Goth Anthology - Bookworm and Gothgirl

More character designs for the Goth Anthology! These two are for a slice-of-life strip about the trials of being a goth. They’re an updated version of some characters I drew in 6th form for a comic called ‘The Adventures of Bookworm and Gothgirl’.
Gothgirl is called Lillith Robinson and Bookworm’s surname is Wheeler, but I haven’t worked out a first name yet. 
Wheeler was too busy reading to shave her legs.

Goth Anthology - Occultist Schoolgirls

Character designs for one of the goth-themed comics I’m making with Sammy! We’re putting them in a Goth Anthology which we hope will be ready for London MCM. (Is it still an anthology if it’s only two people?) One of my comics is about some occultist schoolgirls, who summon the ghost of former pupil who was murdered there.
These are Nastasya Nikolaiovna Zossimova, Angela Deborah Deacon, and the ghost of Charlotte Lawrence. Their school uniform is surprisingly goth-friendly…

We'll have all sorts of lovely things to sell! The Autumn issue of What's the Time, Mrs Woolf? our brand new Goth anthology and activity book, mini-comics, mini-zines, postcards and notebooks and sundry other trinkets...

I hope some of you can come and see us!

This is the cover and a couple of preview pages from a 6-page mini-comic called Flight. This is another one that was originally for Bear Pit Zine (this time issue 6), but I printed 25 copies of an extended version to sell at conventions.

What's the Time, Mrs Woolf? - Summer 2013

Another project I've been working on is the Summer 2013 issue of What's the Time, Mrs Woolf? Here are a couple of the articles I did for this issue. (I also did the cover and overlay this time.)

Stepping Stones

This little comic was originally drawn for Bear Pit Zine no. 5, which had the theme 'Expedition'. Due to an admin problem it got left out, but I printed it in the Summer 2013 issue of What's the Time, Mrs Woolf? instead.

I think despite the fact that scanning it was a bit of a nightmare, this is still one of my favourite things I've made so far this year.

Music Zine - Summer 2013

One of the projects Sammy and I have been working on is a new issue of our music zine, This Is Not A Serious Music Publication. Of all our projects, this is probably the most fun to make. Although I admit I had more trouble thinking of material this time, probably because I don't keep up with music as diligently as Sammy does! I hope I'll be able to come up with more, because I'd love to make more of these in future.
