a Bletchley based illustrator, writer and comic artist who likes tea and old books. She graduated from the University of Lincoln in 2011 with a first class honours degree in Illustration. Her work is a fusion of British and Japanese influences, and combines digital and traditional techniques – it has been featured in Neo Magazine, Electric Bloom Webzine, and in anthologies such as Leek and Sushi and Parallel Lives. In 2012 she won 3rd place in the Japanese embassy’s Manga Jiman competition. Her current projects include the popular tea-inspired webcomic Cafe Suada, and her graphic novel Siddown!
