Cartoon Workshop at SWARA

SWARA Cartoon workshop

I have recently begun art & craft volunteering at SWARA.  SWARA, Sunshine Welfare & Remedial Association is a multi-diagnostic disability centre in Brisbane.  Clients here can undertake a range of exciting crafts from baking, iron work, pottery and singing and dancing to name a few.

When I started there was already some work begun on a piece of creative writing called ‘Fawlty Wires’ being a sci-fi story with a hint of comedy taking on Fawlty Towers!!  There have been some great ideas and story lines created by the clients that I am now helping to develop and arrange into a cartoon comic strip.  As you can see from the picture the sequential story has begun…!!

Mat Denny, Manager provided the following testimonial:

“Edd Cross has volunteered at SWARA for the past year facilitating arts projects for people who experience disability and disadvantage.  Edd has  helped our members in numerous ways , stimulating their creative juices by getting people involved in fanzine design, cartoon drawing & story boarding. He is an excellent artist and a great teacher. I would certainly recommend Edd to any community organisation”
