It’s been months in the planning, but Two Birds is now a reality, and you can buy it online here.
A 40-page collaboration between me and Zara Slattery, Two Birds contains 15 full-colour strips.
If you enjoy the work I publish here on this blog, here’s your chance to own it for yourself – nicely collected together in print form (and here’s a shout-out for Comic Printing UK, who brought this glossy booklet into the world).
Zara’s work shares many of my own sensibilities but reflects her own beautiful, lyrical style. We think our strips go together rather nicely.
And why ‘Two Birds’ for a title? Because that’s what we are. Two chirpy birds.
Salon of Rejects event
Also – don’t forget that I’ll be at Gosh Comics in London this Wednesday night, along with three other creators who contributed to the Salon of Rejects comic.
I’ve put together a really fun talk and overall I think it’s going to be an interesting event – consider yourself invited!
Ooh look, what have we here? A lovely, shiny high-quality comic with one of my strips in it, that’s what.
It’s a sumptuous, perfect bound 28-page comic featuring cartoons by six creators, including me.
Buy it here!
Why ‘Salon of Rejects’? Because these are all entries to the prestigious Cape/Comica/Observer Graphic Short Story contest that didn’t scoop that top prize.
Or.. er, any prize.
But we still think they’re pretty fab. So, like the artists rejected from the Paris Salon, we’ve cocked a snook at the establishment and set up our own display. And now it can be yours!
In this volume you’ll find four-page cartoons by:
Huge thanks to Tom Plant, whose idea it was, and who did all the donkey work in getting it printed (via the ace Comic Printing UK, who are patient and helpful and recommended).
So, buy it online now. I also hope to be selling it – and the project I’m currently working on with my mate and AMAZING illustrator Zara Slattery – at a couple of comic fairs this year.
