Ladies of the Lakes, part 1

Ladies of the Lakes by Myfanwy Tristram

As long-time readers will know, I often record holidays in the form of a sketch diary.

Now, my trip up to the town of Kendal in the Lake District last October wasn’t exactly a holiday; I was there for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, selling comics. Nonetheless, so much happened in the 4 days away from home that I felt I wanted to record it.

And while my sketch diaries normally comprise just as much text as they do images, it seemed appropriate to do this one entirely in the form of a comic. That partly explains why it has taken almost six months to finish it: the other reason, of course, was that a few weeks in, admin for Draw The Line started taking up all my spare time and I had to put it aside.

Never mind – it’s done now: all 34 pages of it. I’m going to serialise it in 8 parts and I hope you enjoy it.

  1. I love your work so much, your gently funny approach, your perspective, your dedication to making it all happen. Hope to see the figures move into the profit side by next instalment! You can make comics from any topic whatsoever and make them WORK.

    1. Ha, to be perfectly honest, neither relieved nor celebrating but noticing all the bits I could have drawn better! There had to come a point where I just put it online though…

  2. I love this! It’s been years since I’ve enjoyed comics. Here’s another middle-aged woman reading comics created by middle-aged women who are horrified by Brexit. Excellent. I might try to comicise my next trip. Pity I can’t really draw.
