Immense gratitude to the team for choosing me, and congrats to my fellow patron Kate Charlesworth. I am really looking forward to representing.
The festival, which takes place in Kendal, has been super supportive of my comic project Clockwork Watch over the years.
Kate and I will join existing patrons, comic artist Charlie Adlard, incoming Comics Laureate Stephen L. Holland, comic artist Sean Phillips, cartoonist Zoom Rockman and comic writer and artist Bryan Talbot and comic writer Mary Talbot, the latter integral to the founding of the project back in 2013.
An absolute joy to have finished my first year of lecturing at the Royal College of Art. Huge gratitude to Eleanor Dare, and Neville Brody for giving me the opportunity to share my practice with the students, who allowed me to expand their understanding of storytelling.
From now till summer, I’ll be working on my writing chores, including the next immersive theatre piece from Clockwork Watch, which will debut at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal this October, where Corey Brotherson and I will be collaborating with Kendal College, and members of the public.
