Interview with Tony O' Donnell - artist on Ivy the Terrible and early collaborator with Grant Morrison (8022 words)
Ian Kennedy has painted thousands of covers for Starblazer, Commando and Football Monthly and he used to work for Fleetway and Marvel UK, where he drew strips such as 'Dan Dare, 'Blake's Seven' and even 'Judge Dredd'.
I was cheered up at UKCAC when I was introduced to Ian Kennedy by Bill Graham and Bill McLoughlin from DC Thomson.
He was very friendly and encouraging and gave me a much more relaxed critique of my work one of his suggestions was to always try and keep it as simple and direct as possible.
