Kate Charlesworth: Illustrator and Writer

Kate Charlesworth is a cartoonist and illustrator living and working in Edinburgh, originally from Barnsley, South Yorkshire. After art college in Manchester she began work as a freelance illustrator in London where, along with David Shenton – as cartoonists accidentally documented L&G – she was part of (as it was then known) the ‘golden age’ of Gay publishing.

Her work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, books, indie comics, exhibitions and electronic media and she has drawn storyboards for Hot Animation and Aardman Animations. In 2014 she collaborated with Mary and Bryan Talbot – 2012 Costa biography winners for their graphic novel Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes – to illustrate Sally Heathcote: Suffragette, published by Jonathan Cape. Her graphic memoir, Sensible Footwear: A Girl’s Guide is out now.

As part of the on-going Creative Conversation speaker series the illustrator Kate Charlesworth comes to campus to chat about her work. Bring your lunch and burning questions!

Sponsored by the Ferguson Bequest and programmed by Creative Writing at University of Glasgow.
