mmmm.jpgMick Devine joined Creative Collaborations in 2008 and has co-authored and produced four very funny shows. Please click the 'Touring Shows' link on the left to see previews of Suitcase Stories, The Lucky Country, The Big Book Show and R*E*S*P*E*C*T. Mick trained at St Martin's Art School in London and has designed for London’s National Theatre, The Theatre Royal Stratford East and for the Olivier Award-winning West End musical Return to the Forbidden Planet. He wrote and produced the sell-out Cinderella- It’s a Panto Jim, But Not As We Know It in 2009 and has had a number of short stories published. Well three then. He continues to hawk the manuscripts of two novels, The Life of Riley and Fish God around a world not yet equipped to recognise his genius. Mick claims to have 'worked' with the likes of Garry Oldman, Mike Leigh, Norman Wisdom, Kenneth Branagh, Iron Maiden and poet Roger McGough but then he did do a lot of minicabbing until Tiffany dragged his sorry backside out of the gutter. He also taught art in London schools for 25 years.

‍Mick runs our Drawing Workshops for schools as well as our Comics, Cartoons and Caricatures workshops in libraries. He was Artist in Residence at schools in the London boroughs of Islington and Waltham Forest and has provided colourful entertainment all over the world with his five-minute party portraits for clients including Disney and the royal family (though we doubt she was amused). MIck is 109.
