To celebrate the imminent release of my new zine, SMOO 8, and the Kickstarter for my new book, PLANS WE MADE, I thought I’d reflect on some of the comics I’ve made over the last couple of years. They’re all available from my new online shop. Finally, SMOO 8!
SMOO 8 (pre-order: released March 2015)
This is the latest issue of memoir zine, SMOO. It tells the story of a year, from September 2013 to September 2014. It begins on Theodor Roosevelt Island, in Washington DC when I was visiting for SPX, and picks a story across Peru, pubs in Bristol, and ends in Brooklyn. It was undeniably one of the weirdest periods in my life, and this zine tries to get at that sense of the push and pull of a year, of moments and events, of coming out the other side.
The idea for the zine – this sequence of stories, these ideas – has been kicking around for a while, but it wasn’t until this January that it finally felt like the time to write them. I drew the zine in about a week, a little scrappy, but honest drawings.
It’s a 36 page, A6 zine with a fold-out central spread.
