Assorted A5 titles including:
a short, b/w 8 pager about trauma and fixation following a scary event. It helped solidify the things I did remember, and contextualise the repeated anxiety of what could have happened. Turned out that this is a therapy technique sometimes used to help patients from spiralling, to express their feelings and have reference to a chronological narrative.
Rosa Praed: a queer spectre (2016)
a vast research project I did out of excitement for finding a female Australian author who'd been present in the circles of Arthur Conan Doyle, Oscar Wilde and Bram Stoker, was writing vampire fiction BEFORE Bram Stoker, and was LIKELY in a long term same sex relationship. So this is a compilation of quotes, my commentary, photos, drawings, while I spiralled further into this research hole.
Don't F*ck The Bear and other life lessons from fairytales (2017)
commentary on some of my favourite, or most memorable, spooky stories. Mention of Angela Carter's Bloody Chamber stories, Crimson Peak, Selkies, Cocteau's Belle et la Bete, Bluebear, Allerleirauh (or Donkeyskin), The Yellow Wallpaper and others.
Big and Little (2019)
Loosely based on the euphoric tangents of farm life Lee Pace goes on during interviews. It's about a small rowdy girl's life in the shadow of a truly enormous boy, content to ramble about the countryside. It's a bit murdery, then it's extremely cute. The inkwork in this is so sentimental and intense and detailed. A lovely time.
A truly delightful project to draw a picture of Lee Pace every day during the month of October for the #inktober challenge. It started as a joke in response to everyone posting their diverse lists of prompts for the coming month, cavalierly suggesting I draw Lee Pace every day, and then absolutely following through and having an extremely good time (a spiritual prequel to Big and Little)
