You get my thoughts as I do the work; and then you get the actual work itself

There are two new posts up on my Patreon.

The first is public and free for everyone to read. It contains thoughts about drawing from historic photos, the ageing process, and how words can affect the way you think of visuals. It also has the link to an incredible Ken Russell film. Read it here.

Pages of pencil crayon sketches, scattered onto a floor.

In the second post I’m actually sharing a strip from The Noisy Valley, which I haven’t done in public before. And this still isn’t in public because it’s for patrons only! I aim to be sharing a strip a month.

This one tells Jenny’s story. Jenny is a 70 year-old woman who has always been law-abiding and responsible; therefore she was pretty surprised to find herself deliberately going out to get arrested, sitting with a friend who attached herself to a gate with a D-lock around her neck.

And arrested she was. You can find out the cause that was important enough for her to put herself through this ordeal, and the surprising effect it had on her house’s interior design, via this post (become a patron to view it).
