I had time to draw just for fun today, so I made a comic about Alkaline Trio! One of the main things I always remember about that album was it smelled really good- the inks used to print the CD cover. After my moment of rose-tinted nostalgia I remembered that actually being 15 was pretty miserable, and I got a bit down about that. Maybe that’s why I liked this album in the first place!
My copy of the Adventures in Comics 3 newspaper arrived the other day, which included my comic on the theme ‘The Great Tree’ (the one on the left). I realised that this is actually the first time I have submitted a comic to someone else’s publication. Drawing comics is the fun part, nice to have someone else do all the work for once!
The next sample from issue 7 is from ‘Bruises’ by Gill Hatcher.
You can now buy all the issues from Forbidden Planet Glasgow! Or simply order online here.
Image from my TGC 7 story. It’s about domestic violence, teenage-parent relationships and family denial, so yeah, quite different from stories about Robot Bears and haunted museums.
First (almost) complete page from my story Bunny Behind the Moon. Haven’t decided what I’m doing with the classroom posters yet. The plan is to have it out for Glasgow Comic Con in the summer.
Come to our issue 7 launch party! We’re going for a 90s nostalgia arts and crafts theme, which means friendship bracelets and badge-makers. Plus the usual drink n draw and mini comic mart with our pals from the local comic scene.
Facebook event here.
Commissioned illustration for a PhD guidebook. Speaking of PhDs, I finished the complete draft of my thesis today! 60000 words. So while my supervisors check over it I’ll have a little more time than usual, which I’m going to use to pick up on my Bunny Behind The Moon project, which has been on the shelf for a while.
Issue 7 has been sent to the printers! Featuring the usual mix of long-time contributors and new comic artists, and a stunning cover design by Penny Sharp, we think this issue is one of our best yet. Keep an eye out for sneak previews over the next couple of weeks, and for details of our Glasgow launch event.
Last year I designed a tote bag for Team Girl Comic. It’s so cool to see people wearing your artwork! We’re on our second batch already, and you can now order them online for just £5 from the TGC website.
My entry to this year’s Adventures in Comics competition and exhibition. The theme was ‘the great tree’ so I decided to tell my story of North Lanarkshire’s oldest tree
