We are delighted to announce one of our 2024 Guests of Honour is none other than Glyn Dillon!

Glyn Dillon (Born 1971) has had a wide-ranging career working as a comic book artist and author, a storyboard & concept artist, a director and more recently as a Costume Designer. Glyn started his career in comics at the age of seventeen, working with writers like Peter Milligan, Alan Martin and Neil Gaiman.

After seven years of comics he changed tack and spent the next fifteen exploring the world of film and television, often working at Jim Henson’s studios, ‘RSA Films’ (Ridley Scott Associates), and also ‘Zombie Flesh Eaters’ the studio of Jamie Hewlett, the artist and co-creator of Gorillaz. On his return to the world of comics Glyn wrote and drew the award-winning graphic novel ‘The Nao of Brown’ for which, in 2013, he won ‘Best Book’ category at the ‘British Comic Awards’. It has successfully been translated into seven languages and the French translation, ‘Le Nao de Brown’ also garnered him the 2013 ‘Special Jury Prize’ at the world renowned ‘Angoulême International Comics Festival’. 

In more recent years Glyn has teamed up with Costume Supervisor David Crossman, together they were Co-Costume Designers on ‘SOLO: A Star Wars Story’, continuing his relationship with the Star Wars universe, having previously been Co-Costume Designer on ‘Rogue One’, as well as Costume Chief Concept Artist on ‘The Force Awakens’ and ‘The Rise of Skywalker’. Then working alongside Dave Crossman again, together they designed the Batsuit for Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’. Most recently Glyn worked again with Gareth Edwards, the director of ‘Rogue One’, this time designing robots for his Sci-Fi spectacular ‘The Creator’. 

In May 2022 Glyn had his first London solo exhibition, entitled ‘Who Am I Now?’ which featured a collection of oil paintings, all reflecting on the impact of his brother’s death. Glyn is the younger brother of comics legend Steve Dillon.
