The Creature From The Funk Lagoon Rides Again

North Shields Soul Exchange! Details: https://en-gb.facebook.com/events/119565125226034/

Yup, it's true. The Creature From the Funk Lagoon rises from the watery depths bringing a discerning selection of funk, soul, rhythm & blues, ska, garage (plus probably jazz, northern soul, hip hop, rock, reggae, ah WHATEVER) to a new little early evening shindig for the discerning dancers of North Shields (and Newcastle of course) via the lovely surroundings of The Exchange bar - North Shields best kept secret cultural venue and bar. And it's free!

It's aiming for: laid-back good vibes with the possibility of some powerful funky moves getting busted if folks feel that way inclined.


Yes it's flipping political

...Everything's satirical. Well, Tales of Extraordinariness #6: Blah, Blah, Something, Democracy. is. A bit. Though it's mostly stupid.

It's a very small comic that features Intergalactic Megatyrant Zorxnax seeking your vote.

As usual, available from: probably me in person. Maybe Travelling Man? Though I said that the last couple of times and don't think I've actually given them any. Yet! Maybe I'll get sort it out now, who knows.


Paperjammening No.2

Yo! 'Small Press Day' has been invented, and loads of excellent events are occurring all over the place. I, along with a selection of tremendous small press comic artists will be at this thing...


Making 'Making' for Makers

The latest Paper Jam Comics Collective anthology, Making ...And That has been, er, made! It's being launched at the amazing Maker Faire!

Paper Jam had a table at the first Maker Faire in the UK (back in 2009) and we felt it was about time we represented once again at the low-tech end of the punky DIY creative spirit that Maker Faire (and PJCC) is all about.

The comic, then, is themed around making stuff and covers the making of a range of things from the international space station to D&D characters to jam - and, of course, comics.

I've done a couple of one-pagers for it, one about the amazingness of the humble paper clip and one about the interlinked nature of stuff in the modern world.

If you're around in Newcastle this weekend, you should definitely check out the Maker Faire, it's always full of astounding sights and a palpable passion for science and creativity, and even if all the soldering and coding seems too techy for you, hey, roll by the PJCC table and makes some comics, we'll even provide the pens and paper.
