Artist talk and drawing prompts with illustrator Fran Meneses, hosted by Small Fry Collective

Join us in welcoming Fran Meneses to our latest edition of Small Fry Chats on Wednesday 17th August via Zoom (18:00 UK time)

Fran will be sharing with Small Fry's Maisy and Sarah her personal journey as an artist and how to navigate recalibrating your career in times of change according to new interests and needs. There will also be time at the end for a Q&A!

The event will also have some fun drawing prompts throughout led by Fran so you can sketch along!

"My name is Francisca (pronounced like San Francisco, but with an A at the end), but everybody calls me Fran. I'm a queer illustrator, author and content creator currently living and working in Brooklyn, NYC.

I was born and raised in Chile (this is why I have a lovely accent) and since 2013 I've been living abroad, away from family, friends and Chilean empanadas. (I miss all of them)

In a normal week, you'll find me at my studio drinking coffee and working on my upcoming graphic novel or designing stationery for my online store We Are Nice Humans. Part of what I love about being a creator is the chance to wear different hats; while I work on projects and comics, I like to show my life (with its ups and downs) on my youtube channel and social media. This honesty and vulnerability have allowed me to connect with my audience, and with their help and support I've been able to keep working on my projects full time."

You can follow our Small Fry Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Mailing Listfor updates and keep in the loop of other projects & events.

You will be emailed a Zoom link to access the event on the 17th of August. The event is hosted by Small Fry Collective hosts Maisy Summer & Sarah Wilson. A recording will be sent out after the workshop for those who cannot attend on the day.

You can email [email protected] if you have any questions about this event or accessibility requirements.

Fran can be found around the web via her own website, youtube, Instagram and Twitter
