Comics

Jenny has been a comic book lover since her awkward teenage years (Rumiko Takahashi, Vertigo, Unlimited X-men, hours spent copying half understood images from French magazines) and has made various small comics in various publications (Dirty Rotten Comics, Solipsitic Pop, Over the Line, Meanwhile…).

Currently, she is working on a longform shortform project, which is to say a series of overlapping and interlinking stories under the working title of Biscuits (assorted). The project earned a Judges Mention from the Laydeez do Comics Prize for an in progress Graphic Novel this March (2018) and is currently shortlisted for the Myriad First Graphic Novel Competition. These stories are based on her illustration project of drawing women coming out of cookie cutters (because we are all individuals isn’t it?) which can be seen under the hashtag #3point52billion. (biscuits because the stories are set in London and we say biscuits not cookies mostly isn’t it?). In the medium term, these will be in a book which you can buy.
