Louise Crosby (Seeing Comics) has been in touch with a great response to ‘The Gobstopper Machine’ – Ian’s story from AB Positive #1. The response is even produced in the folding format to match the zine! You can download the response by clicking here, and we’ve added it to the issue #1 archive page as well. Folding instructions are here. Thanks Lou!
Here’s Lou’s bio; check out her many excellent comics!
Louise Crosby is an illustrator and printmaker. She illustrates the poems of Clare Shaw (Bloodaxe) originally as etchings. After completing an MA in Digital Image and media at Bolton University she started to include the whole poem and text; hence an accidental start into comics. Since then the project has been called Seeing Poetry: Poetry in words and comics. A website will soon be found at www.seeingpoetry.co.uk and they also can be found at https://www.facebook.com/SeeingPoetry
They have recently been awards an Arts Council England grant and hope to find a publisher for a poetry comics book. She facilitates comics workshops specialising graphic memoir in illustrating existing literature and graphic memoir. She also draws other comics and cards as SeeingComics. Louise also runs the Laydez do Comics, Leeds www.laydeezdocomics.com
The next edition of Laydeez do Comics Leeds is coming up next Monday, the 19th of May, at Wharf Chambers from 1830-2130 (£1.50 entry) and features an amazing line up of guests in a Yorkshire showcase: Kate Ashwin (Widdershins), Darryl Cunningham (Supercrash: Ayn Rand and the New Right) and Jacky Fleming (Be A Bloody Train Driver). It would be worth a trip out to see any one of these guests, so all three on one night is a must! We’ll have a few remaining print copies of AB Positive #1 and #2 available on the night as well (but if you miss them you can always download them from this very website). See you there!
