The new Big Brown Eyes Collective anthology is edited by Freya, Karis and Emily Lambert, and alongside their own comics also features Ryan Boylett, Mark Brady, Dennis Coyle, Rozi Hathaway, Joe
Latham, Ryan Morrison, Emma Raby, Nathaniel Spain, Sam Taylor, Myfawny
Tristram, Anja Uhren, and Jade Wall.
I’m pleased to have a comic in there too. A wee preview:
The anthology is on
sale at Thought Bubble, Bristol Comic and Zine Fair, and the Lakes
International Comic Art Festival, before going on sale online here.
What a thrill it was this week to work alongside the magnificent
Scottish Ensemble to present a new comic story entitled, “Orchestras”.
The event was the latest DeeCAP (Dundee Comics Art
Performance) held at the Dundee Comics Creative Space, and featuring fellow
local comics creators Zu Dominiak, Andy Herd, Damon Herd (no relation), Norrie
Millar, and myself!
I took the opportunity to premiere a new comic I made specially
for the event, designed to work as a comic in its own right and as a
performance piece accompanied by the Scottish Ensemble.
Here is how it turned out on the night. I hope you enjoy it…
I think you can see how much I enjoyed hearing the music
from that vantage point. A truly exciting event to take part in.
Many thanks to Tom Stewart of That Comic Smell podcast for
“We continue our
appreciation for Jack one more time.
We discuss what the
publishers have done for his birthday celebrations. Also what some of
our particular "Best" moments of Kirby are.
We run as a 3 man
team for about the first 20 minutes waiting for everyone else to
arrive, in the time we talk about the great "Ann Nocenti" ,
the general layout and folks that were at the Glasgow comic con. We
also speak about the elusive Previews catalogue and Giuseppe has a
run in with a mystery shop online.
All this and more on
the only podcast to bring you Kirby crackle in the ears... think
about how that works for a second.
