Here is a sneak preview of a project I am working on with award winning writer Anita MacCallum – a graphic novel for adults based on one of her mesmerising short stories.
Hooray! Here is my contribution to ‘Draw the Line’- description of the project below is taken from their website https://drawthelinecomics.com/
When the political climate starts to go against your own beliefs, it’s very easy to start feeling small and powerless.
This website brings together more than 100 comic artists, each illustrating actions that anyone can take, if they want to make a difference.
Some of them are actions you can take right now. Many of them can be done on the cheap, or for no money at all. Some are suitable for kids. They all have something in common: they are non-partisan steps that any citizen can take when they don’t like the way that politics are going.
It has taken me a while to post about it, but here it is! I loved working on this comic project – here it is described in an interview with ‘The Misfits’ on the website http://punksinthecommunity.co.uk
‘Our latest project funded by the Arts Council is making a comic about staying up late. We have worked with two artists Anita MacCallum and Jenny Drew and designed a twisted cinderella story about the challenges of living an independent life it’s called ‘Rhythm of the Night’. The story aims to encourage conversation about how people with learning difficulties and their support can come up with creative solutions to staying up late.’
