Magic Biro Comic!

Don't forget-This weekend is the start of August and so the start of ONE A DAY COMICS SUSHI!!! A different online comic strip every single day of August (apart from when I forget)

Also, this Sunday is the Alternative press Fair!! Aaaaaannnnd I HAVE A NEW COMIC for the event! just a mini one which will be for sale for £1.50 on the day! (special price if you are coming along!) They will also be in my shop next week for £2! MAGIC BIRO COMIC!

It is a special comic because I decided to throw away the fancy expensive fibre tip pens I usually use and go BACK TO BIRO!! who said the credit crunch was a bad thing?! WOO BIRO YEAH! And comic is printed (photocopied) on to beautiful (putrid) lilac (spew) and pink (puke) paper. I wrote it at 5am a few nights ago so it has some stupid bits like another rap and the start of the Batlizz chronicles but it is also full of exciting stories and a couple of new characters such as Fashion Bear! And on the day it will come with a free biscuit (maybe). Just a plain digestive though, can't go too crazy in this economic climate you know. The covers is also carefully HANDPAINTED by my own fair hands (crayoned in on the bus)

(That's henna on my hand btw)

Oh look here and here and here too, because these people will be selling some cool stuff on the stall too!

Excited? I am.

sorry had to rush that post see you sundayyy!

Firstly- this week reappeared from the ashes!! (However, it needs some work so although you can access it now I plan a relaunch next week!)

"Throughout the rest of 2009, BANTERAID will be staging exceptional music & comedy gigs to raise money for exceedingly good causes. Our first is on 25 JULY, at Birmingham's legendary SUNFLOWER LOUNGE, where we'll be joined by:

Rough Work!

Just a quick post to share some old drawings I found last week. I was talking to my friend recently about how I always like the look of rough work and sketches of ideas for comics/designs more than the final artwork. The scraps of doodles I discovered show this quite well-

This envelope of doodles shows the very first drawings I did of Leaning Rabbit (you can see him leaning at the top and at the very bottom of the paper) It also shows Cheer-Up Rabbit and Block Head Beast and a few characters that never made it any further than this such as Chunky Cat and Show Cat! The "Parc Bleu" at the top refers to a comic strip I did years ago for a music zine I made with friends which was a collective name that I considered as a comic title. I might bring it back one day!

Then here is the initial idea sketch for my website banner (final one below) I like it much more than the final drawing even though it is really roughly drawn I think they have more character and energy to them. And I removed the "Oh Yeah"s for the final one too. Shame!

Tokyo Art Book Fair!!

My comics will be sale at The Tokyo Art Book Fair this coming weekend! They will be part of the mixed booth. I hope to get some photos from someone to put on the blog after (so if you are going please take photos for me!!) I'd love to have been able to go, I will have to start saving for next year perhaps! Oh and check out this drawing by Sachiyo Oishi, it has totally inspired me to do some felt tip pen drawings soon!
