HOOTing New Year

Happy new year to you all!
The last few months have been doodle packed and extremely busy! There will be much more to share in the coming year, but in the meantime I give you Hoot! in it’s full glory, if you want to pickup a print copy, along with a bunch of other fantastic stories, grab 8: A Kid’s Book Anthology. The guys over at the illopond are hard at work on a second anthology based on Steampunk, the stories are looking very exciting, go take a look!

‘They called me the hyacinth girl’ – page 7 of my graphic interpretation of ‘The Burial Of The Dead‘, the first quarter of ‘The Waste Land‘ by T.S. Elliot which is featured in issue 22.1 of the Gulf Coast Literary Journal. You can check out the whole thing by picking up a copy of the magazine, which also features cover artwork by me!

A Handful Of Broken Images

Out at the end of this month is issue 22.1 of Gulf Coast, a journal of literature and fine arts. This issue features a comic interpretation of The Burial of the Dead, the first quarter of The Waste Land by T.S. Elliot. I was very excited to be asked to create this 12 page interpenetration of Elliot’s poem, the whole process was fantastic fun, presenting a very interesting challenge.

I am very pleased with the results, which can be seen in the magazine (and on the cover!) or in some samples on the Gulf Coast website. The newest journal also contains an article by Sean Bishop on the growing acceptance of comic art and it’s ability to communicate complex narratives, you can read that on the website too! I will post some pages from by Burial of the Dead on this blog over the new couple of months, but if you want to see it complete and any time soon, you just have to pick up a copy of the magazine!
