Medieval aliens (Mayor graphic novel, s1, p4)

Medieval aliens

With those fingernails, these medieval aliens risk interpretation at the devil end of the spectrum. I am reminded of gargoyles, that staple of gothic architecture which were actually designed to cover water spouts. After all, we’re in the thirteenth century and about to enter the high gothic period in Spain, under the patronage of the current royal line (who we shall meet shortly).

Since leaving the higher education sector I’ve been focussed on thinking about education more holistically – I’m particularly interested in the interface between education and media, but I want to understand better how we can bring our traditional educational institutions to embrace the possibilities that the network and media are opening up. We need to reinvent education to suit the nature of our working lives, and our need to engage in routine lifelong learning. I use my research and writing skills to explore these issues. I consult on education issues and assist postgraduate students with their theses.

As an artist, my new project is Mayor, a graphic novel set in thirteenth century Spain. You can find out more about these activities in my blog:
