Pretty excited when I first went for my interview at Foyles to discover Parallel Lives Anthology in the ‘zine rack of their Comics & Graphic Novel department. So excited, in fact, that I took a picture with my terrible phone camera.

About a year later, me in a not-much-better photo, surprised to the point of gopher-ishness to spot it in the Fruitmarket Gallery bookshop, Edinburgh. So excite.

: Submissions for Autumn 2013 →

whatsthetimemrswoolf:

Hello hello Woolves!

It’s that time again! We’re now collecting submissions for the Autumn issue of What’s the Time, Mrs Woolf.

There’s no official theme, but if you’d like a starting point we have some that might help. As we’re now into the two darker seasons, it’s…

SEND US YOUR ‘ZINE THINGS! Drawings, writings, articles, comics, photo essays, poetry, book/film/music reviews, how-to DIY/craft/upcycling tutorials/recipes…Optional seasonal theme if you feel moved to create something autumnal or halloween-related*. If you’re a female creative with something you’d like to see in print that can fit onto a5 page/s (B&W), send it to whatsthetimemrswoolf@gmail.com by this Friday (20th September)!

Cover submissions also welcome - art for a front and back cover in a5, or landscape a4 to wrap around both.

*Feminism, women’s issues and/or a female point of view are our permanent themes! :) This can be as simple as being a female creative; responding to the world from a female perspective; or as specific as debating Lady Gaga’s mildly threatening brand of sexiness (Postmodern referencing of the monstrous feminine or meaningless gesture of contrived eccentricity manufactured from the bowels of the pop machine?) Our starting point for the What’s The Time Mrs. Woolf? ‘zine was to make a sort of un-women’s rag :)

Oh, and we have a fairy problem page! Your problems answered. By fairies. Send us your problems!

MK Gallery – MK Calling Artist Workshop: Jade Sarson →

teahermitcomics:

For those of you in the Milton Keynes area, I’m running a workshop from 6.30-8pm tomorrow (Wednesday) evening on Lettering and Typography. The workshop covers uses of lettering in the world at large as well as specifically in comics, and how to create and use both typefaces and handwritten lettering in your work.

If you think you’d be interested in that sort of thing, pop along to the MK Gallery at 6.30pm tomorrow! It’ll be fun, I promise ;) See you there~!

Milton Keynesians and Milton Keynes visitors! Jade Sarson is streets ahead of anyone for this sort of thing (Lettering, typography — panelling, too, although that’s another workshop right there)….Don’t miss this if you’re interested in creating comics and graphic design in general! Pretty sure all skill levels welcome too :)

Any suggestions/advice?

Does anybody use their android phone for word processing? Not note-taking, like writing/editing/saving documents? (I have Google Drive but last time I tried to do some writing on the train I lost my progress due to poor internet connectivity ‘there was a problem saving’.) Is this the case for all writing apps? Are there any that store changes on the phone instead of online, or would this take up all my phone memory?

Hello hello, Woolves! I’m pleased to report we did a very brisk trade at London MCM Expo, and we’ve funded some future tables! We also sold out of the Spring 2013 issue, so we’ll be doing a second print run.

It’s also time for submissions for the Summer 2013 issue!…

fullofluff asked: Absolutely love your stuff! Just wondering how you get into all these magazines and shows?


Answer:

Hi dude! I like your drawings too :) Ok, err mostly by teaming up with some friends who like to make stuff too, e.g. the ‘zine called What’s The Time Mrs. Woolf is literally something a friend of mine runs up on a photocopier. Another friend co-ordinates the Inspired Comics Collective Anthologies, although she pays to have them printed through a printing service. Both friends I met in my illustration class at uni. GEEKED magazine was put together with a little crowd funding by some girls at the bookshop where I work - and the GEEKED exhibition followed the recent debut issue of the magazine simply because Foyles bookshop has a gallery and are very supportive of their employees, most of whom are writers, creatives, students or academics. Both publications are open to submissions, there should be links to their pages on my blog :) The Londonprintstudio Comics Collective was an internship I took part in, resulting in a printed anthology and exhibition which we mostly put together ourselves, it was funded by charity because we were teaching local youths about drawing comics and exhibiting their work, too. None of these were paid, I graduated in 2011 but until I can develop the discipline of a professional I’m still an amateur taking it one bite at a time! A handful of my classmates were at a professional level by the time they graduated, but everybody has their own pace. I’ve still got lots to learn! :) If you’re a student at the moment you will probably be making friendships/connections as you go along that will lead to print and exhibitions, even if they’re DIY affairs you knock up for yourselves. Small press fairs (see: comic conventions, which are getting more arty and illustration-y all the time, if you visit the right ones), are a good place to meet like minds with ‘zines and anthologies they want contributors for, too! Ok these are my experiences, I hope that was all not totally obvious knowledge that you knew already?
