Veripathy is my new comic that launched at ELCAF this year. It's a collection of short stories exploring a world in which technology allows us to directly experience the feelings of another. The stories examine the lives of those who use the technology and the consequences of knowing what it feels like to be someone else. You can see some pages from it here and buy a copy here.
Very happy to be a part of ELCAF's line-up of events this year, as well as the three day festival itself, from 10th-12th June. On 6th June I'll be doing a workshop on the theme of long lost objects at Hackney Central Library. More info on that and the rest of the festival can be found here.
Very chuffed to announce that Lost Property is nominated for best comic at this year's British Comic Awards. Proud to be among such fine work, big congrats to all the nominees. The awards take place next Friday at the start of the Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds, I'll be there all weekend selling copies of Lost Property and other goods in the New Dock Hall, table 93. Come say hello!
This weekend is The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival. A local tearoom called Brew Brothers is exhibiting some of my work as part of the Windows Trail and I’ll be there sipping brews and signing books on Saturday from 2pm. There are some brilliant guests this year including Darwyn Cooke, Kate Beaton and Seth, so it’s well worth the trip.
This summer I was fortunate enough to be involved in a couple of great events, the first of which was the Edinburgh International Book Festival. I co-hosted a late-night comics-making extravaganza alongside fellow Nobrow authors Joe Sparrow and William Exley. We managed to get the entire audience involved, resulting in hundreds of pages being drawn and displayed. The second event was a signing at the Whitechapel Gallery, as part of the London Art Book Fair. As autumn approaches the comics festival season begins, so more news on this soon…
