A new Katzine! The boat issue.

A new Katzine! The boat issue.

Shop

My second zine of 2016 is here! (Well, almost. It’s due back from the printers next week, but I’ve listed it in my shops already so feel free to order now if you don’t mind waiting a week for dispatch!)

Subscribers will get their copies as soon as my delivery comes next week.

This issue starts with a short story called ‘Darkness Falls Again’ – I really enjoyed writing this one. I wrote it during work shifts at the theatre… nothing like long hours sitting doing nothing in a cloakroom to inspire some story ideas! There are also some of my regular features, including my favourite ‘Sergio Talk’ yet. 
When I was in the Applecross Peninsula in Scotland in April, I tweeted/instagramed some sketches of my amazing rental cottage and the scenery as I was drawing them. In this issue of the zine I’ve collected most of my sketches from the trip, several of which I haven’t shown anywhere else yet. There’s also some extra detail I’ve written about each one.

There’s also an exploration of how I’ve always been obsessed with boats, and some sneak peeks at rough art from my graphic novel!  Below are a few more previews of some of the pages. 
If you’d like to order a copy, you can find the listing on etsy here:

Rock & pop comic

I did a quick one-page comic for Tim Bird’s rock & pop – various artists project. Tim’s been doing a regular comic on the theme of music and memories that you can see here: www.timothybird.co.uk/comics/songs and he invited other artists to join him. Here’s mine. See the other entries by various artists so far here: www.variousartists.wordpress.comContinue Reading

Holiday sketches

Holiday sketches

Last week I got back from a week and a half in Scotland where I managed to do a bit of sketching. My friend Katie Green (who is a fantastic illustrator/writer/zine-maker) accompanied me for most of the trip. We rented a cottage on Skye and had a week of unexpectedly good weather, walking and lamb/calf/bird-spotting.…Continue Reading

Cornwall sketches

Cornwall sketches

I recently spent a week in Cornwall and tried to do a sketch every day. I managed to only miss one!               I love the little fishing harbour where I stayed – watching the fishing boats and walking along the coast. The water there is unbelievably green. I love…Continue Reading
