Statement of Intent!

Pics from Redesfest Comics Drawing Workshop (& a farmer getting his face painted).

Having returned from a spontaneous holiday with Greek Laura; Vicky & her stinky VW campervan; 'The Captain' who sails tall ships out of St.Malo ( & who seems to base his life on the adventures of Corto Maltes, whose graphic adventures fill his bookshelves ); & ill Ian who collected a drillbit from Nuneaton,


> I will get a scanner sorted to copy some images in here - NO MORE UNACCOMPANIED TEXT!

> I will get NEWCASTLE ZINE REVIEW re-done/re-printed in time for distribution at Seripop!

> I will travel around the free bothies of Northumberland and write & sketch along the way, thus producing A ZINE ABOUT BOTHIES BEFORE AUGUST IS OUT! YEAH!

> I will root around my boxes of unfinished projects in order to get half-baked zine ideas printed IN THEIR HALF-BAKED STATE! Yeah, semi-cooked vegetables combine the vitaminous qualities of uncooked with the minimal mastication requirements of cooked, alright! Thus will appear, within the school holidays, several papery things such as FENHAM ZINE! INGATESTONIA! & EXAM ZINE 2!

> I will finally post off those zines & bundles & postcards I've got littering my house, finish those letters, visit those old friends, meet my new nephew, communicate with people, turn up to meetings, and start doodling something at least once a day! DOWN WITH FULL EMPLOYMENT, UP WITH HUMAN LIFE!

> I will produce a couple of page-or-2 strips for contribution to, for example, the 'This will explain everything' anthology. And draw a couple of things in readiness for Christmas presents.

> I'll go places, which I'll list once I've read Narc/The Crack/my diary, including doing some illustration workshop thing at REDESFEST, 1st August at Rochester on the road into Scotland, between Otterburn & Jedburgh. A kids' camp at Ruperts Wood, Building Festival at the Star & Shadow, hopefully do some Forest Education up at Harestanes over the border, local fetes, local gigs, pagan memories & veggie barbecues.

> I will also get my allotment in order, sleep well, eat healthily, wear scruffy clothes, get in a store of pritt-stick & drawing pens, tidy my room and do all those day-to-day things that don't seem to happen these days. I will also quit wasting money on bad planning & take-away sandwiches, & finally pay my rent.

All this I do declare, having woken up at 6pm in the evening in Newcastle, a magnificent city.
I Thankyou.

The Result:
