"Mr. DOZO" Debuts

Well, after about a year, I’ve finally gotten a basic story together for Mr. DOZO, the story of a down-on-his-luck clown. I’ll be posting some elements of it online at the end of this month, so watch this space!

Also this month, I was invited to speak at the monthly London Comic & Graphic Novel event called ‘Laydeez do Comics’ (see here).

It was a simple 10-minute presentation where I spoke about my background in Aerosol Writing, inspiration that lead me exploring animation as a means of visual storytelling as well as my current graphic novel projects. It was a great way of sharing with like-minded people, show-casing ideas and gauging public interest. Plus, despite the title, I felt very welcomed and supported. So many thanks to Laydeez do Comics, those in attendance and Sonja Todd for blogging this.

On the night, I was also joined by two other talented artists/speakers, Cliodhna Lyons (pronounced ‘Cleenah’) and Steven Appleby (known by many for his regular strip in The Guardian), so it was indeed an honour.
