This dark tale comes from Matt Williams. Another examples of how a simple palette can really add tension to a comic. Keep up the good work!

Guildford College is the home of a wide range of visual and creative arts (as well as everything from construction to hairdressing. Our students are an eclectic bunch).

We are, possibly, best known for sculpture, with both Henry Moore and Dame Elizabeth Frinke walking through our beautiful School of Art doorway but nowadays we do a fine job of teaching visual arts on both desktop computer and touch screen. You may have seen us at MCM, LSCC, BETT, the Gadget Show Live, Eurogamer Expo and many more fine places in which case, hi, nice to see you again.

The students, every year, are given the Adventures in Comics brief, which is basically “two pages, that’s the title.” It’s fun and lovely and every year I love what they do. I hope you like it too.

My full name is Stylianos (Stelios) Tomazos. I come from Greece and I was born on October 22nd, 1984 in Chios Island (an island in the eastern Aegean Sea). At the age of 18, I came to Athens to study in the University. At the time being, I continue living in Athens. I have a degree in English Language and Literature and another one in French. My first postgraduate studies were focused on “Educational Technology and Human Resource Management”. I also attended a two-year program in 3D Animation. This year I attend a postgraduate program in “Maritime Studies”. I love reading novels (Classic Litterature, Modern Litterature) and, of course, comics. I am a superhero comic book fan, but I love European comic albums (French, Italian) and crime stories, as well. I spend my leisure time working out in the gym, writing comic book scripts and drawing comics for contests or for my personal projects.

This is my Deviant Art webpage where you can find more samples of my artwork:

A fantastic entry from Pip Hodgkinson, reminds me of one of my favourite artists Dave McKean. Look forward to seeing more!

Using inks, pastels, oils and pencils Pips works attempt to create dark worlds linked by nostalgia, humour and a sense of decay. A graduate filmmaker from the east coast of Suffolk Pip now resides in London, not making as many films a he should but doing a lot more painting and illustration, so every cloud.

Here we have a comic based on Hannah Lee Miller’s experiances at the fun fair. I really like the simple palette and characters used here. Can see why you don’t like fairgrounds!

I am an artist and writer. I’m currently working on a number of children’s book proposals. I teach Art at an all-boy’s inner city high school. I have a one-page comic in DUMP 3 illustrating a story by David Robertson.

Nothing beats a good old hero origin story and here we have Liam Magill’s submission for Adventures in Comcics 2015. Unfortunately I’m not sure that these two are really up for the job! Great work Liam, keep them coming.
