Harry Venning: The Art of the Cartoon

In ‘The Art Of The Cartoonist’ Harry will be tracing the history of his profession with examples from early practitioners like Cruickshank and Hogarth, to more contemporary artists such as Giles and Schulz, bringing events right up to date with cartoons produced fresh on the page that day! Yes, Harry will be drawing live.

Harry Venning is a cartoonist, comedy writer and performer based in Brighton.

Harry’s cartoons have appeared in publications as diverse as Mathematics Today, Radio Times, Music Teacher and The Stage. For twenty five years he provided The Guardian with the weekly strip cartoon Clare In The Community, about an unaware and empathy free social worker. In 2004 he developed Clare In The Community into a successful BBC Radio 4 sitcom starring Sally Philipps which ran for twelve series.

You can attend TVAS lectures for just £8 (pay on the day) or become a member – annual membership is £50 or £95 per couple.
