Midlands MCM Comic Con 2015







Thank you to everyone who came by my table on Saturday at Midlands MCM Comic Con. It's only the 2nd time I've had a full 6ft table on my own like this so I'm just working out what to do with the extra space. This time I had a pile of ink drawings for people to sieve through, including some of the portraits I've been drawing for my new music blog. I updated my personal commissions web page in case anyone was interested in ordering something similar.

I have a table at Birmingham MCM Comic Con in March, I might be sharing with a friend so there is a chance the illustrations will be unavailable next time.

Anniversary Commission


I recently did a personal commission of a 1 page sample for a couple's anniversary. Click here for more information on commissions or email sammyborras@gmail.com

True Believers Comic Festival 2015











Thank you to everyone who came by our table at True Believers Comic Festival last Saturday! It was really great chatting to friends throughout the day. Our table was under the shadow of the balcony and it made us feel a bit sleepy - hahaa!

The soot sprites were given to us by our table neighbor Collette J Ellis - Thank you! they are super cute!

My next event will be Midlands MCM Comic Con in Telford this Saturday 14th February. I can also confirm tables at both Birmingham MCM, and London MCM this spring.

Birmingham MCM Comic Con November 2014


Thank you to everyone who came by my table at Birmingham MCM Comic Con. It was strange doing a big event without Sarah Fogg so thank you very much to Lisa and Shaz for helping out.

I’m hoping to have some table space at the next InZine Fest - 12-5pm at The Pod (Coventry) on Saturday 6th December. See Facebook for more information.

And I’m sure I’ll see some of you in the new year at True Believers Comic Festival!
But if you can’t get to events you can order most of the items on the table from on Sarah’s Etsy Shop or my Etsy Shop.

Thought Bubble 2014







Thank you very much to everyone we saw at Thought Bubble over the weekend! I had a really good time and I’m excited about making new comics.

Sarah Fogg and I made a comic on the way home about something funny which actually happened on Sunday. :’)

I have a table this weekend at Birmingham MCM Comic Con. Sarah wont be there this time - but I will have some copies of the latest issue of What’s The Time Mrs. Woolf? You’ll be able to find table A8 in the Comic Village - there should be a map in the show guide. I will have free mini comics to hand out - the secret password is ‘Do you have a business card?’

If you can’t get to events you can order most of the items on the table from on Sarah’s Etsy Shop or my Etsy Shop.

Bimba & I Double Dare Ya


I have a Stale Symphony comic in Bimba #2 - this issue has a Witch theme!



And I have an illustration of The Gossip in I Double Dare Ya! - A Riot Grrrl Inspired Super Zine!

Both books are A4 and filled with some really cool comics, illustrations, articles. Thank you Donya Todd & Julia Scheele for including my work.
