Drawing on their imaginations

PIRATES and a host of other characters were conjured from the imaginations of primary school pupils when they created their own comic books.

Douglas Bathgate, pictured, of Sunningwell School, drew this peg-legged pirate at the Story Museum on Tuesday.

The eight-year-old took part in a workshop run by Headington illustrator Neill Cameron. Mr Cameron said: “It was a brilliant day and the kids were really imaginative.”

The 37-year-old visited the museum as part of Maggie’s Day, commemorating the death of Maggie Evans, an Oxford literacy agent who specialised in children’s literature and died in 2008.
