Franklin Bishop

Franklin has been a working cartoonist, illustrator and tutor since the early 1970s. Franklin has the insider and professional knowledge of the business to pass on to you that will give you the ‘edge’ in a very exciting, competitive and active market.

Franklin’s cartoon courses for the University of Nottingham Continuing Education, Derbyshire County Council Adult Education, Mental Health Young Adults groups and the Workers’ Educational Association – have all been tremendously successful and so popular that classes were often overbooked. Franklin is also a freelance motoring journalist and author of three books on Romantic Literature. He certainly likes to keep busy!

Franklin believes that whatever talent you have for cartooning, The Blackford Centre’s Diploma in Cartooning is designed to allow you to maximise your potential through comprehensive study modules and practical assignments.

Please note: we’re unable to allocate you a specific tutor, because it depends on the availability of tutors on the date you register on the course.
