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”
We go to London and accidentally engage in artwork about suicide. Plus, more comics developments.

Paula Rego exhibition, Graphic Medicine conference, Creating Women and a way of working.
Last week, progress on Satin and Tat was unchanged, and this week it is still the same, stalled on page 73.

Not least because of its excellent name: extra biscuits to whoever thoughtContinue reading “The Inking Woman”
I’m really pleased to say that I have a small illustration in the Illustrated Women in History exhibition and the accompanying zine. The exhibition is up in Swindon Central Library now, and runs until the end of April. You can buy the zine here. Its maker, Julie Gough, has for some time now been doingContinue reading “Illustrated Women In History exhibition”
