Ten budding artists learnt about creating graphic novels at a workshop led by Lincoln-based illustrator and comic artist Jade Sarson.
The three day workshop, supported by Market Place, was organised by independent publisher Bird’s Nest Books and took place at March Town Hall during the half term.
Among the skills learned was storytelling, character design, different comic styles and how to portray emotion.
Jane Levicki of Bird’s Nest Books, said: “We were delighted to be able to bring such a talented and experienced artist as Jade to Fenland.
“She taught the group so much over the three days and they used those skills to create some fantastic work.

Jane plans to develop this initial workshop into a regular group, meeting to share work and ideas, possibly looking ahead to creating an exhibition or publishing a collection.
