My word its been a long time since i put anything new on here.

So to rectify that heres something new. Its pretty much my definitive website. I’ve been wondering for ages in what context to present my work. Since i do lots of different things and they have different identities (he he i said tities) i couldnt decide wether i should have different sites for poetry and for art and for books but in the end i had the opportunity to create a proper website thet has pictures and links and rss feeds (as soon i work out what they are and how to use them) and everything. So i put it all on the one site. Its not finished yet and is still pretty basic but eventually will ahve as many bells and whistles (as well as usefull stuff…and things).

Its called things and stuff and you can find it here

Please go and have a look and tell me what you think.

New Etsy store!

Posted in Uncategorized on November 6, 2009 by killerhippy

Ok so i know what your thinkin’. If only there was a place where I could go and purchase items of poetry filled drawing-tastic loveliness on such subjects as ice cream induced evil, sweetie fueled feline zombie action and metallic cake making? Well fear not loyal subjects there is an answer and you’ve got first dibs, you lucky people.

My new Etsy store is now live, you can buy all 5 comics aa well as greetings cards and coming soon, art prints and t-shirts.

Its well wicked! You knows it.

its time to get serious.

Posted in Uncategorized on October 21, 2009 by killerhippy

ok as you can probably tell from my blog history ive been a bit of a lazy bar steward since i started this in July. The time for dilly dallying is over. Its time to get serious so here goes.

Ive been playing open mic nights fairly regularly for about a year now as well as helping to run a one off spoken word night at the Griffin back in July (for the Alternative Press Fair).

Im usually to be found reading or comparing at ‘Y tuesday’ which is a lovely little poetry night in Clerkenwell see here

http://www.myspace.com/ytuesday

I’ve wrirtten a poem for Richard Tyrone Jones ‘Utter’ prime numbers night which is at the Whitechapel Gallery on Thursday 22nd although i wont be there to read it meself (im going up north to see me mum for her birthday, aww!)

http://bit.ly/utterprimes

On the comic front Ive just put the finishing touches to my latest book entitled ‘Hobo vs Wino part II’. Thats right there is a part one and is available (along with other stuff) from me at a comic and/or zine fair near you soon. Alternatively you can buy direct from me once ive got me paypal account sorted oot.

Watch this space for news on that.

Speaking of comics fairs, I have a stall at the comica comikett at the ICA, London on Sunday 8th November. see here for more

It’d be dead good to see ya.

Also my stuff will be on sale at the next ‘are you zine friendly?’ event on the 12th of November at the Foundry, London. Details here

Now for some pictures of my covers, just to give you a taste of the sort of stuff i do.

cover

The subject of my first book. Evil Steev is a) French b) evil and c) addicted to ice cream. Poor luv!

pcover

Poopahsoo! was book number two! that even rhymes dont it? Once she was a queen, now she’s just pissed off and full of telekinetic powers!

cover

My third book was all about these two jokers! Angie San is a scientist and Meekay Robotto is her faithful robot servant. Did i say say faithful servant? I probably meant slightly useless but adorable creation didnt I? Yep I did mean that.

cover

My fourth book entitled ‘Hobo vs Wino’. They weren’t always so scummy, it all gone wrong for them but don’t worry they’ve got a plan.

cover a4

the aforementioned book number 5.

Hope that was informative.

till next time peeps

gigedy gigedy (reprise)

Posted in Uncategorized on June 17, 2009 by killerhippy

Ok so i played the  ajar mike last tuesday and it went really well even though there was a tube strike and only two of the four contestants tuned up, and i didnt win!

I dont mind really, I had a great time and Anna Mae Selby (who won) was a worthy adversary.  

Got some good feed back and listened to some wicked poetry. 

id recommend these guys

Mike Freedman. Dirty, filthy and definitely tongue in cheek (i hope)

Alan Wolfson. Funny, rhymy and a very clever.

Niall Spooner-Harvey. An excellent performer and a sweet and lovely man. 

as for gigs and stuff im performing at the Tuesday Poetry Club @ the three kings pub on the 7th July see here for details

http://www.myspace.com/ytuesday

and at Poetry at the Park in Hyde park on the 26th of July. 

more details to come im sure.
