Happy new year all. So, this blog has been neglected for a month but that's about to change. Lots of new work to start uploading here and some exciting commissions have been coming my way over the past couple of weeks which I'll hopefully get to talk about soon. For now, here's a few updates:
How to Date a Girl in 10 Days Issue 3 I've posted the first 5 pages of this concluding issue below. I'm really interested to hear what people think as the style has developed since Issue 2 and I'm curious to see what you all make of it. I'll start posting the rest of the issue as and when I'm happy to show the pages. Having said that, I'll stop short of posting the whole thing here so some people buy the printed version!
New printings of Issue 1 and 2 will be on their way soon too. With all new covers and nicer paper stock.
Appearances After taking a break from conventions during 2008, I'm going to start booking a few shows and return to the crazy world of comic-book peddling. I'll miss the first few months so I can concentrate on getting the comics to a standard I'm happy with, so I'll sadly be missing the UK Web and Mini Comix Thing. The first convention will be the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) in May. That will be the first opportunity for everyone to pick up Issue 3 of How to Date a Girl, but I may have a small launch in the UK beforehand.
After TCAF, I'll be attempting to appear at most of the UK festivals inbetween working on my next comic project.
Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Crohns Disease Due to such a fantastic reaction to this comic, I'll be getting a nice hard-copy version of it printed up before the festivals. Thanks to everyone's continued support of this comic. It means a lot.
Artwork for sale Fancy beating the credit crunch and owning some original art? To help cover costs of all these reprints and new comics I'll be taking to the printers over the next few months, I'm selling the original pages of How to Date a Girl. The artwork is framed and will cost 150GBP (plus postage). If you're interested, please email me at ventedspleen*at*hotmail.com with the details of the page you're keen on. Some pages have already been reserved or sold.
Phew! I think - after that slightly mercenary last piece of slef-promotion - that's it. Thanks for continuing to check out and support my work, and watch out for new art here soon!
