Here’s a sneak preview of one of the pencil roughs from the cartoon panels for The Butts exhibition at The Hive.
Twenty-seven frames will form a cartoon story based around Kasey, the great-granddaughter of a person who worked in The Butts cattle market, searching the Archives with her iPad. She sees different key periods in time before finding her great-grandfather in the 1930s. The story will be embedded in the 9 panels which will form the opening exhibition at The Hive.
It is the first time explosives have features in one of our heritage comics since one we produced about the Warwickshire connection to the gunpowder plot and another about a gunpowder works in the Brecon Beacons.
