Giant Days is done for now! Thanks for all the kind emails and comments about it. I really enjoyed this run and was in two minds about whether to extend it for a further month or so. If you missed the end or want to read the story again, the Giant Days site is here.
I’ll be exhibiting at ELCAF 2013 in Bethnal Green, London, on June 22nd. Many of my favourite artists will be there too, and I’ll have hardcover Bad Machinery collections (on sale for the first time in the UK.) All being well, I’ll be debuting the Giant Days 2 book, along with other books, prints, tea towels, and hot sketches for CA$H.

I was playing around in Illustrator and came up with two new drawings that I really liked - Sloth and Duck! Two pretty good beasts, right? So I’ve added them to my store in a variety of sizes, from budget priced to super luxury. Check them out!
I should also add that there are just five copies of the original Giant Days comic left. Completists - last call.
I’ve had a number of messages from people struggling to get the Bad Machinery book outside the USA, particularly in the UK and Australia. Here’s what to do:
1. If you have a local comic shop, they can order it for you if it’s not in stock. Just ask! It’s in the system.
If you want a personalised book, I will be selling adhesive personalised bookplates from the beginning of May.
Two things I particularly enjoy are new music, and common sense. And my favourite two podcasts deal with these two areas with aplomb.
Jon Hillcock’s “All Back No Front” is an hour-plus weekly round up of records you almost certainly won’t have heard, and a constant source of things to buy. As I get older, I’m further and further away from the feelings, enthusiasm, and abundance of time that fuelled my early discoveries, but Jon’s podcast always has something new to get excited about. Like the old John Peel shows, there’s usually some earache somewhere in the mix, but it’s good medicine and worth taking.
I’m ten years out of the corporate workplace next year, and whenever I’m exposed what goes on within, a cold chill grips my heart. Lucy Kellaway’s dry, funny columns in the FT beautifully debunk this maddening, topsy-turvy thinking, while offering reassuring solutions and the tantalising feeling that maybe we’ll all be all right. Her five-minute podcasts of those columns are about as good as business writing gets.
