Guest Post – John Lees

I’m pretty excited to share this guest post with you from SICBA Award Winner John Lees, a writer from Glasgow.

He was undertaking the free MOOC (online course) called Gender Through Comic Books (which I started but gave up due to not being able to give it the time it needed), and one of the tasks was to make your own comic strip. Here’s what John says about it:

“The big assignment for the course was to create your own comic about your experiences with gender.  I was stumped on what to do for the longest time.  What had happened in my life regarding my experiences with my straight-white-male gender that would be noteworthy enough to make a comic out of?  My longtime enjoyment of TV seriesDesperate Housewives?  In the end, I ended up cheating a bit by writing something that may not quite have actually happened to me, but hopefully speaks to my experience with masculinity and the stereotypes and conventions that come with it.  As ever, apologies for the ropey art!”

I really like the art!
