I’ve been blown away by the responses to my new project so far – below are a few of the tweets that have really made me happy over the last couple of weeks! It’s very encouraging when you’ve embarked on a new direction to find that people seem to be responding to it… when I decided to move away from children’s illustration into comics it seemed like a big risk in terms of my income/livelihood. But I’ve found that I’m so much more inspired and excited about the work, so hopefully it’ll be worth it in the long run. That’s why these messages have meant so much to me!
I got my first review yesterday too on Forbidden Planet International… Richard Bruton said that Katzine was “everything I hoped for and more, a wide variety of fascinating, enjoyable comics, autobio done really well.”

I’ve also recently got the good news that I’ll have a table at both ELCAF and Thought Bubble this year… I’ll debut issue two of Katzine at ELCAF and probably issue four at Thought Bubble. I’m only at ELCAF on the Sunday though, so anyone wanting Katzines will have to make sure to come on the Sunday! I’m also planning several other little items to sell which will be tied in with the style/themes of Katzine…
