About to go live …

Update (Friday): In answer to questions – two short sections were filmed at about 7.20 and 7.35. The main feature was an interview with the Bishop of Kansas, but my tent was used as the backdrop, and my cartoon How Christians can work together across the divide was used to introduce the item. On the second occasion I did a one sentence introduction to the cartoon. I don’t have a link to it online I’m afraid.

The blurb on the sign reads:

Lambeth Conference
Cartoonist in Residence

Cartoonist Dave Walker will be producing daily cartoons based on the events of the conference. The cartoons will appear in this tent and on the conference intranet and Lambeth Conference website.

Some other examples of Dave’s work will be displayed here in the tent in the early days of the conference. Most of these are taken from Dave’s CartoonChurch.com website or the Canterbury Press books ‘The Dave Walker Guide to the Church’ and ‘My Pew – things I have seen from it’.

Biographical information:
Dave Walker works as a freelance cartoonist and draws a weekly ‘Guide to the Church’ cartoon for the Church Times along with a blog on the Church Times website. Formerly a church youth worker, Dave started drawing cartoons professionally in 2005 following the publication of his Windsor Report series the previous autumn. Originally from Newport, South Wales, Dave currently lives in Essex. More information about his work can be found on stand E7 in the Marketplace.
