Some Comics on Tapastic

Hello everyone,
I've recently been uploading my not-so-daily comics onto this great website I've discovered recently: Tapastic.

Here's the link!

I came across it whilst looking for where I could host a webcomic (for an upcoming project with a writer) and it seems pretty good, and it's available as an App. Which is cool but unfortunately I have a windows phone and I can't get the App - sad times, but maybe you can! I've put all the comics from my website and blog on there and I've recently scanned all of the comics I've drawn in my sketchbook which you may have seen on my Instagram. I'll be uploading those daily for at least the next week and then I'll work out a method of keeping them daily as I draw them. The good thing about Tapastic is that you can schedule uploads so if I just sit down and colour a bunch I can get working on new comics in the time it takes.

Here's a couple that I've uploaded recently.

Thanks for reading! :)

Dr Apple

I drew this comic yesterday and decided to post it on Imgur to try branch out on the ol' social medias.

Here it is in separate pages, 9 in total :)

Edencon and Lancaster Comics Day 2015

This year two new conventions started; Edencon in Carlisle, held at the University of Cumbria, and Lancaster Comics Day, held in Lancaster Library, in Lancaster. (Lancaster.) 

This is great news for the comics industry, it's good to see events start up. Perhaps it's just because I'm from a small seaside town but comics haven't really been big in the UK but it looks like that's changing. WHICH IS GREAT. I'm sure there's more events that have propped up this year or in recent years (LICAF in Kendal to name one) but I'm rambling about these specific events because I attended them both on the University of Cumbria Comic Book Collective stall (or UOCCBC). Unlike previous times I've sat on the stall, at Edencon I was trusted to set up the stall and manage it for the most part of the day. I think it wasn't long after Edencon that I discovered Lancaster Comics Day was starting and so I brought it to the attention of Lecturer/Bagatelle Editor Nick Dodds. Unfortunately he couldn't make it but instead sent me with all the usual products and in charge of the stall for the day. Which was good experience.

Anyway, here's a few of photos from Edencon 2015 and Lancaster Comics Day 2015 which turns out to not be many because I didn't take a lot of photos.

The table for Edencon. We were seated behind the stage where talks and competitions were being held.

The table for Lancaster Comics Day, which they labelled with my name and not UOCCBC. 

Both events were great days, it's always a pleasure to sit on the stalls selling Bagatelle as well as some old University publications and my work/work of other students. I had my latest comic ready for Lancaster Comics Day as well which was exciting to be selling my own work that I'd printed a small run of. After Lancaster Comics Day, I talked with the good people at First Age Comics in Lancaster and stocked my own comic as well as all 4 issues of the comic anthology Bagatelle. So if you happen to be in Lancaster you can find them at First Age Comics:

FIRST AGE COMICS are located at 3 Moor Lane, Lancaster - one of the most historic streets in the city. If you're ever in the area and would like to visit, our opening hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm.

"nice shelf!" - Nick Dodds

What's next up for UOCCBC and myself? The Lakes International Comic Art Festival 2015 on the 17th and 18th October in Kendal which I'll be attending again for the third year running. This time I'm staying in Kendal for the full weekend to experience it without the worries of uni work and travel which I'm very much looking forward to.

Been a while...

Wow. I've not used my blog in a while. I suppose because the end of my course got a little hectic at the end and then once moving back to Morecambe I decided to have a break for the Summer. No excuse really.

So my last post was a daily comic, I drew one more after that at the time about growing basil. Thrilling stuff, here's said comic.

I made an ISSUU book collecting them which you can view on the books page of my website, I also made a book collecting the Twitter Illustrations which you can also find on the books page. Link here
There's also a couple of other ISSUU books of mine that you can find there.

That's just part one of many catch-up stories, I'll try keep them somewhat chronological.

The Woman who cried Scandal

Dog Diner Logo

I'm currently working on a project with Derrian Bradder where we're creating a new image for a fictional Dog Diner, like a Cat CafĂ© but with dogs instead. Among the various pieces we'll be making, one is the logo. Below are some of the steps we took to reach the final logo.

Alien Nation

Editorial illustration for an article titled 'Alien Nation' wrote by Stephen Pincock from FT magazine January 2005.

This illustrates a specific part of the article - 
"Meanwhile, as astrobiologists engage in these serious projects, movie makers still can't get past the idea of little green men."

Robert Marlowe, Runners, Marlowe again and Ear balloons

 Because my comics have been about the mundane happenings of my life I've decided to bring in a character to do little stories and add a bit of variation in my daily comics. He's a sort of parody of noir detectives and a bit of Sherlock Holmes but with a big moustache.

News, Nosebleeds, Eggs and Frank

I post these daily (not necessarily Saturday and Sunday) on my twitter @edwinburrow.

I got one of those new coins

I was going for the Queen taking a selfie for this but I'm not sure if it comes across. The hashtags on the coin for those who can't see are: #2015 #QUEEN4LYF #YOUNEVERBEROYALS #DOLLADOLLA #YOLO

Why the long face?

Another illustrated tweet! This time from a comedian who is/used to be part of comedy troupe Picnicface.
Trying this method out again, quite like the marks made but it needs refining still.

Lobotomobile, Irish Cricket and THE DRESS

THE DRESS, a topic of much discussion on the 27/02/15, is it blue and black? Is it white and gold? It's blue and black.
