Publishers/agents: come and talk to me about the Noisy Valley

It’s been an amazing year. As the tweet above says, my 2021 Inktober project – where I drew a different protester ever day of the month – led to me putting out my self-published book Sorry For The Inconvenience We Are Trying To Save The World. This sold faster than any comic I’ve ever madeContinue reading “Publishers/agents: come and talk to me about the Noisy Valley”

A comic of Rhondda protest memories: coming soon

This time last week, the lonmg-anticipated trip was in progress and I was sitting in the Workers Gallery in Ynyshir, Rhondda, setting up for my zine workshops! I had such an unforgettable time visiting my exhibition Word on the Street (which still runs until Sept 11) and seeing the gallery for myself. No small partContinue reading “A comic of Rhondda protest memories: coming soon”

Workers here we come!

After months of emails going back and forth, poster designing, conversations about printing, plotting and planning the accompanying activities… Word on the Street opens at the Workers Gallery next week. And here’s the poster translated into Welsh. As the events are part funded by the local council (for which I am very grateful), the WelshContinue reading “Workers here we come!”

Word on the Street

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for ages – but fortunately the Queen of England realised how behind with blogging all her subjects were, and decreed that we should all have a four day weekend to catch up. Here’s the exciting news: my first ever solo exhibition, and it’s at a remarkable place calledContinue reading “Word on the Street”

Success?!

This week I’ve been setting up a new online shop and figuring out ISBN numbers, but there are also some crumbs of interesting content in the post as well. :)

It’s here, yay!

In case anyone was worried, the Protest books arrived yesterday, and they are fine. More than fine actually. I’d even go so far as to say great! I really was beginning to have literal sleepless nights over them, so this is very cheering. You can see a flick-through, at the chipped nail varnished and multi-silver-ringedContinue reading “It’s here, yay!”

Protest, rumbling on

I’m a bit late with this week’s blog post, but in the spirit of ‘never explain, never apologise’, here we go! Great news this morning, as the Lords reject the anti-protest measures Priti Patel added to the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill. That’s great on two fronts: one for UK democracy, and one, muchContinue reading “Protest, rumbling on”

Turns out my entire ability to draw rests on a single pen

I’ve mislaid my Surface pen. Argh! Isn’t it just a symbol of the current age that I am entirely in thrall to one small pen, and that without it I am unable to draw? Yes, sure I can pick up real paper and a real pen, but that isn’t a great deal of help whenContinue reading “Turns out my entire ability to draw rests on a single pen”
