Tomorrow is the East London Comics and Arts Festival, I’ll be there selling my wares alongside some proper good talent. My book is still a few months away so I’ve brewed some fresh Teabag Theories for the occasion. Hope to see you there.
Here’s an interview I did for Tiny Pencil about my contribution to issue 3, my tea drinking habits and work in general. I’m chuffed to be a part of it so big cheers to them. The latest issue and others can be purchased here.
In other news, I’m currently in the midst of working on my first book, due out later this year. More details soon!
Last weekend was the Thought Bubble festival in Leeds, a wonderful frenzy of comics in all shapes and sizes spread across 3 huge halls. In addition to my usual wares I had the pleasure of selling Tiny Pencil issue 3, the latest anthology book featuring comics and illustration produced purely with pencil. Alongside my two page tale (called Portrait of an Exorcism) are contributions by Renee French, Barnaby Richards, Isabel Greenberg and Jeremy Holmes to name a few, so it’s well worth a look. Get your copy here.
It’s a case of lens envy in my latest strip for Shots magazine.
Last week I gave a short talk at Process, the monthly workshop and discussion group at Gosh! Comics, about my recent exhibition at The Lakes International Comic Art Festival. A write-up of the event can be found here, including Lorenzo Fiorini’s tips from the great Eduardo Risso and a watercolour demonstration by Richy K Chandler.
This weekend is The Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal. Anyone trying to find respite from all the comics coming to town might head to Farrer’s, the lovely local tearoom, but even that place is going to be filled with the stuff in the form of an exhibition of my work. I’ve also made 100 teabag comics on the secret origin of Kendal Mint Cake and will be giving a short talk as part of the Myriad Editions Quick Strips event. Come along, if only for a cuppa.
The micro-comic-in-a-teabag returns with Teabag Theories 2: The Primordial Brew. This volume explores the origins of life with a tea themed twist and is available now along with volume 1: Gravitea. Go put the kettle on, then click here.
Teabag Theories and a few of my other comics are also available at Impossible Books, a great new online mail-order that specialises in independent and small press comics. They stock the likes of Becky Cloonan, Michael Deforge, Gabrielle Bell, David Ziggy Greene and loads more so I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
