One of 2000 AD‘s creators who should need no introduction, Cam Kennedy has been the artist on some of the most seminal stories in the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, including Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, and The VCs.
A huge influence on generations of comic book artists, Kennedy’s work merged the gritty style of war comics with a knack for design that gave his work a dynamic – although grounded – simplicity.
In a fascinating talk recorded at the University of Dundee, the veteran artist discusses his career, work, and process while drawing one of his trademark images of Judge Dredd.
