Wall painting in the studio, exhibition preparation.

For the exhibition in college I decided to paint almost life size figures, from the festival, onto the wall of the studio. It was a really good opportunity to produce something on a larger scale, as my comic is such a small scale. I also wanted to set the scene of the story, and cover the entire view of people looking, to reflect the feeling of being overwhelmed that the main characters experience.

The Festival Comic is real!

My comic has been printed! I was lucky enough to have the cool dudes at Avery Hill Publishers print it for me. We met when I took part in Comica. They're a small, independent publishers, producing work pretty similar to mine, so I thought that they would be the perfect publishers to print my comic. I'm really happy with how it came out, they did a brilliant job. It was really worth putting all of that time, effort and tears into it, to be able to create something more substantial then my previous comics. 
It's selling online on the Avery Hill website:

Strip for chicks on comics exhibition.

Hey y'all! This is a strip that I made for Chicks on Comics, a website for lady comic artists. They're having an exhibition in a Feminist gallery in Berlin next month, and I was asked to submit a piece. The theme is spring/feminism, so the strip is about my recent break up and feeling better at the start of spring. (Cheesy yet true). 
Making coloured comics is really challenging, because it's difficult to keep a consistency and not make the image overbearing. I happy with how this went, I shall try this more.

Research into main characters for festival comic.

Personal sketchbook drawings

Here is some of the drawings I've been doing in my personal sketchbook, as you can probably see the paper can't deal with water colour, because it's thin and lame. But I still really like these drawings. At the moment I'm continuing to play with colour and line a lot.
