Don’t Get Lost: a 24 Hour Comic (2010)

My third tenty-four hour comic. This comic deals with themes of sexual abuse and may contain triggers that could be upsetting. I am extremely grateful to Catalyst Arts and the Belfast 24hour cartoonists for providing a safe and nurturing space to explore this dark matter and see it through to daylight.

Absence (2010) 


Before Stephen Downey gave his magic touch to it, Absence was a 24 hour comic drawn by myself in black and white at A5. The web and photocopied version attracted about 500 readers. The extra pages discuss the liberation in identifying mental neurosis, and the health concerns in making 24 hour comics.
