It’s here!!!

Exciting news folks… I’m finally ready to launch the first issue of my new on-going project Katzine!

My zine is 24 pages, black and white with a colour cover. Comics, writing and drawing… but mostly comics. It will contain a mix of personal stories, fiction and non-fiction. Katzine will come out quarterly, and I’m offering a subscription so that if you like it you can subscribe for a year’s worth of zines and you’ll get them in the post as soon as each issue comes out. Subscribers will get a discount on the price of the four issues.

Here are the first pictures! It’s beautifully printed on a paper that I love called Tintoretto.

One more thing!

To celebrate the launch of this project I’ve done 30 miniature original plant drawings! The first 30 orders that I get will each receive one of these original pencil drawings, signed by me and packaged in a protective sleeve. The drawings measure 8.5 x 6cm. So hurry if you’d like to qualify for one of these with your order!

 

Issue one will officially come out on the 23rd of March.

The writing/illustrating process blog tour!

I was asked to take part in this blog tour by San Francisco-based illustrator (and fellow gecko fan) Jessica Lopez who does beautiful nature-inspired illustrations. Thanks Jessica!
