Thunderchair obliterates the next generation of illustrators minds!
Having all met at University aeons ago, it was only just that Thunderchair return to tell the tales of it’s magical trail. While stalling at BIF last summer we were blessed by a surprise encounter with our educator Ceri, who asked if we might return to share our story with the art school students and give a workshop, thundystyle…
Take a look at some fine imagery depicting this momentous occasion – oh what a joy! We gave our ideas about process and collaboration, before leading a fast paced comics making workshop.
Thanks to the students and tutors of Southampton Solent University for having us!
ciao for now,

The rollercoaster of ‘Thun’ continues at a relentless pace, and the hivemind is feeling good! We had a great time last Sunday helping Ruby Hinton run her Draw Your Feelings workshop – we got to draw and hang out with some sweet sweet beings. The workshop was run off the back of the Equinox spring time exhibition here in Bristol where we exhibited some work – keep your eyelids ajar for new posters in the Thunderchair shop!
On top of this our friend and general good creature Max K of Shake has interviewed us for the latest issue of his magazine. Its the best one yet and inside you will find out what truly keeps our twisted hearts ticking. Buy your copy now HERE …
