Next Saturday I’ll be at the Thought Bubble comic festival in Leeds, a great event with a nice mix of mainstream and small press comics. Just the right size to be fun and sociable (and profitable) – I’m really looking forward to it.
As part of the build-up I’ll be posting about a few projects where my comics are appearing, but first I’m turning the focus towards my table-buddy for the day at Leeds: Ellen Lindner.
Ever since I first met Ellen, I’ve been fascinated by her comics work with its variety, dynamism and strength of purpose and so it was a great pleasure to spend some time interviewing her in order to learn more. The resulting discussion was particularly interesting because although I think of Ellen as a friend, I discovered that a lot of assumptions I’d made about her and her work were incorrect. It just shows you should never assume anything, even about those you think you know well.
Make yourself a cup of tea, sit back and read the interview.
