We will be hosting an art exhibition with the ‘A Castle In England’ graphic novel project which will be exhibiting artwork from the book and the illustrators involved.
Over the course of the art exhibition we will be hosting various talks, presentations and networking opportunities for writers, illustrators, artists and creatives.
A collaboration between writer Jamie Rhodes and the National Trust, A Castle in England is a unique and fascinating graphic fiction project inspired by Scotney Castle in Kent.
Using the rich history of this fourteenth-century castle as a starting point, Rhodes has created five short stories that take place over different eras in the castle’s past: The Labourer (Medieval), The Priest (Elizabethan), The Smuggler (Georgian), The Widow (Victorian), and The Hunter (Edwardian). Each of these stories has been illustrated by experienced comic and graphic novel artists Isaac Lenkiewicz, Briony May Smith, William Exley, Becky Palmer, and Isabel Greenberg, creating a visually striking graphic collection that is steeped in historical context.
Jamie Rhodes is a London based writer working in screen, prose, and comics. He studied Philosophy at Manchester Metropolitan University, where he focused on Heideggarian studies and Phenomenology. He later trained as a script reader and co-founded the filmmaking collective, Donkey Stone Films, in Nottingham. Jamie has been supported by: EM Media, IdeasTap, Arvon Foundation, Spread the Word, and the Arts Council England. He is the author of Dead Men’s Teeth, launched at the British Library in 2014.
You are invited to attend one or all of the upcoming events which include topics such as writing for the arts, how to use digital marketing to increase followers and sales, and writing for comics. You are also invited to drop in for a one-on-one consultancy session with Jamie Rhodes.
