Awkward Silence – New Comic

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.

Awkward Silence is personal and expressive and will connect with readers who love zines, comics and outsider art.
Each copy is unique. The cover features hand stitching, where each individual copy has been sewn and hand bound.

Awkward Silence will appeal to people who like zines, perzines, queer zines and comics, graphic memoirs and graphic medicine comics.

  • 32 pages
  • Black and white (mostly)
  • Hand bound and stapled
  • Made with love and honesty.

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.

New Zine – Dix Pix

32 page colour zine with illustrations and text and available here.

Dix Pix looks at the queer male/trans/non-binary body and why it is common for people to send naked pictures via dating apps. The zine takes an experimental approach in its visual style and tackles themes of masculinity, queerness, solitude and the body.

Dix Pix features illustrations of dick pics that were sent to me over the gay dating app Grindr. Along with the images there are text messages and exchanges that also occurred over the app.

Gay dating and hookup apps such as Grindr have changed the way gay people communicate when looking for a partner. Face to face communication is not the first port of call. When using Grindr it’s very common to receive unsolicited pictures of naked people with penises or dick pics as they are also known. In Dix Pix I examine the need for the male (and other genders who have a penis) body to be exposed in order to gather attention through dating apps.

Available on my Etsy store.
The zine is based on the short film Dix Pix.

New Zine – NeuroQueer Cat Apocalypse

page black and white comic book zine + a cat badge 38mm (1.5inches)

The Zine + Badge can be bought here.

A large destructive cat is hurtling towards planet earth. If it hits, the cat will surely destroy the planet and all the people who live on it.

NeuroQueer Cat Apocalypse is a comic with a difference. You are asked 10 questions throughout the zine. You need to answer the questions from an autistic and queer perspective in order to survive. Answer correctly the planet is saved. Answer incorrectly and we all die.

NeuroQueer Cat Apocalypse combines humour, comic books and provocative questions to ask questions on autistic identity and the place of the autistic person in society. Each page features illustration and text, presenting an autistic and perspective on life.

The zine comes with a badge of a cat. The badge is in colour and zine is in black and white.

Designed and hand made by Steven Fraser.

Note this zine is not for kids.
