Music Zine #3





Sarah Fogg and I compile a music zine together roughly once a year called This Is Not A Serious Music Publication. We will print the next issue once we have enough comics, articles, gig sketches, illustrations to fill a new one. These are just some previews of some of the things I've started this year. Cyborg Noodle from Gorillaz, a comic about the Franz Ferdinand tour and Mordecai and the Rigbys VS. Marceline And The Scream Queens. Last year's issue is still available to order through Etsy.

Leamington Zine & Record Store Day


Stale Symphonies are a series of short gag style comics. Most of the stories have been created with a collective zine or anthology in mind. This one has been submitted to the latest issue of Leamington Zine because the theme was music to coincide with Record Store Day. I have also contributed an illustration of local band The Rosenberg Appeal.You can find a list of their stockists on their Facebook page and read past issues online here.

Hourly Comic Day 2014 Mini Comic





I decided to print my Hourly Comic Day 2014, ready to take to Midlands MCM Comic Con in Telford on Saturday 15th February. I will be sharing a table with Sarah Fogg in the Comic Village.

I used my Witchsona illustration as the cover because the character design is mentioned a couple of times in the comic. The comics are also available to order from my Etsy shop.

Hourly Comic Day 2014


Hourly Comic Day is on 1st February every year. People all around the world draw 1 comic per hour they are awake. I have done this challenge on and off for about 4 years.

At the beginning of December I fell of my bike and fractured my jaw, cut open my lip and chin and one of my front teeth shattered. The scar on my lip doesn't really look like a line, but I think it looks different enough to draw it in some way so I decided to draw it in a symbolic way rather than a visual representation.
