(Prepare for a link-peppered post…) Hooray! New book coming from Blank Slate has just been announced…! You’ll be able to pick up at this November’s Thought Bubble festival in Leeds (check out this year’s logo by Becky Cloonan, isn’t it lovely? ^^)
The book itself follows the life of a woman from her birth in 1968, to 2011. Each year is drawn by a different artist. Each artist continues the story, as it unfolds Exquisite Corpse-style. So, the book is like a comics relay race! It’s headed up by Rob Davis and Woodrow Phoenix, and Kayla Marie Hillier.
All proceeds from the book are going to Shelter, and if the above isn’t enough to convince you this is something you oughtta make room for on your shelf, check out the full list of creators…
Rob Davis, Woodrow Phoenix, Ellen Lindner, Jamie Smart, Gary Northfield, Sarah McIntyre, Suzy Varty, Sean Longcroft, Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, Luke Pearson, Paul Harrison-Davies, Katie Green, Paul Peart-Smith, Glyn Dillon, Ian Culbard, John Allison, Philip Bond, Matt (D’Israeli) Brooker, Simone Lia, Daryl Cunningham, Jonathan Edwards, Ade Salmon, Kate Charlesworth, Warren Pleece, Kristyna Baczynski, James Harvey, Rian Hughes, Sean Phillips + Pete Doree, Kate Brown, Simon Gane, Oliver East, Adam Cadwell, Faz Choudhury, Jake, Jeremy Day, Dan McDaid, Roger Langridge, Will Morris, Dave Shelton, Carol Swain, Hunt Emerson, Duncan Fegredo, Philippa Rice, Garen Ewing, Tom Humberstone, Dan Berry, Kate Evans, Laura Howell, Andi Watson and Dave Taylor.
(That list is in the order in which the artists/writers appear in the book, by the way). Honestly, this was amazing to work on and I’m really happy to have been a part of it. It’s been utterly fascinating to watch the story unfold as each artist takes the baton!
Speaking of which, I gotta finish my roughs! Nearly done! \^o^/
