I drew a comic about getting married to the sea.
I was asked by Jessica Lopez to take part in the writers/illustrators blog tour! Each person answers four questions about their current projects and their process, then passes the baton to another couple of artists/writers.
I asked Amber Hsu and Dan Berry to go next… look out for their posts next week! :o)

Advice to the mid-career cartoonist who has failed to build an audience
I’ve been publishing comics for coming on twenty years now. It’s hard to pinpoint a start-date, as like many cartoonists I’ve just been drawing my whole life, but sometime around ‘95 would be when I began putting out ‘zines…
I recently spent a week in Cornwall and tried to do a sketch every day. I managed to only miss one!
I love the little fishing harbour where I stayed – watching the fishing boats and walking along the coast. The water there is unbelievably green. I love the unusual plant-life that you see in Cornwall, for me it’s the part of the UK that feels most like a different country! There’s an album of my Cornwall photos here.

'Hilda's world is one of wonder and magic and yet so very recognisably childlike, as she approaches things good, bad and strange openly, with curiosity, and without filters and umbrage. After having moved to the city in Hilda and the Bird Parade, Hilda is now a little more settled, but suffering somewhat from cooped-in syndrome- roaming around in the city isn't the same as roaming around in the country, so Hilda's mum decides enrolling in the Sparrow Scouts would be a good idea: Hilda gets to camp outdoors instead of in her bedroom, explore and wander to her heart's content, and perhaps even make some new friends. But camping in the great outdoors can't happen straightaway, with skills to be acquired and knowledge imparted, so we get a gorgeous, very funny, double-age spread montage sequence, as Hilda works her way through the 6 weeks of map-reading, (melodramatic) first aid, tent-pitching, knot-tying, and more. Pearson divides each page into 3 sections, ticking a week off each time, with all Hilda's varying efforts ending in mishap or comedy of some kind; it's the epitome of delightful.'
