Leamington Zine #6


I made a skateboard comic for Leamington Zine #6. The theme this time was Fall Back/Spring Forward. I think the zine will be launching at Leamington Comic Con which is happening this weekend. If not keep an eye out for the usual detailed stock listings on the LZ Facebook page.

Unfortunately I wont be at the Leamington event because I'm sharing a half table with Sarah Fogg at LICAF in Kendal. We'll be taking some free mini comics to hand out - the secret password is 'Do you have a business card?'

Bristol Comic and Zine Fair 2014


  


Thank you very much to everyone at the Bristol Comic and Zine Fair yesterday! I had fun with Sarah Fogg behind the table drawing glittery make up on some of my Free Mini Comics.

The next event on our comics tour will be The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival (LICAF). We have a half table in the Comics Clock Tower. Please come and say hi. We’ll be taking some Free Mini Comics to hand out - the secret password is ‘Do you have a business card?’. (full events list can be found on the blog sidebar)

If you’re interested if buying some some comics and can’t make it to any of the events they are available to order online through Sarah’s Etsy Shop or my Etsy Shop (which has finally been converted into GBP).

This Is Not A Serios Music Publication Autumn 2014






This Is Not A Serious Music Publication Autumn 2014 is now printed and ready to launch along with the latest issue of What's The Time Mrs Woolf? at Bristol Comic & Zine Fair this Saturday! I’ll be sharing a half table with Sarah Fogg and we will be bringing FREE MINI COMICS & ZINES to hand out to anyone interested. :) See you there!

"It probably seems silly to be printing a music zine at a time when music blogs are becoming a popular alternative. You can listen to the music at the same time as reading the articles and news updates are instant. We realised we don’t have the time to keep up with it all, so last year, instead of trying, we decided to create a music zine together, where we could write about the music that makes us happy! We had so much fun making the first one that we decided to make more whenever we have enough material to fill a new issue. We’ve filled this issue with music themed comics, gig sketches, articles and illustrations. We hope you enjoyed reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it!"

Leamington Zine #5



I drew a small autobio comic for Leamington Zine about getting a haircut. The theme this time was new beginnings. LZ stock listings and online files to past zines can be found on their Facebook page.

InZine Fest


Thank you to everyone at InZine Fest in Coventry yesterday! I had a really great time despite a recovering headcold. It was good to meet local zine and comics creators and some arty students who passed through.

The next event I'm attending with Sarah Fogg will be the Bristol Comic & Zine Fair next saturday! We're sharing a half table so stock will be slightly limited. We're on time so far to launch the next issue of our music zine This Is Not A Serious Music Publication and the autumn issue of What's The Time Mrs. Woolf?

Portrait Commissions


 




Over the summer I did a series of portraits for a personal commission. It was fun designing all those killer clowns. If you would like more information on commissions please visit this page for examples and a rough price guide. Thank you.

I have added some extra comics and zine fairs this autumn, see the blog sidebar for the current list.

Greenbelt Gig Sketches 2014



I went to Greenbelt Festival last weekend and did some gig sketches while I was there. On Friday night I saw  The Hackney Colliery Band and Stonoway preform on the Glade stage.






And on Sunday we went to The Rising in the Big Top which included Martyn Joseph, Rory Butler, Heather Hind and Chris T-T.




I doodled some of my own characters while I was at the festival. They don't have names yet because I'm trying not to get attached to them early in case the story requires design changes.

Comica Comiket






Thank you to everyone who came by our table at Comica Comiket! I just wish the library was open a bit longer - I was having too much fun

The next event will be the Bristol Comic & Zine Fair on Saturday 4th October 2014. I will be sharing half a table with Sarah Fogg again so we will be bringing slightly limited stock. But we really love making new things so there will probably be something brand new on the table.

We can also confirm that our table at Thought Bubble will be in New Dock Hall! for further information on events see the blog sidebar.

What's The Time Mrs. Woolf? Summer 2014 - Pirates!


The preview is from my 2 page comic in the new summer issue of What's The Time Mrs. Woolf?  This time the zine had a pirates theme. My comic is only very loosely based on the theme. You can read more about the zine in pirate slang and learn contributor's pirate names here.

WTTMW? has open submissions for women and girls. If you're interested in sending something the submission information for autumn is now online.
