Talking UFOs: more pages in process from Plans We Made.
Well, I’ve finally launched a new website. It’ll probably need a few tweaks here and there, and I’m still working on the mobile version, but here it is for now. I’ll continue to maintain the tumblr, but all the shop and other functions of that old site have moved here.
Finally, there is a little more information about the forthcoming Grimalkin Press book coming soon, as well as some new pages. I’m also hoping to announce some more details of a new collection, coming this Spring from a Japanese imprint, very soon.
I’m pleased to announce that my friend Jason Martin are working on a split zine together. I’ve been a fan of Jason’s for a long time, and I’m really glad we’re working together. His autobiographical comics and zines are things of understated wonder, always far greater than the sum of their parts, touching and honest. We’re hoping for a summer release.
Here’s a rough from one of my stories:
I’m working on a full length book for Jordan Shiveley’s Grimalkin Press. The book doesn’t have a title as yet. It’ll be oversize in its dimensions, with around 200 pages of stories, short and long. The book itself is a collection of recollections about growing up in a small UK dormitory town.
I’m excited to announce that UK comics publisher Avery Hill Publishing will be releasing a collection of my work from 2011 – 2012. It’ll comprise SMOO 4 -6, as well as selected anthology work and an essay by me about comics, drawing and self-publishing.
As these zines are on their way out of print, I’m delighted that the work will continue to be available in book form.
More news on this soon.Avery Hill Publishing press release
