Earlier this year I was spending way too much time listening to true crime podcasts, so much so that I ended up making a short story about a vigilante podcaster, working from a garden shed – Hoping to put this out in a new collection of short stories next year.   best served cold p1best served cold p2best serve cold p3best served cold p4 updated

[Edit: I originally published this post on my site earlier this year, however since then I submitted it to the Observer / Cape / Comica Graphic short story prize 2015 and was stunned, (the happy kind), to have been shortlisted this year. The exhibition, which is being held at Orbital Comics is on until Sunday 1st November, details and pics here]

If you want to see other comics online, (including the winner and runner up) links to all of these can be found on Myfanwy Tristram’s website):  http://myfanwytristram.com/tag/comic-strips

Anyway, here is the background to the story that I originally posted:

Back in August I moved from Cornwall to (greater) London, which, after being secluded in a comfortable bubble for 3 years, was mildly terrifying. What made this more gut wrenching was the continued media coverage of the London housing crisis, most notably, the notorious king’s cross flat, which became symbolic of the wider issue of lack of affordable London housing.

So while I nervously contemplated the limited property options that would await me in the city, I began wondering what the future would hold, and how far people may go to get a foothold in the rental / buyers market.

The result was i drew a comic several months after, playing on the idea of how far this trend could lead:

(I must note that during this time I also had my belongings in storage, which may have also formed a seed of an idea)

The weekend of 12-13th September, Peter Morey and I attended the Spectrumm festival at Merton Abbey Mills.

We spent the two days gathering stories from people about the local area, and drew them up in to a large-scale drawing collaborative mural (pictured above). As well as this, we also captured elements of the event, We also displayed the stories people gave us, which looked like this:

We got a wonderful range of responses, from the History of Merton Abbey Mills to small personal stories about people’s experience.

I’ve included some of the small moments we captured below:

I was invited to contribute an piece for Cultshare’s event ‘Song’s for lovers and the broken hearted’, which exhibited works from 14 illustrators. The brief was to choose a lyric from either a love or broken hearted song and produced a 12″ x 12″ illustration. The works were exhibited in Beerwolf books for valentine’s day, and are now moving to Howl in Penryn.

I chose to illustrate Leonards Cohen’s ‘So Long, Marianne’:

This if the first year I both read the book for the folio competition, made illustrations and entered the actual competition – what a shockeer!

This year, as some of you may know already, is the Folio Collection of Ghost stories.
