Kev F Sutherland has many years’ experience as a comic strip artist, contributing to publications including the Beano, Dr Who Magazine, and Viz. He has appeared as an expert on comic art on various TV programmes. His Comic Art Masterclass has introduced numerous adults and children to the joy of creating comic strips. Since 2020 he has produced three graphic novels – Findlay Macbeth, The Prince of Denmark Street, and The Midsummer Night’s Dream Team. He is a comedian and has produced several shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, but is perhaps best known as the genius behind (or perhaps more accurately under) the fabulous Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre.
