I just tried something new: I sat in an empty room and gave a presentation to no-one at all, while recording it.
It’s the talk I gave at the Pen and Ink comics and book art festival in February, and it’s about a) making comics even if no-one asks you to; and b) changing the world through comics.
I run through my three most recent comics projects – Draw the Line, the protest book, and The Nosy Valley – each of which tries to change the world a little bit, and for each of which I used a different method to get it to audiences.
You can see the video – and 7 other posts about the process of making comics – by becoming a £3 patron of my Patreon.
I start a bit stilted – well, it’s hard to talk naturally to your computer – but I do warm up eventually. And you can also enjoy my very shouty cat getting outraged that the door’s closed, a little way through. Hope you enjoy!
