Sadly, Adam & Joe have taken another break from 6Music on Saturdays. I'd always have their show on as the start to my weekend and it always managed to make me burst out into embarrassing fits of giggles. A highlight of my week - as sad as that sounds. So it's a shame to see their recent run on the station end so soon. But luckily, Andrew Collins and Josie Long have stepped in for five weeks and their show is a lot of fun. I was listening to the first show last week when conversation turned to things people found in the street - leading Josie to relate Jack Noel's strip from Solipsistic Pop 2 and give a nod to the book while doing so. It sounds extremely silly, but I can't tell you how excited I was to hear mention of the anthology on 6Music in that slot.
Josie asked me if I'd give her a couple of comic artists to recommend the following week and the producer of the show also asked if I would do an illustration for them to use of the website. I was more than happy to do both so here's the illustration:
I suggested Luke Pearson, NoBrow Press and Kristyna Baczynski as the artists to highlight. Josie was wonderful enough to mention them, the illustration, and Solipsistic Pop again on the show this week, leading to another Saturday of rolling my wheelie chair around the studio in celebration (ah, if only I was kidding) - you can listen to it - this week only - here (listen to the whole delightful show, but if you're pushed for time it's at 2 hours 15 mins in).
In other news: It's been quiet here on the blog lately. Mainly due to the amount of work I have on. Got lots to show, although some of it can't be revealed until a lot later in the year sadly. Will upload what I can over the next few weeks. Suffice it to say, I think I've been doing some of my best comic and illustration work over the past few weeks and can't wait for people to see it all.
