DiY Aye!

I'm off on holiday, but just had time to draw these flyers.
I'll probably be quiet for a few weeks cos of spirit-squeezing work, so hello for the rest of April, see you in bonny May!

Well I didn't get round to doing a plot, but at least I spent two happy afternoons cutting out robots I drew as a kid, 25 years ago! And the memories did come back to me, which is a magical feeling.

What did Freeborn John do next?

I did this quiz-handout for the Wor Diary launch event.
It wasn't very good, but here's the heads I did for Freeborn John the Mackem

Postcards and Collaborating by post.

1. My friend Chez is starting a project of posting 30 snippets of her day on postcards to friends around the world who will then respond in kind. I think it's a lovely idea and I might copy it.

Electronic 'likes & dislikes' 'status updates' & the like are fine, great in a way, but at the same time all they really say is: "I am looking at a computer screen". You get to express a different side of yourself when you write on the back of bus tickets, gig flyers or seed packets.

2. As of today, I am hoping to start a comic dialogue with an old friend from primary & middle school, who I haven't done anything with for 15 - 20 years. By comic I mean drawn, not amusing!

I write to him explaining that I'd like to post a cartoon/narrative to him, and have him reply in kind, until we build up a possible booklet. But the great thing is right now I have very little idea what he's doing, and I only got back in touch with him cos my parents know where his dad lives, I posted him my 'zine from my childhood', and he emailed back to say hi. So we might even get to know each other again, by drawing cartoons back and forth to each other! Or, of course, he might not reply...
