Cartoon Classroom: Marvel At The Museum

STOP PRESS: CB Cebulski posted on his Twitter this afternoon that he's unable to attend the event. 

Sad news, London... I won't be at the Cartoon Musuem or Kapow this weekend after all. First time I've ever had to cancel an event. So sorry!

Whether this means the event is cancelled or whether Marvel will be sending along someone else to take over remains unclear.


Legendary V For Vendetta and Nightraven artist David Lloyd also works with the Cartoon Classroom organisation. Today he posted some information on his Facebook about an event they are putting on.

He says:

Let me direct your attention to the event below. One of my other hats is worn working for Cartoon Classroom, and I'm happy to be able to help stage this event for it, allowing more opportunities for folks to see CB Cebulski while he's here for the London convention, Kapow. Please spread the word about it, if you can : )"

Marvel At The Museum

We're pleased to announce that on Friday, April 8th, at London's Cartoon Museum, Marvel Comics’ top talent chief, CB Cebulski, will be conducting an all-day portfolio review in three sessions :

Entry is open to everyone at regular museum admission prices : £5.50 ( £3.00 for students ).

Please confirm attendance if you can by emailing:

The Cartoon Museum is at 35, Little Russell St, London, WC1.  Call them on 0207 580 8155 for any other details.

David Lloyd and Steve Marchant will also be on hand throughout the day to give any extra advice and information those attending may require.

This is a Cartoon Classroom event in association with The Cartoon Museum.

But what is cartoon Classroom? This is from their website:

Cartoon Classroom has three key aims. 
1) To provide information for all officially recognised organisations who seek professional cartoonists to lecture and teach.

2) To provide basic advice and information to any member of the public wanting to study cartoon art, graphic novels, strip illustration and/or the specialised writing skills linked to such work.

3) To be the one central access point across the UK and Ireland for those studying in these areas, and for those who provide facilities for such study.

We invite colleges, galleries, museums, libraries, and professionals in the fields of cartooning and sequential art, to register with us and supply information for our service.

Cartoon Classroom is a non-profit venture, initiated with support from Caption, Oxford's annual small-press comics convention. It is overseen by comics-industry professionals with long-standing experience in educational fields.
