Plectrums and Cover Art






I designed some new plectrums recently. They are available to order through my Etsy shop. All Etsy orders come with a free mini comic featuring characters from Giant Rhinos In Space.
Don’t forget you can catch up with the first 2 chapters of Giant Rhinos In Space online here. I’m hoping to launch chapter 3 early in the new year!

Birmingham MCM Comic Con



Thank you to everyone who came by my table at Birmingham MCM Comic Con. It was strange doing a big event without Sarah Fogg so thank you very much to Lisa and Shaz for helping out.

I’m hoping to have some table space at the next InZine Fest - 12-5pm at The Pod (Coventry) on Saturday 6th December. See Facebook for more information.

And I’m sure I’ll see some of you in the new year at True Believers Comic Festival!

But if you can’t get to events you can order most of the items on the table from on Sarah’s Etsy Shop or my Etsy Shop.

Thought Bubble 2014







Thank you very much to everyone we saw at Thought Bubble over the weekend! I had a really good time and I’m excited about making new comics.

Sarah Fogg and I made a comic on the way home about something funny which actually happened on Sunday. :’)

I have a table this weekend at Birmingham MCM Comic Con. Sarah wont be there this time - but I will have some copies of the latest issue of What’s The Time Mrs. Woolf? You’ll be able to find table A8 in the Comic Village - there should be a map in the show guide. I will have free mini comics to hand out - the secret password is ‘Do you have a business card?’

If you can’t get to events you can order most of the items on the table from on Sarah’s Etsy Shop or my Etsy Shop.

St. Vincent and Coves





I went to see St. Vincent play at the Roundhouse when I was in London MCM Expo last weekend. The show was absolutely amazing. The audience were asked not to record the show digitally, but I still did a couple of sketches while I was there. I couldn't resist drawing a full illustration one I got home. The last set of sketches are of the warm up band, Coves.

Thank you very much to everyone who came by our table in the Clock Tower at LICAF. Sarah and I had a really fantastic weekend there. Sarah was working on her Inktober drawing behind the table. You should have a look at the 24hr comic challenge blog if you haven't seen it yet. 

We'll be sharing a full table at London MCM Comic Con this weekend. We'll be there Friday-Sunday and you'll be able to find our table in the Comics Village section of the event.

We'll have FREE MINI COMICS to hand out - if we miss handing one to you the secret password is 'Do you have a business card?'

Webcomic News

I’m sorry about all the delays for Giant Rhinos In Space Chapter 3. I was planning to start uploading about this time of year but I ended up with a lot more commissions over the summer than I was expecting. So I’m still not going to set a return date until I’ve got a bit of a buffer sorted.

Thanks for your patience
Sammy

InZine Fest


Thank you to everyone at InZine Fest in Coventry yesterday! I had a really great time despite a recovering headcold. It was good to meet local zine and comics creators and some arty students who passed through.

The next event I'm attending with Sarah Fogg will be the Bristol Comic & Zine Fair next saturday! We're sharing a half table so stock will be slightly limited. We're on time so far to launch the next issue of our music zine This Is Not A Serious Music Publication and the autumn issue of What's The Time Mrs. Woolf?

Greenbelt Gig Sketches and Webcomic News







I went to Greenbelt Festival last weekend and did some gig sketches while I was there. Sketches in order of appearance: The Hackney Colliery Band, Stonoway, Levi Hummon, Dizraeli and the Small gods and Ellie Rose. The Rising sketch features Martyn Joseph, Rory Butler, Heather Hind and Chris T-T.

Giant Rhinos In Space is currently on a chapter break so I can work on other exciting projects such as music zines and mini comics. But it turned out that August was a exciting and busy time for commissions. This has pushed back the starting point for chapter 3. I'm not going to make any promises to when it will return because I don't want to rush and sacrifice quality. Sorry for the delay.


 Dizraeli and the Small Gods with The Beatbox Collective - Never Mind

I thought I'd share some of my favourite music from the festival.

Comica Comiket 2014





Thank you to everyone who came by our table at Comica Comiket! I just wish the library was open a bit longer - I was having too much fun

The next event will be the Bristol Comic & Zine Fair on Saturday 4th October 2014. I will be sharing half a table with Sarah Fogg again so we will be bringing slightly limited stock. But we really love making new things so there will probably be something brand new on the table.

We can also confirm that our table at Thought Bubble will be in New Dock Hall! for further information on events see the blog sidebar.

Hopefully Giant Rhinos In Space will be back online in the autumn. I'll tell you more about that some time in the week.

Manchester MCM Comic Con






 


Thank you to everyone we saw at Manchester MCM Comic Con! It was a really great event and I had a brilliant time at the table with Sarah Fogg. The stormy weather meant it was a soggy convention, but that didn’t seem to get in the way of the fun!

I launched #2 of Giant Rhinos In Space at the event. Most items in the photos are available to order from my Etsy shop or Sarah’s Etsy shop.  (and the Adventure Time/Attack On Titan poster on the far right is by our table neighbour Ryuuza)

The next event we’re attending is Comica Comiket at The British Library on Saturday 16th August! (confirmed events list on the blog sidebar)
