June Update! Zone 1! Adventures in Science Kickstarts! Hocus-Baloney merchandise! etc!
Righto, just got a copy of Zone 1 through the post. It’s an anthology title by Guernsey-based cartoonists apparently galvanised into action by meself and Dave Hine’s appearance at the Guernsey Literary Festival a couple of years back. Aw shucks. There are bits to see on contributor Mikal Dyas twitter: https://twitter.com/mikaldyas , and publishers Black Moor Press have a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/blackmoorpress/ . Worth a shufty, if you can find it, not least because Dave wrote an intro, and I drew a cartoon to open the book:
Next up: Happy to be part of Adventures In Science, the Dead Canary comic that I’ve got five Matt Fitch- scripted pages in. It also includes art by some pretty fast company, including amongst others, Krent Able, Shakey Kane, Caspar Wijngaard, John Aggs and Jacen Burrows! Blimey. This fine looking SF anthology is Kickstarting right now. So go fund it! More money equals more stories, people! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadcanarycomics/dead-canary-comics-presents-adventures-in-science?ref=nav_search
Also, in a fit of capitalism, I have created a Redbubble page where you can buy my art, or some bits of it, anyway, printed on mugs, T-shirts, dresses and duvets. I’m not kidding. This is gonna be beautiful, (*sucks cigar, coughs a bit*) so drag your scintillating money over to https://www.redbubble.com/people/marxtafford70 and buy yourself a miniskirt and a pair of leggings.
I heartily endorse this product or service.
On the drawing board; clearing the decks for Lip Hook, mainly, which is going to take over the next year of my life, I’m creating lettering fonts and designing characters and settings and titles. But i’m also finding the time for a few Bad Bad bits and pieces awaiting that story’s eventual compilation….
Oh, and there may be fancy prints in the offing.
But that’s all for now.
