Ball and Chain

I had an eight hour train journey to get through yesterday so I thought I’d try out the brush pens I got for Christmas and made this:

The train was kind of wobbly so the comic is too, in parts, but you get the idea. Some weird stuff went down in that house!

Melt

My entry to the Edinburgh League of Comics’ December zine swap. The topic was ‘Melt’! I didn’t have a lot of time or creativity this month so there’s no fancy folding or stapling, just an autobiographical comic about a regular experience I have through the winter months. I love winter and I get a bit over-excited buying nice scarves and gloves and coats and jumpers, so it really annoys me when the temperature fails to drop to my expectations!

Trapper

This comic has been inspired by my obsessive watching lately of ‘Life Below Zero’ – a documentary about people living in Alaska – on Netflix. My inner misanthropist (not so inner really) loves the idea of living alone in a cabin in the far far north, with a wood stove and a sauna and lots of books. My inner realist on the other hand knows that I wouldn’t be able to kill an animal and would therefore starve/be eaten by bears in about three minutes. So I’m having to content myself with daydreaming and drawing comics about it instead! Click on the image if you want to see it a bit closer up.
