As part of Cardiff Met’s World Book Day celebrations, we were lucky to be joined at Cardiff School of Art & Design by Graham Rawle, the celebrated writer and illustrator. Graham gave a succinct overview of his work, covering such topics as story structure, content and development. Talking with an audience of over 40 students and staff, he provided a real insight into the world of the graphic novel and generously answered questions and gave advice about the life of the professional novelist and illustrator.
