Hi People- After much waiting i can finally announce my big news. I’ve signed a deal withRandom House’s Square Peg for an advance to publish my first graphic novel: ‘The House That Groaned’. Here’s a sneak peak of the art style above (i know…little eyes- gasp!)
The story is about bodies and the spaces they inhabit. It’s set in a converted Victorian building with six, one-bedroom apartments inhabited by six, lonely individuals. Each has their own story and their own relationship with their bodies; from the Retoucher who can’t touch, to the Grandmother who literally blends into the background.
I’ve really enjoyed thinking up these weird and wonderful characters and playing with their backstories. It’ll be finished May 2011 but check here for further info, teasers and updates. Thanks so much to my brilliant agent Tracy Bohan and to Rose Davidson for having faith in my weird little book.
Here’s a cheesy photo of me signing my book deal (i know. not cool…but i was excited!). Right…back to work. Hope you’re all well!
