Sugar Forest Fire – free comic!

I honestly don’t know if I’ve mentioned it, but I have a book coming out soon. It’s big — 250 pages long before covers and interior stuff, and it’s called Found Forest Floor. It’s drawn by me, it’s written by Erik Blagsvedt and published by Abstract Editions. It’ll be out in a couple of months, I think.

From those 250 pages, I took 16 and made a little sampler called ‘Found Forest’ to sell at Winchester School of Art’s Small Press event. (You can buy a copy of it HERE and I’ll customise the cover for you, too). And over the past month or so I’ve been working over those pages with white and blank ink and unipins — I’ve been doing it in small chunks, in between other things, because my real-life work has been crazy over the past few weeks.

It’s acted both as an act of catharsis, getting stress out of my body and onto the page, and also as a continuation of the ‘Found Forest Floor’ process. I’ll be carrying a copy of this new comic around and re-working it so I’ll have a new version in a couple of months, too.

Oh, it’s called ‘Sugar Forest Fire’. You can download it here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4SfW4B59VgnTUwwUzNNNkRqQms/view
