Starting a New Story



Here's two rows of panels from a new story I am starting to draw. I've done eight pages now. It's not got a name yet.

I haven't forgot 'The Woodsman' but I am still leaving it a while long before I do the final edit. Then I will be less precious about the drawings and get them better. It won't come out till next year.

Ghost Comics Glasgow Little Report


On Saturday I had half a table at the Ghost Comics Festival in Glasgow. I'd never been to a comics show in Scotland before. It went well in the end. It was a good show and well organised. It was more like the zine fairs I've been to than I was expecting, with a lot of zines and prints, but with a very international crowd of exhibitors, Kus had a stall and Stripburger and there lots of other exhibitors from Europe. I should have took more of my zine like comics along, and a few less big books. I didn't sell anything till half two so I was getting worried but then it was busy for the rest of the day so I was happy by the end. This was the first show for many years where I didn't really know anyone there so that was a bit odd. I missed having someone to moan to when I was feeling worried early on. It was good to be selling comics to new people though instead of getting a bit lazy and just having a nice chat, though its always fun to catch up with people. I did some trades with the other exhibitors and got some good stuff that I will read once I recover.

I was feeling pretty rough all weekend as I had caught a nasty cold the week before, so I was very snuffly and a bit groggy all day, but I was alright once I got some sales in and starting talking. I sold all my contributor copies of Simon Moreton's 'Lettuce Bee' zine which was good. My best seller was the 'Ragnar the Cheesemonger' comic. It was three hours each way on the train so that was a long day, it would have been easy but there were loads of train cancellations and delays due to flooding, which made it a bit worrying. Thanks everyone who had a look at my stuff!

Victoria Lomasko - Other Russias

This is a very good book I picked up in a charity shop, I hadn't heard of it before but it had a recommendation quote from Joe Sacco on the back so I bought it. It is a illustrative / comics reportage book about modern Russia. Victoria Lomasko travels round Russia talking to people and drawing really nice portraits of them. She attends the trials of Pussy Riot and other show trials, meets some sex workers in a grim city, goes to a juvenile prison and meets striking truck drivers. It's really good. Here's a Guardian article about the artist.

I got my contributor copies of the Simon Moreton and Ali Bamford edited zine 'Lettuce Bee' today. It's very good and has a great line up. I have a two page story in it, of drawings of Winter Hill, and a one page pinup page of a gnome. Simon is selling it on his website here. Here's the cover and the contributors page so you can see who is in it.
