McGarry Mania!

By Miss Sosnowsky, QES Library

Courtesy of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, and all the way from Los Angeles, professional cartoonist Steve McGarry wowed Year 10 Art students on Friday with a presentation about his amazing career.

Steve's talk covered how he’s gone from creating underground music promo material from his council house in Wythenshawe, to living in L.A working on The Minions Movie and seeing his Joy Division album cover displayed at MOMA in New York!

Steve’s pop star sons Luke and Joe (Fantastic Heat Brothers/ Pop Noir), then spoke about their experiences growing up amongst artists in LA, and how their careers in the music business and the cartooning world have exploded!

The McGarry’s then hosted a workshop in which student were taught how to draw their most famous characters and caricatures, including that of our Head of Art, Mrs Denby!

The McGarrys are best known for their work on The Minions Movie, viral sensation Sad Chewie, and their collaborations with Jack Black, Tenacious D, and Hoodie Allen!
