Friday Tip: Comic relief

Friday Tip: Comic relief

We’re theming today’s Friday Tip around comics.

First off, there’s Quick Draw Live, an exciting speed sketching event featuring some of London’s finest graphic artists. Quick Draw Live is run by Off Life, an organisation who distribute fantastic fee comics across the UK, and will be held at the Design Museum next Friday. Tickets here.

A little way down the South Bank, Tate Modern opened its massive Roy Lichtenstein retrospective yesterday. With the collaboration of The Art Institute of Chicago, Tate have pulled together an exhaustive collection of the artist’s works, including previously unseen drawings, paintings and collages.

The show was reviewed on BBC Radio 3 last week, with our very own Roger Mavity was on hand to lend his very positive opinion.

And there we have it. Comic relief for all!
