Just a few bits and bobs of news to announce…
Firstly, I’m super excited that Lost Tales will be a part of the Edinburgh Book Festival, Trading Stories events. This time round, Lost Tales features a tale from Scotland : Riben, Robin and Donald McDonald. Every author at the book festival will receive a copy of the tale in their goody bags. But if you’re not a Book Festival Author, don’t fret! It will also be appearing in The Phoenix, issues 190-192.
Speaking of the Edinburgh Book Festival, I have the pleasure of attending again this year. I’ll be part of two events:
Saturday 29th August, 11:45, Phoenix Comic Workshop: CorpseTalk (SOLD OUT EVENT)
Join the Phoenix, Britain’s leading weekly comic, and professional comic writer Adam Murphy as he guides you through the decomposing world of Corpse Talk. This strip exhumes the lives of famous, historical figures such as Joan of Arc, Mozart and William Wallace for a bit of forensic examination. Get top drawing and storytelling tips from Adam and produce a comic strip of your own.
Monday 31st August, 17:30, Comic Consequesnces. (Tickets still available!!!)
Favourite author Vivian French challenges comic creators to a lively game of consequences. You choose the starting point for each story and then the writers must take it in turns to move the story along. Come and watch some brilliant live drawing and see how comic makers Laura Ellen Anderson, Adam Murphy and Gary Northfield fare when you throw your craziest ideas at them.
And last but not least…you asked for it and here it is!!!! CorpseTalk: Season 2. The official launch date is September 3rd. If you liked season one, you’re gonna LOVE season two! Order now! (If you order from my shop, I can draw a custom corpse of your choice inside the book).
