New and Pertinent Things

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. It’s sort of about poo, but mostly about friendship. You can buy a physical edition here, and a digital version here. See a preview of the comic on Broken Frontier here.

 

I did this life size crowd scene mural from my covid sick bed since I couldn’t do it live for the exhibition of Biscuits artwork that the amazing Joe and Nora helped me put together for Hackney Comic and Zine Fair 2021.
They beamed me onto the wall for the exhibition launch through the power of modern technology.

Remember Biscuits is still available from your favourite book or comic retailer, or you can pick up a signed or customised copy from me here

 

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

Natasha Natarajan invited me to collaborate on this live comic at the Cartoon Museum, it was a really cool experience.

I did a mural of some birds and a tree in my friend Katie‘s house. It is too big to photograph, here are some bits.

In summer of 2019 I illustrated a special edition of the Royal College of Nursing bulletin, all about safe staffing levels. It was an absolute pleasure and honour.

I also drew this in Macedonia in 2019, but I still like it enough to keep it here.

Biscuits

Biscuits (assorted) is my first graphic novel, published in November 2020 by Myriad Editions. You can buy the book direct from them here or from your favourite reputable book or comic retailer. It’s very good I think you would like it. 

Cover promo
Here’s the book in real life, plus some original pages – most of the original pages are available for sale, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to buy one.

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.
