New in November 2021, Poogurtory is a 32 page spinoff comic from Biscuits, presenting extracts from the virtual conversation of Danni and Rosa during the first year of the pandemic.

I did a Colossive Cartography recently (2021). With coots. It’s kind of a big deal, but I keep wanting to spell it collosive, it’s two sses not two ells. Anyway there are more of them and they are awesome learn more here.

It is the culmination of a lot of overlapping ideas over several years, begun with my illustration project #3point52billion. It is also a sort of love letter to London, and to its women, and their courage.
It features the overlapping stories of a number of characters including Hana – a perpetually optimistic supermarket employee, Sarah – who is spending the summer doing a data project on playgrounds with her young daughter, and keeping a secret, Clara – who has been thrust backwards into a bisexual love triangle, Maya – oversharing on public transport, Susan, Keerthika, Marissa, Jess, Almas, Samarah, Lucy, and more besides.
