Join Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner Jim Smith for an extra keel hour of stories, live drawing, belly laughs and burps! He’ll show you how to draw Barry Loser and his mate Future Ratboy and he might even draw you!

Jim Smith has sold over 450,000 copies of the I Am (Not) A Loser series for which he won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2013.

After he graduated from art school, Jim Smith was spotted by the owner of a small coffee shop chain and brought in to fill the walls of their flagship store with his paintings. He also designs cards and gifts under the name Waldo Pancake. He says the worst thing about earning a living as an artist is that people keep asking whether you’re going to chop your ear off.

He is currently working on his new Future Ratboy series, a spin-off from the Barry Loser books. Future Ratboy and the Invasions of the Noms Noms won the Laugh Out Loud Awards in 2017.
