graffiti magazine

as mentioned some posts down a while ago piero bagnariol asked me for some contributions for graffiti 76% magazine number 20 and a show he was organizing in october.
i was very pleasantly surprised and honoured to be asked if he could use my drawings for the cover of the magazine. when a parcel arrived in the post the other week i could see how it had all come out. apart from the drawings and the 2 page comic i submitted there is some beautiful and hilarious work by powerpaola whose work graces the poster below and who is also a colleague over at chicks on comics. i have nothing but respect for her draftsmanship as well as her story-lines.

some other interesting and/or beautiful contributions came from marielena, maja vaselinović, júlia zavagli, shiko, carolina mello, d'salete and alves amongst others.

you may be forgiven for thinking that this blog doesn't have much to do with comics. a lot of the posts i put up don't directly relate to comics. when i think of comics i cannot see them separate from everything else that surrounds me. every thing i see, read, do and experience is informed by everything else i see, read, do and experience. it's easy to get distracted by a museum visit or a newspaper article, which to me is as relevant as the latest comics publication.

some people have informed me of their discontent at not being able to see some more of my latest comic efforts. as eager to please as any woman: here are some extracts from cowards/carnivores. for anyone who has never seen my mini's before and wants to use their mind's-eye to do some visualization: they usually fold into an accordion style booklet, every panel is a page so to speak, and you read down. cowards/carnivores consists of 32 panels in total. 3 panels are grouped onto one piece of a3 paper, so even though the first two groups of 3 panels follow each other here they are presented separately.

panels 1-3

panels 4-6

panels 24-26
