IT’S every child’s dream to draw for the comic The Beano and children met the man living that dream on Monday.

Comic artist Kev F gave a workshop at Dorchester Festival, teaching the youngsters how to produce their own comic strips.

He draws the Bash St Kids in The Beano and has worked for Marvel Comics, Viz, Doctor Who and Red Dwarf.

Kev F, whose real name is Kev Sutherland, said: “I’ve been drawing comics for the past 20 years and have worked on The Beano for the last six.”

Mr Sutherland, 49, said: “They did some marvellous work at the Dorchester festival, I was really impressed with them.”

Each child got a caricature of themselves to take home, Mr Sutherland added.

The festival runs until Sunday.
