Thanks to everyone who came by my table at Thought Bubble! I had a lovely time bumping into so many friends over the weekend.
I've got a full table at Coventry Comic Con tomorrow - so I'll be bringing all the usual comics and zines plus a folder of ink drawings! I'm offering ink portrait commissions starting at £15. I've still got hundreds of free mini comics to hand out at events so please come say hi! You'll be able to find me at Table 24.

Thank you to everyone at Manchester MCM Comic Con. Special thanks to Nikki Stu and Naniiebim for offering to share their tables with me! I had a really fun weekend. I created new Free Mini Comics to hand out at this event, I really hope you all liked them!
I recently compiled a new open submissions music zine through my blog That Music Zine. The theme was Desert Island Discs, so '8 songs you couldn't live without and why'. It was printed by Rope Press and I'm super pleased with how the yellow and neon pink in mixed together on the cover! I got sent a great variety of entries from illustrators.
Contributors A-Z: Ben Norris, Claire O’Brien, Charlotte Bailey, Chaz, David Kirkham, Dinosaurs For All, Drew Sumner, Giuseppa Barresi (AKA Ryuuza), Hari Conner, Jason Garrattley, Nathan Hillustration, Old Bort, Petitecreme, Rodrigo Martínez, Sammy Borras and Verity Hall
I've added the new zine to my online Etsy shop. The Grimes Fanzine is also back in stock.
Thank you to everyone at Not Another Comic Con in Birmingham on Saturday. It was a first show for the organisers and they did a great job! It was a really lovely day :)
My next convention will be Thought Bubble which has moved to the end of September. There isn't an official map just yet, but I'll be sharing a table in the Millennium Square Marquee, which I believe is the largest. Please come say hi! And look out on the blog side bar for an up to date list of events

Thank you so much to everyone at Glasgow Comic Con this year! The crowd at Scottish shows are always so friendly and enthusiastic about comics it's great. I took some example portraits of my friend Sarah Fogg - thank you to everyone who ordered a commission! I was stuck on the coach most of yesterday and couldn't draw because of motion sickness, I was able to post most of them out today but I've got a couple to finish tonight which will dispatch tomorrow at the latest.
I'm going to be at Nostalgia & Comics (Birmingham) for Small Press Day this Saturday. There will be a change over of different creators throughout the day - I'll be around in the morning slot between 10.30am-12.15pm so I can go draw bands at Godiva Festival in the afternoon.

Thanks to everyone who came by the Laydeez Do Comics table at the Birmingham Comic Art Show on Saturday. It was pretty quiet but a nice opportunity to meet some more local creative people.
I'm really looking forward to Glasgow Comic Con this weekend - You'll be able to find my table L08 in the Lomond Foyer. I'll be taking all the usual comics and music zines, plus copies of Charlotte Bailey's new Janelle Monae Fanzine. I'll be offering Inked convention commissions starting at £10. I'll also be taking some neon markers with me in case you'd like a portrait as an Inkling or Ghost Buster! If you're low on budget don't worry about it and please still come say hi - I have free mini comics to hand out!
Thanks, see you there!

Thank you to everyone at London MCM Comic Con - I had a surprisingly busy show compared to recent conventions. Special thanks to Sarah Fogg for helping SO MUCH and remaining upbeat despite a horrible head cold! It was a lot of fun doing convention ink drawings throughout the weekend. I'll probably start offering them at future shows :)
My next convention will be Glasgow Comic Con on the 1st July! I have a list of events in the blog sidebar, but if you can't make it please don't forget I have an Etsy shop.

Giant Rhinos In Space #5 arrived from the printers today! The comic includes chapter 5 plus a gallery of illustrations in the back. I've made up bundles and everything is ready to launch at London MCM Comic Con this weekend! My table will be on row G of the Comic Village (there isn't a map just yet, but check my Twitter for directions nearer the day)
I keep an up to date list of events on the blog sidebar - but listings are already on my Etsy shop if you can't make it to those particular cities. (International shipping available)
Thank you to everyone at Afroflux Comic Con at Birmingham Hippodrome on Sunday. It was great to catch up with friends and meet some really lovely people!

I had a really great time at DIY Cultures yesterday helping out on the Do What You Want table with Clio Isadora. We only had one box of DWYW zines and they all sold - so thank you very much to everyone who bought a copy! Preorders are open for a 2nd print run of the zine, and an ebook is available from the website.
I'm going to be at Afroflux Comic Con this Sunday at the Birmingham Hippodrome. The event is Free entry so please come say hi! I will have more table space this time, so I'll bring a bigger selection of comics and zines. I've got plenty of free mini comics to hand out!

A couple of anthologies I worked on over the winter months arrived in the post this week. Do What You Want is a beautifully illustrated zine compiled and edited by Ruby Tandoh and Leah Pritchard. Their online shop sold out in the first day or so of launch, but the ebook version is now available. All profits are split between relevant charities. I wrote a short comic about my personal experience with clinical anxiety/hypochondria and how it effected my ability to plan ahead.
The Great Anthologee Hotel is a landscape comics anthology compiled by Nathan Hill and printed by Rope Press. I drew a sort story about a woman who takes advantage when she is automatically logged into the wifi with her ex boyfriend's passwords and bank details. It was interesting creating layouts for landscape pages.
I'm helping out on the Do What You Want table at DIY Cultures next Sunday. I should have copies of the Hotel Anthology available from my table at Afroflux Comic Con and London MCM Comic Con later this month.

Artist Super Market/Rope Press created this brilliant paper mache comic island at Grand Union as part of Digbeth First Friday. I regularly print risograph music zines with Rope Press and was asked to bring along some comics and zines for the installation. You can also see Nathan Hill's Hotel Anthology on the right hand side of the photo. It was great to have a little flick through before the comic is ready for distribution.
