Watch Frank Quitely’s TEDx Talk

Talking Frankly

♦ One of Tripwire’s favourite artists and a guest at May’s Portsmouth Comic Con, Frank Quitely did a TEDx talk at the University Of Glasgow a couple of months ago and we thought we would share it with everyone here…


In this talk, Frank explains the unique communicative power of comics, guiding us through graphical compositions and constructions that harness the full potential of comics as a medium. Frank Quitely has garnered worldwide acclaim for drawing comics for Marvel and DC comics, bringing to life superheroes resident in Gotham, Metropolis, or the X-Mansion. Frank himself is firmly planted in his native Glasgow. Here he has studied and lectured at Glasgow School of Art, received an honorary doctorate from the University of Glasgow, and exhibited at the Hunterian as well as Kelvingrove Art Gallery. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
