My wares + BICS

The above is a picture of my recent wares (complete with some natty new display materials... I love the double postcard stand!). :D Pictured are:

* The Great Silkie of Sule Skerry (standard sized book)
* The Great Silkie of Sule Skerry (new pocket-sized version!)
* A6 postcard - "Wish"
* A6 postcard - "I eat my greens"
* Off by Heart (on poetry) - a new mini-book (details coming soon)

This past weekend I had the pleasure of selling this humble array of items at Birmingham International Comics Show, on a table with work by other wonderful folks from the Midlands Comics Collective. BICS is a great event, but as quite a bit of what's sold there is superhero/sci-fi related or quite masculine, I always feel a bit like a fish out of water at first!
Nonetheless, I met some great people and got my hands on this amazing concertina by Micah Lidberg (Nobrow Press). <3 <3 I've wanted it since the guys from Nobrow gave a talk at my university earlier this year, so I couldn't resist when I saw it at the Gosh! comics stand with 20% off the price.

Up next is Handmade & Bound, where me and the other girls at Whirlygig will be attending to sell lots of lovely bits and pieces. :) If you're free and can make it to London on the 21st of November, please come along and see us!

I eat my greens

My scanner seems to hate gouache (I keep spending ages trying to get the levels close to the original image!) but I like painting with it. And I love tortoises. =D

Painted in gouache.

Thinking of making this one into postcards or a print. :)

Silkie - now available to buy!

I've just made up some more copies of The Great Silkie of Sule Skerry, and they're now available to buy online!

Click -->HERE<-- for Folksy listing
Click -->HERE<-- for Etsy listing

I'd recommend Folksy myself, particularly if you're in the UK, but I know more people are on Etsy so that's an option too. :)

While I'm here, maybe I should finally get around to linking to my favourite version of the song? Yes, I think I'll do that.
