Cartoon fun

WI members learn drawing secrets from a professional.

Stanhoe and Barwick WI members and a large number of guests were entertained by a very clever cartoonist called Marko at their June meeting.

Marko shows how to draw cartoon animals

Over the years he has developed a series of cartoon characters: the elf with the red nose, the teddy bear, a range of Christmas characters, and a cat, which he cleverly drew for us with witty stories to aid the development of his drawing.

As well as being a cartoonist Marko is a well practised mimic, and his stories were interspersed with impressions of great comic characters from past eras.

To finish, everyone was turned into a cartoonist. We were each given a template of a circle drawn on paper, and a pencil, and were invited to follow step by step instructions to create a cartoon dog. To our amazement we achieved this, and the results were impressively varied.

The following business meeting was a more sombre affair as Fran Ulyatt was presented with a certificate in recognition of 25 years of membership of our WI; we were able to look at and marvel at the displays set up for the recent WI exhibition in the church; and we firmed up details for several outings including our upcoming birthday tea which we are looking forward to greatly.
