Awkward Silence – Pages from the Comic

My new comic Awkward Silence is on my Etsy store right now. You can buy the comic here.
Some information on the comic is below along with some images.

Awkward Silence is a personal comic book that looks at quietness and solitude in a loud world. The story follows the creator as they look at how loudness and quietness has affected them and changed how they communicate with other people and their environment. Being mute and not being able to speak has many implications and these are delicately presented in this intimate and experimental comic book memoir.

Prosopagnosia at SQIFF 2021

My short animated documentary Prosopagnosia will be screening at the Scottish Queer International Film Festival 2021 on Saturday 9 October in Glasgow. This is one of my favourite festivals and my previous film Dix Pix screened in 2019. This is also the first in person screening of Prosopagnosia.

I will also be talking at the Documentary Workshop on Sunday 9 October. Here I will present some ideas about identity in creative documentary and I will talk about making Prosopagnosia.

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.
