Continuing our month of shows on comics and education, Alex Fitch talks to V for Vendetta illustrator David Lloyd and cartoonist Steve Marchant about the project – Cartoon Classroom – they’ve set up with the help of Paul Gravett; a not-for-profit website that aims to inspire the next generation of cartoonists and make the art form more accessible to children and adults who want to be more proficient at creating comic-strips and drawing cartoons. www.cartoonclassroom.co.uk is also designed as a gateway and information resource for studying cartoon and sequential art in schools, colleges, libraries and museums across the UK and Ireland and so Steve and David talk about the genesis of the project, its roots in the London Cartoon Centre and their own experiences both as comic book tutors and when they first broke into the industry.
