Do What You Want is a zine about mental health compiled by Ruby Tandoh and Leah Pritchard to raise money for 4 relevant charities and non-profit organizations. I wrote and drew a short comic about my own experience with health anxiety in particular. There's a long list of great illustrators on their website, so it sounds like it's going to be packed full of great illustrations to go along side interesting content. Preorders will open on Big Cartel from the 3rd March with the zine launch on the 28th April.

I created a music zine with Sarah Fogg called This Is Not A Serious Music Publication. We discovered it was featured in Kerrang Magazine this week. The zine can be ordered through Etsy www.etsy.com/shop/sammyborras

I did an interview about music comics and zines for Pipedream Comic's most recent issue of The Pull List. The magazine has a great selection of articles and is available digitally or in print through their website.

It was Hourly Comic Day last week - an annual challenge to produce one journal comic per waking hour of the day. I've printed my comic into a mini zine like in previous years. It's now available to order through my Etsy shop. I can confirm I have a table at both Birmingham and London MCM this year. I've applied for a couple events in 2017 so check the blog sidebar for an up to date list. Thank you!

This preview image is from a comic about Arthur Russell I created for Good Comics Dead Singers Society Volume 3. I had a lot of fun listening to his music and looking up radio and film documentary's for research. Broken Frontier have posted a great review about the project - you can read it here. Good Comics have a table at True Believers tomorrow in Cheltenham or you can order online through their Big Cartel shop.
