Doctor Dave

Published On September 14, 2011 | By Joe Gordon | Awards, Comics

Dave McKean dons his professorial robes to join the staff at the new Hogwarts! Okay, only kidding – in fact Dave (one of my absolute favourite artists in any medium) is seen here in academic gown (sadly he’s already removed the rather nifty hat that goes with it) after receiving an honorary doctorate from the University of Wolverhampton, having a Doctorate of Design conferred upon him in recognition of  “his award winning illustration and design work.” Well done, Dave, and kudos also the the U of Wolverhampton for recognising and honouring one of Blighty’s great artists. More on the university’s Visual Communication faculty’s blog. (thanks to our own Kenny for forwarding the pic)
