I have been writing an autobiographical comic book about my experience of mental illness and creativity – and have now finished the book! In celebration of this I have published a short extract of the finished comic on my site. You can find it by following the link here: ‘The Butterfly Stage’.
On a further note – I am going to be giving a presentation of this comic book as well as my other illustration and comic book art in London sometime in the next month. This event will be hosted by the wonderful Laydeez Do Comics! I will post the dates and other details once confirmed on my blog and if you are in the area then it would be great to see you there. x
Funnily enough today was rather windy and rainy… But there were some really sunny days early this week which made it feel like springtime was on the way!
Have a lovely Sunday everyone x
Reaching a milestone on a project! A moment of celebration before plunging on again.
Writing and drawing can be a solitary business and I was reminded by a friend that it is important to mark these moments of progress along the way.
Hope everyone else’s creative projects are going well! xxx
Sometimes you need to let something go to begin something new…
Have a lovely Sunday everyone xxx
My pencils were all really short at the end of a big drawing stint. I liked seeing the visual evidence of how much I had used them! Hope you all have creative Sundays ahead of you xxx
Found myself frequently looking at the work of Louise Bourgeois over the last few days. Her way of expressing what she discovered in and around herself has been the ‘love’ of my week. x
Lots of drawing and sketching this week. The little figure in the middle is a caricature of my mum who has shared so much of her own inspiration with me, and certainly inspires me in return! (Thanks mum!) x
