What do you get when you mix tea with the mysteries of science? Teabag Theories, my new micro-comic-in-a-teabag. Volume 1: Gravitea will be on sale tomorrow at the Comiket fair at Central Saint Martins. There will be biscuits.

I was asked by Alex Fitch, presenter of Resonance FM’s always excellent Panel Borders, to produce an illustration on the theme of movie monsters for Electric Sheep Magazine, the online mag dedicated to left-field and cult cinema. I chose four characters, all of which appeared in films that were a huge influence on me: Nosferatu, Medusa (Clash of the Titans), Beetlejuice and Pinhead (Hellraiser).
I really enjoyed revisiting these characters and the process inspired a creation of my own for the comic that is currently part of the Score and Script exhibition, on at the Centre for Recent Drawing until 15th December. See the previous post for more details.
The finished illustration for Electric Sheep Magazine can be seen here.
Very chuffed to be part of the Score and Script project created by the brilliant cartoonist John Miers for his PhD.
John produced a single page comic and asked a host of top-notch artists to interpret their own version of the comic, based on either a written description – the Script – or a diagrammatic description – the Score. The results, a total of 30 individual comic pages, including my contribution based on the Script, are being exhibited at the Centre for Recent Drawing until 15th December.
It’s fascinating to see how each artist responds to the same brief with such wildly different outcomes, so it’s well worth a visit. More details can be found here and I’ll be sure to post some snippets from my page soon.
