  1. Hi Cathy
    Belated (very!) congratulations on your publishing success. You may remember we were at Therfield Comp at the same time - Alison Burt (now Smith). Elizabeth McDonough (now Doak) told me you were published and then I came across your blog via a SCBWI member who had linked you from theirs. I'm an aspiring author - having done an MA in Writing for Children at the Uni of WInchester I'm currently finalising my second, middle grade historical novel in the hope of landing an agent....
    Good luck with your future ventures - your books look great!

    :)

  2. Hi Alison,
    Wow! Wonderful to hear from you. Do you ever go to SCBWI events? We must meet up and talk books. Are you on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram? It would be lovely to keep in touch.
    Best regards,
    Cathy

Laydeez Day

This weekend I'm heading up to London for the Laydeez Do Comics Award event. I'm really excited that 'Who Killed Jo-jo?', my first long-form comic, is on the shortlist. I'm awfully chuffed to have been selected alongside such talented artists and it feels like an enormous stamp of approval for my 30-year plan to become a bona fide graphic novelist! Better late then never, eh?

If you are anywhere near London, do come over to the Free Word Centre tomorrow (24th March) where you will be able to read ALL the submitted comics as zines, and meet loads of amazing comics creators, male and female! It's free but you need to book.

Rubber Stamping

We were only 4, because of the snow, but Saturday's rubber stamping workshop was a huge success. I invited friends to be my guinea pigs so I could test timings and smooth out technical details. The results were great.
Peter made his own logo stamps and printed them on a book bag, while Lisa and Dorothy created wonderful designs which we printed on kraft paper greetings cards.

I'll be running the smoothed-out version of the same workshop during Surrey Artist's Open Studios in June, so check back here for details in a month or two. More workshops are planned for the summer, too, including Cyanotype Printing on Fabric and Making Your Own Folding Hardcover Sketchbook.
Thank you Lisa Boyce for the photographs.
