Hourly Comic Day 2018













Hi! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year. It was a busy time of the year for me with a couple of January deadlines. I also took part in Hourly Comic Day - a challenge to draw 1 autobio comic for every hour you're awake on the 1st February. I printed mini zines which are now available to order through my Etsy shop.

On the day I visited a new event in Digbeth called Kaleidoscope and sketched some of the bands while I was there. The event showcases local music and art on the 1st day of each month. I'm going to be taking my music zines to their next event on Thursday 1st March. 

I've also just confirmed a table at Birmingham MCM Comic Con on 17th-18th March! You'll be able to find me in the Comic Village section of the show.

I'm hoping to get more events booked, a lot of shows seem to be leaving everything relatively last minute this year.

Manchester MCM, Desert Island Discs Fanzine & Not Another Comic Con


 


Sorry I've had a busy couple of weeks in a row but here are some updates of what I've been up to...

Thank you to everyone at Manchester MCM Comic Con. Special thanks to Nikki Stu and Naniiebim for offering to share their tables with me! I had a really fun weekend. I created new Free Mini Comics to hand out at this event, I really hope you all liked them!







I recently compiled a new open submissions music zine through my blog That Music Zine. The theme was Desert Island Discs, so '8 songs you couldn't live without and why'. It was printed by Rope Press and I'm super pleased with how the yellow and neon pink in mixed together on the cover! I got sent a great variety of entries from illustrators.

Contributors A-Z: Ben Norris, Claire O’Brien, Charlotte Bailey, Chaz, David Kirkham, Dinosaurs For All, Drew Sumner, Giuseppa Barresi (AKA Ryuuza), Hari Conner, Jason Garrattley, Nathan Hillustration, Old Bort, Petitecreme, Rodrigo Martínez, Sammy Borras and Verity Hall

I've added the new zine to my online Etsy shop. The Grimes Fanzine is also back in stock.




Thank you to everyone at Not Another Comic Con in Birmingham on Saturday. It was a first show for the organisers and they did a great job! It was a really lovely day :)

My next convention will be Thought Bubble which has moved to the end of September. There isn't an official map just yet, but I'll be sharing a table in the Millennium Square Marquee, which I believe is the largest. Please come say hi! And look out on the blog side bar for an up to date list of events

Glasgow MCM Comic Con



 

Thank you so much to everyone at Glasgow Comic Con this year! The crowd at Scottish shows are always so friendly and enthusiastic about comics it's great. I took some example portraits of my friend Sarah Fogg - thank you to everyone who ordered a commission! I was stuck on the coach most of yesterday and couldn't draw because of motion sickness, I was able to post most of them out today but I've got a couple to finish tonight which will dispatch tomorrow at the latest.

I'm going to be at Nostalgia & Comics (Birmingham) for Small Press Day this Saturday. There will be a change over of different creators throughout the day - I'll be around in the morning slot between 10.30am-12.15pm so I can go draw bands at Godiva Festival in the afternoon.
