' I had to take him to that ghetto university'

S'up. I haven't posted on here for a looooonnng time. Sorry loves. Um, I've been a little distracted....

I have also been to NYC which was dope- there was a hurricane when I was there! Bit of a non-happening it was tho. Picked up some rad small press and indie stuff whilst there such as'Gutter'( now discontinued)'Crickets' by S. Harkham ( I think); 'Captcha 2' which had great low fi drawings (www.funkyjewels.com);'My Best Pet/Feeble-Minded Funnies' a raw double sided book and some nice soft porn comics like 'Tecopa Jane' -mollykeilly.com.

Will be in this publication come Halloween http://www.nyxnoctournal.com/home.htm; will also probably be blogging for http://www.laydeezdocomics.com/ one week this month will letcha know when. Am starting volunteering for a charity and will be running my own art workshops for kids soon if i can find my bloody CRB. Got plugged by Josie Long on Twitter too XD

I'm trying to get back into painting, feels like a weak muscle Also working on a 'Polly' book. Polly is a character I invented in secondary school. Lucky Polly gets to go to art school in this. Nnnyays.Done the odd other strips as well but they haven't been developed and given out for public consumption. I had bets on to do stuff.

So I'll put up some art soon, I don't have a lot of it here right now. Meanwhile here are some works in process- Frankenstein's monster dress up dolls of Nicki Minaj and Rihanna.

A Room of One's Own- Virginia Woolf

'...to sacrifice a hair of the head of your vision, a shade of its colour, in deference to some Headmaster with a silver pot in his hand or to some professor with a measuring rod up his sleeve, is the most abject treachery, and the sacrifice of wealth and chastity which used to be said of the greatest human disasters, a mere flea bite by comparison.'

'And again I am reminded by dipping into newspapers and novels and biographies that when a woman speaks to women she should have something very unpleasant up her sleeve. Women are hard on women. Women dislike women. Women- but are you not sick to death of the word? I can assure you that I am. Let us agree, then, that a paper read by a woman to women should end with something particularly disagreeable. But how does it go? What can I think of? The truth is, I often like women. I like their unconventiality. I like their completeness. I like their anonymity. I like- I must not run on this way....Let me then adopt a sterner tone'

http://theriandos.blogspot.com/ Oh yeah and youse should come to this if you're in Brizzle, it's at the 8 Week Gallery in Stokes Croft and features new work each day by the lovely Riando sisters and co.

Maybe if we both lived in a different world
(womanizer, womanizer, womanizer, womanizer)
It would be all good,
And maybe I could be your girl
But I can't, 'cause we don't,
Me n Friando, totally profesh.

Oh God, If I don't take myself seriously, who will...? Hahaha.

'Don't use your brain when your body makes the splash'

What's up bitches? Ahem...

I'm working on a 2 page spread for XEROGRAFIX II, a screenprinted arts newspaper made by Vicky Samuel ( I was in issue one with my Jay Z strip that I've used in a few things ( unprolific? Moi...?). The theme of this issue is the UK, so my comic is based on the controversial official investigation into Bloody Sunday which was released last year after a 10 year investigation http://www.bloody-sunday-inquiry.org/following the initial Widgery 'whitewash'. The incident which took place in 1972 began with a civil rights protest in Londonderry ( 'Derry' to nationalists) which ended in riots and then disaster and the loss of 13 civilian lives ( and one death after the shooting, possibly as a result of injuries received on the day) as a result of army fire.

I thought this would be an appropriate topic following the recent protests in London. I didn't actually attending the protest recently, but was working on Oxford Street at the time. Just a reminder that it's all fun and games till someone gets hurt. Also, as I'm a bit of a plastic paddy,- my parents are from Nor'n Ireland but I was raised in England, this topic is pretty important to me.

Completing the pictures is a bit of a bitch due to detail, having finally condensed the events of the day got THAT to sort out. But ahhhhweeelll only like, 12 frames to go...

Yeah I reckon I'll be going the old London Zine Symposium next weekend also http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=103361703075789 should be a larf and that. Hey isn't it sunny(?) I told my housemate I'd help with his animation http://homepage.ntlworld.com/mikesenior/tomsenior/index.swf, need to get on it. Seriously, don't know how he has the patience to do that all day. I'm learning photoshop off Cliff my other housemate as well. I realise I should know how to use it after a whole load of art education but I always got other people to do it for me hahaha...ha. Anyway I'll give him props coz I know he'd like that. Check out the beyonce remix on his site in particular http://www.myspace.com/recsundme http://cliffordsage.co.uk/ there ya go.

xoxoxo fuck you

'I got love from London to Leeds'- Kano

Hello hello,

So I went to Leeds yesterday ( 5 in the morn) for the 2nd Leeds Alternative Comics Fair organised by Gareth Brookes http://www.appallingnonsense.co.uk/ and Steve Tillotson ( http://www.banalpig.com/blog/). I didn't get a new comic printed in time for various reasons, so I just had a poor old 'contagious 1 and 2' , photocopied at Rymans, who didn't go down very well at all! I'm pretty new to this game and I felt quite shy around the shinier publications and drank my pints too quickly as a result and did a hard sell- har. Then I zoned out a bit...

Hope I wasn't TOOO whiney, I didn't even look around properly, felt a bit like a fish out of water. BUT I did meet some awesome people- check out these http://www.reetcomic.co.uk/- awesome illustrations http://magicbeanscomics.blogspot.com/ - haha, 'Space Dracula' http://www.jackfallows.com/( haven't read this yet, nice man) and others who i don't have web addresses for. Everybody was SO NICE :) and I got some helpful tips. Got to keep on keeping on yo. Got some nooo idearss.

Anyway, it was a reet good event so thanks to Gareth and Steve and sorry for being odd.

a milli a milli a mi- a milli a milli a mi-

http://www.alternativepress.org.uk/events.html me and Clare Lowe ( get lowe, get lowe get lowe get lowe get lowe get lowe TO THE WINDOW!) are going to London Alternative Press Fair in May. NNnnyaaaayyys! Also, it' s Leeds fair for me next weekend eep! Um, I'm working on something. Trust and believe. I nearly wrote 'Trust and Bellend'. It's a siiggggnnnnn!

1. Don't draw famous people unless you're really really good at drawing.
2. Have an exciting life so you can draw inspiration from it. This is unlikely to happen.
3. Don't do autobiographical comics as they are mostly shit.
4. Don't be a girl.
5. Don't be a young girl.
6.Don't talk about how hard it is being a girl if you must insist on being a girl. Or else use it as a novelty.
7. Don't be from the UK. Be from 'the states' or Canada.
8. Don't admit that you dislike superhero comics.
9. Don't tell your job you can't come in extra as you're busy 'working on your self published comics'.
10. Don't bother.

This is what I look like of late in case you care. I'll stop now...

Mad props to Roisin. My family are my biggest fans, and also the only people who are getting free art from now on you bloody vultures. Too much Dre...

Back when Cube - was rollin wit Lorenzo in a Benzo I was bangin wit a gang of instrumentals

fuck you i'm making stuff! I just don't want to put it up yet coz i don't know whether it's balls or not and I don't want to keep filling this thing with videos off youtube. And mindless drivel. Just typing absolute balls. Ballbags and such. Cumstains. Anyway, I'm going to new york for about a week in august(!!) so i want to have a full decent comic by then to toss around. Meanwhile may not have stuff on here for a while before until i've produced enough wheat not chaff. At the moment it's mainly about my dreams and about black people and stuff. Maybe I'll do an exhibition and do the odd fair or stall to flog some stuff with my new found retail skills. Oh, and I got a 'passable' review from Paper Tiger for my eyeball contribution. Cheers. lolz. I went to the Brit Art Now exhibition at Saatchi and they had a comic strip in the exhibit, but apparently it was working in the school of 'Bourriaud’s Relational Aesthetics'. Go figure. Too stupid for artschool.
