AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Read all about my journey through comics to creating Biscuits (assorted) here.

This is where I post new things I’ve been up to recently, for more examples of my work please browse through the portfolio posts above, and check out my blog posts in the feed to the right

jenny robins - my eyes needed a rest comic

I did this in Macedonia in the summer, getting a well earned break from drawing my comic, by drawing a quick comic.

Also in the summer 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’ve finished the first draft of Biscuits (assorted) as of February 2020, but I still have a lot of work to do, you can see some pages here.  It’s going to be a big beautiful book sooooooooon.

That situation all started with the feminist poster I did for One Beat Zines. It combines a lot of my favourite things and ways of working, i.e. drawing words and collage and people and even a bird. I didn’t expect it to spawn a whole big project and a book but that’s the way it goes guys, creativity breeds creativity and briefs breed, um, personal work.

On the bird front I have some really juicy ink drawings over on Artfinder including this swan piece that got a lot of love. I wrote a blog piece about how drawing birds is like drawing faces after this here.

Don’t forget you can also buy things like zines and sketchbooks from me on Etsy.
