"...simple stuff."

Greetings.
I'm glad people have been diggin' the TINNITUS...if you haven't picked one up already, follow the little link to the right...or get yourself to one of the fine establishments listed a coupla posts ago.

I've been working away on the first issue proper for the past week or two...all I can say is...be patient...hopefully it'll come good and you'll see it as some sort of reward....

Speaking of patience...my original plan was to release or 'upload' ISSUE-0 on here when ISSUE-1 is born into the real world of physical things...so that any of you that haven't had a copy can see inside it...but that may happen sooner...

I'll also be posting some snippet preview stuff on here as I'm working on ISSUE-1 too...

For now though...here's a sketchbook entry drawn last night while waiting for something to happen...no scan, just a photo...PEACE

"...Feed your head..."

UberCRAFTzine SUGAR PAPER are putting together issue number SIX of '20 things to make & do' as we 'speak'...and they kindly asked your mumble narrator to illustrate the cover...big shoes to fill considering superdoodler BUNNY BISSOUX did a helluva job of number 5...

Now, seeing as quilting is a thing to make and do in the zine, I decided on a quilted (front & back) cover...and in amongst the obviously crafty paraphernelia featured on the panels, you may also viddy a few subtle references to the roaring Jefferson Airplane...(Grace Slick...sigh...swoon...)


SUGAR PAPER no.6 '20 things to make & do' is being launched this Sunday (14th Nov.) at 'We Can Quilt It'...which is taking place at Fuel in Manchester...here for details!

...anyway, here tis...click to enlarge!

"...Scratching peace symbols in your mind..."

It seems like forever ago when I drew this, but it's finally out there in the ether...DEATH FROM ABOVE...go buy...

Thanks to Nick at Death and Mr Allen for letting me do my thang...



...right, I need to get back to drawing naked acid damaged hippy chicks...eat 'shrooms not animals...P-E-A-C-E.
