Crouchfest and confessions

It's been a busy old week or two, starting with CECAF, for which Sean and I spent a Sunday painting backdrops we never used ...
followed by the day itself which was a rip roaring success: a wonderfully lo-fi fest of good vibes and great small press comics in a friendly venue with a BAR. Click for review.
Tuesday evening saw Sally Anne and myself heading to Kennington for a special tour of Sarah Lightman's Graphic Details exhibition of comics by women with some of the artists represented. We got to meet Diane Noomin and Miriam Katin!
Do try and get down there before December 13 – you will be rewarded by some amazing work in a fabulous gallery. And it's FREE.

CECAF is NOW

Tomorrow the very first CECAF will be taking place in Crouch End from 11am to 6pm. The brilliant Sean Azzopardi has assembled a bunch of comic creators to stage an event and cheer us all up in these dark wintry days. Such talents as Gary Northfield, Gareth Brookes, Oliver Lambden, Paul Rainey, Sally Anne Hickman will be joining Sean and myself along with many others. Check out the website or CECAF'S facebook page and find out who else will be there and how to get there. Oh and it's FREE. Do pop down – we'd love to see you.

Lost dog found

Look what just came in the post. I loved this book when I was little and Bettina's loose illustration style was one of my many inspirations. My copy of Pantaloni got lost many years ago, so thank you interweb and Marchhousebooks.
I have tried and I know I don't yet come close to her use of colour, but now I will persevere and push through the laziness.

Punks in Paris

We girls are off to Paree again soon. Here we are in my contribution to Julia Scheele's forthcoming Anthology of all things Punk and female! It's called Double Dare Ya and you can still contribute to the project if ya like. And it's not too late to vote for ChiChiRaRa as best shop in East Dulwich either. I thank you.

Punk Power

Finished and sent off my contribution to the uber-talented Julia Scheele's crowd-funded Double Dare Ya! Rrrrrriot Grrrl project. You can still contribute via Indiegogo to make it an even bigger better book! My strip also features a guest appearance by my old mucker from the punk days, the equally amazing Heather Johns whose ChiChiRaRa vintage emporium has just been nominated for the Time Out Love London Awards as one of the best shops in East Dulwich.

Saturation celebration

A soggy Bank Holiday didn't dampen our fun as we celebrated the blessed Lucy and attended a poochy beauty pageant. 24 years ago Lucy made her appearance in a Carnival heatwave, but this time only Ned braved the relentless rain and got soaked to soca, while we chose the shelter of Spitalfields Market to coo over furry fashionistas - my personal favourite being Goldilocks and her three tiny bears for concept and cuteness. Now we all want a dog...
I have been back at the drawing board , having designed a logo for Sean Azzopardi's upcoming festival CECAF, while getting on with my Strumpet submission.
