I got my copy of Always Comix latest offering; The Evil Issue. "How does it smell?" I hear you ask... Well, this anthology smells fantastic, it smells like quality. And it is; beatiful three colour cover and interior printed in brown ink. I'm in it, and so are other people. Find out more, and submit something to the next issue here.
Hey, who's going to the london zine symposium? I'm gonna pop along, have a wander round.

So, I'm trying to improve my comic drawing. And I need to look at more comics for inspiration. Currently I know pretty little. I read mostly alternative North American stuff from Top Shelf, Fantagraphics and Drawn and Quarterly. In the past I've read some 60's and 70's comix; Crumb, Bode and Shelton, but that's about it.
French Comics (apart from Asterix and Tintin) I know nothing about. Same goes for Manga (I've got one of the Akira books, that's all)

Well my new brushes (Rosemary & Co) are lovely, but maybe a little too nice as I went completely overboard with the ink in this one.

So, I've got a couple of weeks off work so hopefully I'll be able to knock out a few strips in that time. Do you know of any anthologies that I could contribute to? I'd like to get my comics to a wider audience than my LJ friends and anthologies and zines seem the fun way forward.

So, here's my contribution to The Thing anthology in full. I didn't get a copy, it sold out before I got round to picking one up. The theme was Mars
I had a good time at The Thing, maybe I'll write this up later?
