Blank Slate Book Release Update
I spent a big chunk of this year working on my book which will be part of the new Blank Slate releases at Thought Bubble next month (along with some other great titles which you can read about here).
If you read my blog you might have seen the sample copy photos I shared recently. The book is a culmination of eight long years of writing comics and marks a time when I'm planning on some changes in what I do- moving away from self publishing/distributing and concentrating more on other areas of humour writing and illustration that I'm interested in pursuing.
Here is a bit more information about the content of the book:
Take Away by Lizz Lunney
128 pages, 4 spot colours, softcover
Lizz Lunney draws surrealist animals, household objects and items of food, all endowed with the sometimes questionable gift of consciousness, exploring various concepts of life and death in a humorous setting. Sometimes she draws humans. Take Away is a specially comissioned book for Blank Slate that collects all of Lizz’s favourite work from the last eight years, presented alongside lots and lots of brand new content. It’s designed with four sections in four different tasty spot colours for extra dazzle, to give you the best possible experience of Lizz Lunney’s world of existentially silly and serious situations!
Featuring two of her longest stories yet, starring Romantic Bison in an epic tale of love and misunderstandings, and Depressed Cat in a globe-trotting adventure into ennui. Plus lots of short strips, interludes and strange moments with other recurring characters. As if that isn’t enough, unfold the cover and peek under the flaps and you’ll find even more pert and punchy comic strip goodness. Take Away is absolutely packed with comics!
