Sarah McIntyre makes picture books and comics, including VERN AND LETTUCE, THERE’S A SHARK IN THE BATH, OLIVER AND THE SEAWIGS, and CAKES IN SPACE. She writes and draws a bi-monthly strip called SHARK AND UNICORN for The Funday Times, and was this year’s illustrator for the Summer Reading Challenge.
When doing events with children, she often get them making comics, even when the book isn’t a comic, because she finds it’s the medium that most inspires kids to draw and write their own stories.
Sarah's new picture book with David O’Connell, JAMPIRES, was inspired by a Comics Jam they did together, and they will be selling a limited edition version of the original comic at the festival.
Join them in the family area of the festival for Jampires presents: COMICS JAMTASTIC! Comics drawing fun for all ages.
