Conversations with my Imaginary Friends – Work in Progress

I have been working on a new comic that is almost complete. It’s more of a self published perzine though as it features lots of text along with comic book pages.

The title is Conversations with my Imaginary Friends and looks at voice hearing and learning to live with mental health behaviours that can impact your life.

Conversations with my Imaginary Friends is a detailed look at coping mechanisms when you live with voice hearing. Schizophrenia is a commonly misinterpreted behaviour and one that affects many people in different ways. In Conversations with my Imaginary Friends I explore my coping mechanism of writing down what the voices in my head say. The comic includes the letters and words and also shows how the intrusion of voice hearing can be mitigated in a personal and intimate way.

What it Feels Like and Dix Pix win awards at the Neurodivergent Film Festival 2021

The Neurodivergent Film Festival took place online on July 10 2021. I had two films screening at the festival – What It Feels Like and Dix Pix. I am very pleased to say that both of these films picked up awards at the festival!!!

What it Feels Like was a winner in the Self Determination Category.

Meanwhile Dix Pix won in the Free Form Category. Dix Pix had previously been nominated and shortlisted for awards at several film festivals, but this is the first win. This is sixth award that What it Feels Like has picked up and I am so pleased that both films are still screening several years after they were completed.
