Lost dog found

Look what just came in the post. I loved this book when I was little and Bettina's loose illustration style was one of my many inspirations. My copy of Pantaloni got lost many years ago, so thank you interweb and Marchhousebooks.
I have tried and I know I don't yet come close to her use of colour, but now I will persevere and push through the laziness.

Punks in Paris

We girls are off to Paree again soon. Here we are in my contribution to Julia Scheele's forthcoming Anthology of all things Punk and female! It's called Double Dare Ya and you can still contribute to the project if ya like. And it's not too late to vote for ChiChiRaRa as best shop in East Dulwich either. I thank you.

Punk Power

Finished and sent off my contribution to the uber-talented Julia Scheele's crowd-funded Double Dare Ya! Rrrrrriot Grrrl project. You can still contribute via Indiegogo to make it an even bigger better book! My strip also features a guest appearance by my old mucker from the punk days, the equally amazing Heather Johns whose ChiChiRaRa vintage emporium has just been nominated for the Time Out Love London Awards as one of the best shops in East Dulwich.

Saturation celebration

A soggy Bank Holiday didn't dampen our fun as we celebrated the blessed Lucy and attended a poochy beauty pageant. 24 years ago Lucy made her appearance in a Carnival heatwave, but this time only Ned braved the relentless rain and got soaked to soca, while we chose the shelter of Spitalfields Market to coo over furry fashionistas - my personal favourite being Goldilocks and her three tiny bears for concept and cuteness. Now we all want a dog...
I have been back at the drawing board , having designed a logo for Sean Azzopardi's upcoming festival CECAF, while getting on with my Strumpet submission.

Dig that vibe

I'm back from parts foreign where, as you can see here, I have been working hard... and not just on my tan.
Flexing my comic muscles again, I will be appearing with my fellow Dessinators this Saturday 16 August at Comica Comiket at the British Library.
And while I am posting it turns out I should have been at the Ladeez do Comics curator's tour of the Comics Unmasked exhibition. Sorry, Nicola. I am such an arse.

Doctor's orders

Last week saw the launch of Ian Williams' much anticipated excellent graphic novel The Bad Doctor in the Oh so appropriate setting of Barts Pathology Museum. Wine was imbibed, speeches were spoken and readings read among jars of weird and wonderful body parts. Get well soon, Corinne!
I have been doing the occasional shift at our local independent cinema for several weeks now – gets me out of the house. The bijou Lexi in Kensal Rise is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine, goat cheese popcorn and a movie. And it's all for a good cause!
