Chris Riddell at Lucca Comics & Games Festival

Europe’s largest Comic & Games Festival returns to Lucca this October. The 2022 line-up features a host of exhibitions, panels and exciting guests, with Chris Riddell making the journey over to Italy so he can take part. An exhibition of his work, curated by Roberto Irace, is on display at the Palazzo Ducale until the 1st November and features more than 100 pieces of original artworks. With images from Ottoline and the Yellow CatThe Little Prince and some of his political sketches from The Observer, there is something for the entire family to enjoy.

Chris will also be part of two sessions on Sunday 30th October. The first at 10am in the Performance Area of the Games Pavilion and the second at the Palazzo Ducale where he will be doing some live drawing. He can also be found at various times over the course of the festival at the Il Castoro stand doing book signings.

If you’d like to see more of Chris’ illustrations, his most recent work includes We Wish You A Merry Christmas (Macmillan) and The Cloud Horse Chronicles: Tiggy Thistle and the Lost Guardians (Macmillan) which publishes on the 3rd November.
