Return to The Lakes

Today I’m off to Kendal for The Lakes International Comic Art Festival. I’ll be selling my usual wares including a special edition Teabag Theory that claims Kendal Mint Cake might make a suitable snack on the moons of Saturn. Sort of. It was a brilliant festival last year and there are loads of great guests making an appearance (including Scott McCloud, Boulet and Becky Cloonan) so I’m chuffed to be a part of it.

Orbital Exhibition

Very chuffed to be taking part in an exhibition at Orbital Comics alongside Cristian Ortiz and James Harvey. There’s a launch night on Friday 8th August and it runs till 7th September so hope to see some of you there. Details of the launch event can be found here.

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.

Tiny Pencil Interview

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!

Merry SFXmas! My festive strip for Shots magazine, featuring Hollywood’s next big turkey. Previous strips can be viewed here.

Shots Strip 5

My recent Halloween themed strip for Shots magazine, Dawn of the Director. A fairly accurate portrayal of what I’m like at ludicrously early hours on set.

Tiny Pencil

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.

Shots Strip 4

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.

Lakes Festival

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.
