On Saturday I had a chilled out Small Press Day visiting Solid Gone Art Fair and then spent the afternoon at Nostalgia & Comics. Thank you to everyone who stopped by my table.

I get a couple weeks off from events and the next show will be Manchester MCM Comic Con on 28th-29th July 2018. I'll have a full table and will be offering ink convention commissions (please come by early if you would like to take it home on the same day). There will be a brand new free mini comic to hand out!

 
 

I had some new sticker designs arrive in the post this week! The characters are from a project I've been developing about a paranormal riot grrrl band called Go Eat Worms. The invisible ghost guitarist has been printed on transparent stock and the mantis shrimp woman is holographic. They are available to order through my Etsy shop.

1 WEEKEND! Glasgow Comic Con and Brum Zine Fest!
 
 

Thank you so much to everyone who visited my table at Glasgow Comic Con and the Birmingham Zine Festival over the weekend. I was so lucky to be able to get involved with 2 really lovely events and see so many friends and meet great new people! Thank you so much to the organisers of both shows!!

If you're Birmingham based and missed the zine fair don't worry! Saturday 7th July is the return of Small Press Day. I'll be back at Nostalgia and Comics with a half table between 1.30-4.30pm. Solid Gone Art Fair is also on in Digbeth on the same day, so I'm hoping to pop in for a browse. Small Press Day is happening up and down the country! Check their website or your local comic shop for more information!

I can also now confirm I'll have a half table at this years Bristol Comic and Zine Fair! For a full and up to date list of events please visit the Events section of this website. If you can't make it to any of the cities listed, please don't forget I have an online shop too.

 

2 Events, in 2 Counties, in 1 Weekend!
2 events!.jpg

I'm going to be at 2 events in 2 counties over 1 weekend! Fun fact: there's 287 miles between the 2 venues! I have a full table at both events but the layout will be tailored slightly to suit the audience of the show so here's some more information ...

GC2018 2.jpg

At Glasgow Comic Con on Saturday, you'll be able to find my table C21 in the corner of the Clyde Foyer. I'll have free mini comics to hand out so please come by and say hi! I'll be bringing all the usual slice of life and music themed comics and zines along with the new risograph prints and plectrums.

Ink portrait commissions were popular at this particular show last year so I'd recommend coming by early to place an order if you would like to collect on the same day. Any extra commissions can be finished the following week and posted and/or emailed to you!

I'll be teleporting back home from Scotland to collect a new box of stock ready for the Birmingham Zine Festival. Again I'll have free mini comics to hand out! This particular event is a much smaller affair so I won't be bringing the giant commissions sign, but I'll make sure to cram as many comics and zines onto the table as possible!

There will be lots of events happening in and around the Zine Festival including the return of Laydeez Do Comics Birmingham on Monday 2nd July! With guest speakers Rhiannon Nichols, Louise Byng and Steve Tannor.

If you can't make it to either Glasgow or Birmingham this weekend, please check the events section of this website for an up to date list. Don't forget I also have an online shop with international shipping available!

London MCM Comic Con May 2018
11.jpg

Thank you to everyone at London MCM Comic Con! I had such a overwhelming weekend working on so many ink commissions. Thank you to everyone who stopped by my table! Special thanks to my friend Sarah Fogg who helped over the weekend!

I've managed to get a last minute table at Glasgow Comic Con on Saturday 30th June through their waiting list. I'm super excited to return this year since I had such a great time in 2017! I'll be taking all the usual comics zines, and free mini comics along with commissions equipment. Last year commissions were busy at this one, and unlike London I wont have Sarah there to help me with the table, so please come by early if you'd like to make sure to pick it up on the same day! Hopefully I'll be able to post out any extra commissions if I run out of time.

I'm excited about the return of the Birmingham Zine Festival on Sunday 1st July! This is the day after the Glasgow show, I've booked the overnight coach down from Scotland so I can still get involved!

Hopefully I'll see you there!

If you're not near Glasgow or London please don't forget to check the events section of the website for an up to date list! I also have an Etsy shop which ships internationally!

London MCM Comic Con

I'm going to be at London MCM Comic Con this Friday through till Sunday. You can find my table CV199 in the Comic Village section of the show which is in the North Hall.

I'll be bringing all my usual comics, zines and fictional band merchandise. I have free mini comics to hand out too!

If you're interested in commissioning an ink portrait at the show, please come by early because I'm unable to take extra work home to finish at this show due to deadlines.

Hopefully I'll see you there!

New guitar plectrums featuring cute Honduran Tent Making Bats

I designed some new plectrums featuring a character from one of my comics. Geenie is the lead singer of a riot grrrl band, she is also a vampire who can turn into a white Honduran Tent Making Bat.

The plectrums are now available to order online through my Etsy shop.

I'll also be taking them to London MCM Comic Con at the end of May. You'll be able to find my table in the Comic Village section of the show. I'll post about my table number when the show publishes their guide!  

If you're not around for MCM (or you're reading this after the show happened) please check the events section of my website for an up to date list of comic cons, zine fairs and events I'll be attending.
