Big Read Events

Illustration by Chris Sav


Chris Sav is coming to Sheffield Hallam on January 29th 2020, 2-6pm in Adsetts 6619.  Chris  is a artist, illustrator and writer who creates comics focusing on men's mental health issues.

About this Event

After gaining a BA Hons in Fine Art from Southampton Solent University, Chris created Disappointman for the male suicide prevention charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). Dissappointman is a weekly comic series about men's mental health issues which can be found here. He also exhibits his illustrations, installations and films around the UK and Europe.

He will be holding a talk in Sheffield Hallam University's library which focuses on how creating cartoons and comedy help him to understand and deal with his own mental health, and how highlighting the absurdity of everyday life can make it easier to live within it.
