I've always tried to keep a balance in my work between drawing, collage, toy making etc. however recently i've found myself drawing more and more and more. The past 6 or so months have been pretty rough for me (for various reasons) and I've recently found drawing to be an incredible release of emotions and a form of therapeutic escapism. I've always been vocal about how my work is my way of having fun, so it has been pretty interesting to see it take on an alternate, albeit similar role for me. Above are a selection of these drawings which i'm collecting (along with others) in a new zine Therapy which will be published through my new small press Jazz Dad Books. Following are recent sketchbook pages, a comic about waiting, a print made for The Pendulum and a small collage I made just for me. I'm looking forward to getting back to playing, experimenting and having fun over the next few months.
I've been drawing lots recently; ideas for new projects
this year and more. From the top: 3 drawings for a book,
a comic written by my buddy Dave McMillan for a Jazz
zine we're working on, a little promo for Jazz Dad Books
my imprint i'm starting up (much more on this soon!),
some sketchbook pages, and finally bits of collage that
got turned into postcards for Postcard Club.
Some new and recent work! I seem to be working on lots
of bits and pieces at the moment. From the top: a gallery
drawing, sketchbook page, collage fun, a sad comic,
a 2 page comic I made for Often And Mistakes Dog Comics 2
and a comic about confidence for A Concert for Bad People,
a new collection of my short comics coming soon!
Some recent drawings! These started out as character ideas
and concepts for a new collection of short comics i'm working on
called A Concert For Bad People (more on that soon!). I think now
I might make another small zine of them and some more!
Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, and has a happy new year!
