You may have noticed the lack of posts both this week and last. Given current busy-ness (and breaks – a couple of days off is reasons on for today’s lack protest, so perhaps we should call this a post on the necessity of time off! ^_~ ), I’m going to re-label this a not-quite-weekly series for now. Keep checking back, I’ll try and still keep it fairly regular, and hopefully we can kick back into full gear in the new year!
Hello! Apologies for the lack of FF this week. I’m currently off at Thought Bubble. (Hurrah!) ((Table 133/4 in New Dock Hall, if you’re there!))
For now, I thought I’d mention, as November winds down, that I’m participating in Gallery of Mo again this year, where you can get a dashing moustachioed portrait by me for a donation to men’s health for Movember!
For those who will be in Leeds this weekend, here’s where you can find me! I’m sharing tables 133 and 134 in New Dock Hall with the wonderful Zarina Liew and Van Nim!
What I’ll have with me: First and foremost, Atomic Sheep! I’ll have copies for sale at a convention special price, and will sketch inside for you, so you should definitely come and pick up a copy! ^_~ I’ll also have the last handful of copies of Now and Then with me…I’m not sure I’ll be reprinting these in the near future, so if you’d like to snag a copy of this beauty, now’s the time! I’ll also have From, minicomic Candy Bag, and limited numbers of fine art prints, including this one.
Sketches? Yes! I’ll be offering quick A5 sketches - just £5 for a general topic (eg), £10 for portraits! If you’d like something more involved though, stop by and ask…I may very well be able to fit it in!
See you there!
Today I’ve just been tidying up my template collaboration agreement to send over to someone, and though others might find it useful, so today will be a document post.
This is for cases where work is not being commissioned – rather I’m developing a creator-owned project with a colleague. Even when working with friends, it’s a) just good practice to always have an agreement, and b) discussing it makes sure you’re both on the same page about what the project is, what you’ll be doing with it, and various ‘what-if’s, right off the bat.

My document pasted in after the cut. Please feel free to add anything that’s missing in the comments, so we can all pool our resources!
Hi all! Today’s a bit of a quicky post, as I’m only just starting to shake off this flu (let’s hope that’s my quota for the season O.o).
What I did manage to get done in my flu-ridden haze was set up a new blog for a personal side project – a series of magical girls illustrations – which you can find here!
Forgive me, freelance pals! I look like this today.
The ability to delay work a bit if you’re unwell, or things come up, is one of the great blessings of freelance work. But of course, that shifted work always has to go somewhere else in the schedule (something it can sometimes be hard to get others to understand, with your ‘flexible schedule’ – but that’s a post in itself!). So lots of catchup for me next week ^_~
Sadly ran out of time for anything new, but here’s a halloween illo from the archives!
Sorry for the lack of a Freelance Friday post today – I am down at MCM London Comic Con for the weekend! If you’re there, come say hi (or better still, buy things from me! ^_~ ) at table CL1 in Comic Village! For those not at MCM, I’ll also be at Comica Comiket the weekend after, and at Thought Bubble a few weeks after that.
See you next week!
Quick post to mention that Atomic Sheep is now available on Comixology for just $4.99!
If you’d like to pick it up, buying it from here means a cut goes to fantastic comics retailer/supported Page 45, at no cost to you! Yay!
Updates to the Atomic Sheep site coming soon!
Happy Friday! After a couple of weeks of practical posts, we’re back to something a little more article-y, though as with the last couple, this one is courtesy of things I’m thinking about this week.
I’ve started my research and planning to apply for a grant for a project, after lots of back-and-forth dithering over which avenue would best be tried first. And of course, who knows if I’ll get it. So I thought I’d write a post today about weighing the opportunities and risks of the things we apply for.
