Eh well dear me that last post is an aeon ago – I almost was not born. A number of things have occurred and one of them is that LOAf 2 is very nearly baked and coming NEXT WEEK to all good comic and book shops (well, at least in London, Bristol, Cambridge and er, Paris) and even having a party at the very fine Eggs Milk Butter of Southgate Road, N1 (if you knew me before I was eight, it’s pretty much in my house). Here is a grand Becky poster:
And here is a smidgen of my slice of LOAf:
In Bristol, Cambridge and London you can now buy your very own LOAf magazine, featuring such fearsome comics as Lesley and Marvin and the Llamas de Muerte. On Wednesday, in sideways rain, LOAf caught ten buses, a tube and a train and got himself stocked in various fine London
emporia such as The Big Green Bookshop, Gosh! Comics, Eggs Milk Butter, Ti Pi Tin, Muswell Hill Bookshop and Cabbages and Kings. Bonanza! Your LOAf awaits. Also do come to the Cambridge launch if you can because it will be GRAND.
Over at the LOAf blog, we are thinking of ways to wear bread. I found drawing this ninja a bit beyond me really:
Then I got interested in pitta breads. Anyway, there’s some better bread here. LOAf magazine has raised 89% of its funding now, but could use a few more pennies if you’re feeling benevolent.
I’ve drawn three new cards for Earlybird: bearded men trampolining, balloonist beasts and a foxes’ pizza-party. Some of my original cards sold out (weird to think hundreds of people have been given my drawings, and cool – I hope they all had good birthdays/babies/sundry other life-events), so they reprinted those and commissioned these while they were at it.
Apparently, foxes are in, along with squirrels and owls. Owls are so above fashion though, surely? And I say foxes are never less than hip.
In other news, LOAf magazine has got half of its people-funding already, which is splendid! Please add a crumb or crust to the bread-basket if you can, it will undoubtedly make you more of a man.
By the way, I didn’t mean to imply squirrels were just a fad.
Imagine if there was no comics magazine for 9-12 year-olds called LOAf and all the bread and children in that age group were forced to read just any old comic that might be about frogs or carrots or anything. Well, shockingly, that is happening right now. Fortunately, some illustrators are trying to make a comics magazine called LOAf to up-end this sorry status quo, and while we are waiting for it we can give it some monies to get printed and/or watch a video about animate, literate bread.
I may or may not end up in LOAf, but some extremely excellent people will be in it, like maybe this one or this one or this one. I am excited and I am not even bread or 9-12 years old.
