Beano comic artist Kev F Sutherland gives masterclass for Porthcawl children

Kev helps the children design their own comic

A famous comic artist has been in Porthcawl today telling youngsters about some of his tricks of the trade.

Kev Sutherland is a writer and artist for The Beano and Doctor Who comics.

He's been teaching schoolchildren how to draw their favourite cartoon characters and devise some of their own!

Mike Griffiths went along to see him in action.

Kev hopes the workshop will encourage children to draw more and develop a love of storytelling.

The children had a chance to devise their own comic and receive a copy at the end
