Quick update!

Hello! I’ve been bogged down a lot lately…! But quickly, here are two interviews. The first was for Thought Bubble Festival as their series of Minterviews… I’m so excited for Thought Bubble again! It was definitely one of the best shows I’ve ever been to! Click for the interview. The second was for Richard Reynolds of Fanboy Confidential, and was also really fun to answer. I like answering questions ;3; Click for this interview!

I am also excited to be a guest at this weekend’s KAPOW! Comic Festival in London. I’ll be attending on the Sunday, with the Independant Comics panel at 12.45 in Room A, and then signing straight afterwards in the same room, until 2.15. This is a great panel: we have Emma Vieceli, Becky Cloonan and the creators behind Bayou Arcana joining us! Following that, I’ll be at the SelfMadeHero table from 2.30. Hope to see some of you there!

So anyway… here’s four little sketches of characters from A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones (mostly based on the actors portraying them in the series) that I did in a cafe when I was going nuts waiting for a replacement monitor to show up. I’d Instagrammed them at the time, and now I can’t find the originals, so, the Instagrammed versions will have to do, haha.

Hopefully they’re easy enough to figure out who’s who, but just in case, from top right in clockwise motion: Ned Stark, Joffrey Baratheon Lannister Whatever, Jaime Lannister, Sansa Stark. After that I got bored and went home. I should do some more sometime, though, they’re quite fun to draw.

Other than THAT, I’m coming to the end of a series of ilustrations for a perfomance piece as part of the Cultural Olympiad. I hope to be able to share a bit more information on this very soon!

    I’m about halfway through the first book – saw the first two episodes and decided to read it first rather than watch the rest of the series, so far I prefer the book. I spotted Ned pretty easily there, thought the top-right might be either Jaime or Joffrey (the latter looks different in the book), didn’t spot the bottom two I’m afraid.

    • I JUST REMEMBERED can you send me your address?! I don’t know when we’ll meet up next and I want to give you your contrib copies of F+C!
      In terms of ASOIAF, I’m taking the possibly odd route of watching a series, and then reading the corresponding book, haha! I think the series stands out in places the book is weak, and vice versa. It’s been really interesting reading/watching them together.

        Sure I’ll email you.

        I was worried when I started with the GoT series that it would turn out like Rome, or Blood & Sand, which I just found unwatchably self-aware and attention-seeking with the amounts of OTT sex and violence – not that I have a problem with those things per se, but those shows were so just like ‘LOOK, THIS IS A GROWN-UP SHOW! SO MUCH SEX AND VIOLENCE! THIS MUST BE REALLY AUTHENTIC!’. GoT seemed to just about avoid that, I mean it’s still pretty in-your-face about it, but the stuff that’s there is at least there for some kind of reason. However, it is more explicit than the book (as far as I’ve read), so there is still an element of attention-grabbing I think. And unfortunately from what I’ve heard about the second season, it does start to slip further and further down that route of gratuity…

        Unfortunately I’ve encountered quite a huge spoiler about the first book/season as well, but at least it’s only about the first one…
