There were quite a few girls at the event today who said they used to draw and who no longer do. Buy a sketchbook ladies your voices need to be heard!
Met lots of interesting people and caught up a bit with old faces and gave out my Britney fliers.I'm happy.

http://nualacmurphy.bigcartel.com/ OMGZ an online paying method! I really don't understand the internet, I just use it for 'social' networking.
Buy this. I've extended the previous pages of the 'Contagious' diseeease story...I cheated ok?! I didn't make everything from scratch but it's all blossomed into something juiicier than a fried chicken chain 24 pack o nuggets with bbq sauce. You want this shit. There's coke dust in the pages, or something ( yeah, I don't get drugs either).
Mad Men quote of the week-
This week: Heroin
Don: So, what's it like?
Ex hippy girlfriend: It's like drinking a hundred bottles of whiskey whilst someone licks your tits.

Hello boys and girls ( if anyone is really reading this) I am now living in East Lahndahn. Most inspiring. I'm working on some stuff for the upcoming Alternative Press Fair on the 28th Novemberhttp://www.alternativepress.org.uk/. Maybe I'll do a launch of my Contagious thing at some point too ( hint: Mr Chicken) , I want to extend the story to a full length thing,- need to get a crack on.
Also managed to get a mini internship at the awesome London Miles Gallery for the new show http://www.londonmiles.com/ which is opening next week. The group exhibition is called 'The Idol Hours' and feautures reworkings of classic paintings by contemporary artists. London Miles is pretty lush as it specifically spotlights illustrators, comics and graffiti artists and pop surrealist types- all the lowbrow low down and dirty artscummers. I've admired this shit for a while now. 'Citin times! Now if somone could bathe me and sing me to sleep before my ridiculously long commute to work in retail tomorrow, that would be maaahvellous. Laters!xxx

I went to Made, I talked to people, I drank cider and sold some envelopes with drawings on and a few other bits. Lowe is getting her Theda publication put in a library zine collection. Some people like our work. Max's friend crossed out the 'cakes' in a sign that said '2 cakes for £2.50' and wrote ' balls'and put it over his flies. Some people were annoyed about this. Umm, it was a weird day. It was in a 'club' which looked more like a weird small village hall and it was mainly scenesters, artists and scenester artists. Also, I find it weird when people start filming you but don't say anything about it, and become very self conscious about the conversation. I also finally met Vicky from Xerografix and see her screenprinted paper which also features my Jay Z strip. We shared a table :). I also met the London 'comix are the new rock n roll' people and talked bollocks to them. They were nice. We got a group portrait drawn by a girl who was filling in at the illustration photo booth and said' i used to do illustration but i can't draw'. I liked it. She drew patterns all over us. I talked to Johnson about God.

This will be featured in a book of writing by Ian Morgan which will be available to buy at 'Made' in Tunbridge Wells in, ooh, about 3 weeks... I will also be selling day 3 ( and possibly 4 )of 'Day One' written by Clare Lowe, drawn by moi. And... a smidgen of work all written and drawn and coloured and smudged and printed and sat on by myself. At the moment I have a half formulated story called 'B-Bird' and a few odd pictures and such.If you have any wisdom on the enchantment of girls by birds, or about blackbirds and magpies in general, don't hesitate to bore yourself and me to death by passing on the indispensable information.
It'll probably end up in a mini comic mish mash. Just let me know if you can't make it to the event but want a copy of anything, - more material to come.
Oh, and my lovely friend Bathsheba and her sister Bella will have something to sell also. Max and Johnson will be there flogging some shiny wares no doubt, and as it's near my hometown, loadsa suckas I haven't seen for ages. Well, one at least ( hi Sarah). And the usual comix crowd no doubt. And the Pope.

I'm planning on setting up a group for comix enthusiasts in Eastbourne in order to prevent myself from going insane whilst living here. If you or anyone you know lives here or in surrounding seaside n' old lady towns let them know. We'll have a rolkciking time! p. I put up a poster in the local library. And there's this also

My genius 15 year old brother is making some songs to accompany my blackbird comic 'B-Bird'. They will be on a free CD to accompany the pube-lick-ation. He did all the fancy colour fadey stuff too. We might make a video too if we can be bothered. He's broken up from school, and I'm still unemployed. Winner!
In other news I am going to illustrate some stories by Ian Morgan, which will hopefully be ready and purchasable at the Tunbridge Wells thing-a-me-jig in a month's time. Sit tight suckaz!

Hello reader. I'm going to be taking part in this 'handmade' day in Tumbridge Wells real soon. As I've run out of 'Contagious' , plus I kind of saw that venture as a practice run anyway, I had better get really started on a mini comic. I have a lot of ideas, I've just been floundering. Uhh yeah, so cometh if you can I'll be on it for drawing days three and four of 'Day One' written by Clare 'Foh Sho' Lowe as soon as she types up the writing and sends it, with love, through the pornographic minefield that is cyberspace.

I unearthed a whole load of wank from my old room ( here is a small sample). I seem to have kept loads of old secondary school journals covered n embarrassing doodles comics and writing. I may resurrect an old character called 'Polly Wolly Doodle', possibly for my blackbird story that i've been mulling over. I am resisting putting it up as it is so excruciatingly adolescent. But ahwell, maybe I will anyway for a good larf. I'm now gonna go back to drowning in the mess that is my old room/ family dump.
I enjoyed a lot of this exhibition. I particularly liked seeing Ray Caesar's ( as featured here- 'Love Letters')computer generated (Maya) pictures. The skin upclose is lickable. I also liked a lot of the more traditional aesthetics of some of the more painterly pieces like Korin Faught's 'Bonnet', infused with contemporary pop culture. It broke up the obvious choices nicely methought. It's on till August in the museum up the top of Park Street.
