The lovely Bill and Chris of Graphic Weiners interviewed me the night before I headed off to Ukraine to talk all things Stan and Nan. Give it a listen to hear my mumbled answers !
I will be presenting work created here in Ukraine in my Muzychi studio on the 25th September. Details below:
I’m now in Muzychi! – a village just outside of Kiev. I’m here for one month staying with the artist Alevtina Kakhidze. Ale and her husband Vova are lovely and welcoming people. They cooked me dinner in their garden last night where I discovered Mustard leaves – oh my goodness, if you haven’t tasted them, I recommend you hunt them down.. so delicious… My hosts have three dogs – Penelop who is a beautiful friendly playful soul, Deer who is quite poorly at the moment and enjoys chocolate, and Bukowski, whose name does him justice – he’s a little on the more aggressive side.
You can now follow me on instagram to see lots of photos! I’m crayonlegs of course, so look me up. More soon.
Oh and one last thing – I am going to this tomorrow.. If you didn’t know already, I really like dogs… Which is probably a good thing as they are everywhere in Muzychi!
So it’s been a little while since I last posted… I have been taking a much needed two week break in Croatia, but back on home turf and art-wise, lots has been happening, some of which I can disclose now! I am illustrating a new book from the marvellous Joanna Grochowicz who has written a smashing account of Robert Scott’s tragic journey to the south pole entitled ‘Into The White’ for older children with Allen and Unwin. I have also been selected as one of six UK based artists to spend one month in the Ukraine as an artist in residence. I will be in residence at the artist Alevtina Kakhidze studio in the village of Muzychi for the whole of September – very exciting indeed. Expect plenty of posts from me! And more exciting news as and when I can reveal!
In the meantime – here’s a little drawing from my sketchbook. Dubrovnik Airport from above:
It was also comic of the week over at Broken Frontier. They said some lovely things including:
“[Stan and Nan is] a beautifully thoughtful piece of storytelling brought to life with a distinctive visual honesty, this is a fine addition to the Cape comics library and one that marks the emergence of a most promising new voice to watch out for on the UK scene.”
