Misc Fits & Mancstercon 2015










Over the summer I've been working on a new series of slice of life short stories called Misc Fits. You can follow The Sea Apple online with a new page at 12noon every Tuesday and Wednesday via Tumblr, Smack Jeeves or Tapastic. The print copies of the first story arrived early and are now available to order through my Etsy shop. I also have a up to date list of confirmed events I'm attending in autumn in the blog side bar - starting with ICE (International Comics Expo) in central Birmingham on Saturday 5th September. I'll be sharing a table with Laura Watton and you'll be able to find us at table 4 in the 'Innovate' room.

I'd like to say a big thank you to Laydeez Do Comics for the opportunity to sell my work from their table at Mancstercon yesterday and to my parents for the lift to the event. Thank you to everyone who came by to chat or buy comics - the event was lovely and I had a nice time chilling out and meeting some new people.

I'm going to be doing a presentation at the next Laydeez Do Comics Birmingham event. I'll be taking along some of the original Misc Fits pages for people to look at and talk a bit about my current comics process. I don't have the full details on the other 2 presentations yet, but the event itself will be at 7.30-9.30pm on Thursday 1st October at the Green Room Cafebar (opposite the Hippodrome in Birmingham City Center - not far from New Street station)

Personal Commission - The Smith's


I have a price list online for personal commissions - ideal if you'd like to give someone a portrait for their birthday or anniversary or something specific to hang on your own wall. I can send an original ink drawing through the post and/or a full colour digital file for you to print. If you would like comic pages commissioned there might be an extra charge for the time it takes to plan and thumbnail page layouts and add lettering. (contact information available on the price list page)
