Tom Foster's headshot

I have been a professional comics artist for over five years and am currently drawing for 2000AD and The Judge Dredd Megazine. I also paint covers for Commando comics and have produced tutorials for Imagine FX Magazine in written and video format.

I have done a number of school talks and workshops and have been a guest artist at a number of comics conventions, so am very comfortable working with groups of people of all ages (9+) and skill levels. I can provide presentations ranging from the length of a single school period to full days of activities, including live drawing, tutorials and exercises in visual storytelling. I have experience working with reluctant readers and ASN groups and my workshops are typically designed to be accessible as possible for mixed ability groups. (Photo credit: Cameron Foster)
