Francesca Wilson, The Saatchi Gallery:

‘Mik Brown creates imaginative workshops that use simple but very effective techniques! Mik creates a really relaxed atmosphere where kids feel able to explore their own drawing skills. Mik’s years of experience as an illustrator and cartoonist shine through as he skillfully guides kids through their creative workshops.’

The Golden Treasury Book Shop:

‘Thank you so much for the brilliant Cartoon Workshop last Thursday. Sorry it went on rather longer than we expected, the children just didn’t want to stop drawing, you were very patient with them.’

Sally Connew, Kensington and Chelsea Libraries:

‘Mik led a brilliant workshop for our library.  The children had a great time and got really involved in the workshop (as did the adults who took part!).  Mik has a great teaching style, very encouraging to all participants, is adaptable and treated the children as equals, rather than talked down to them, as is often the way with children’s workshops.  I would recommend Miko Cartoon to anyone!’

Kamini Mistry, Perivale Primary School and Children’s Centre:

‘A fantastic engaging workshop, which inspired the children to illustrate and draw characters for their story writing. The children and teachers very much enjoyed the workshop, taking back great ideas into the classroom.’

Emma Cadd, Aylesford School, Sports College:

‘Thank you so much for your visit yesterday.  Not only did you inspire the students but the staff too.  Everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed the session, they were interested in what you had to say and very impressed by your knowledge and talent.  The students really enjoyed getting the opportunity to have a go at drawing and with your clear, step by step instructions many discovered that they could in fact draw and were very proud of their end result.’

‘My TBL class really enjoyed the visit from Mik. They were so impressed with his drawings and found quite a few of them very funny, particularly the caricatures. They also really enjoyed finding out that they can all be good artists if they just build up a drawing using shapes’.  Jenifer Lile

‘Mik was very interesting and talented and the year 8s clearly enjoyed the session with him.  Even students who said they couldn’t draw had a go and enjoyed it’.  Allison Wellard

Aren’t some little people so lovely (and big people as well, of course!)
