The last six months have been, to say the least, insanely busy. Dominated by graphic design and editorial work, I’ve been working on promotional materials for Royal Mile Silver as well as creating stories for long-term clients FingerLINK, online materials for Safe Place Counselling and continuing to contribute to Knight Errant Press. October and November have seen as gradual winding up of client work in preparation for a new adventure!
This week I started a new full-time position at DC Thomson in their Heritage Brands department, working on comics such as Commando, Oor Wullie, The Broons and other vintage and archive materials.
Whilst working there I will no longer be available for freelance work and will be turning my creative energies to other personal projects outside of work hours. If you’d like to keep up with these, you can watch for updates here.
Gosh, it’s all been rather full on… but last Saturday, Knight Errant Press finally launched F, M or Other at the fabulous Lovecrumbs bakery in Edinburgh. Time is short, but here’s a quick peek… more info on where, when and how you can buy volume one of this mammoth anthology coming very soon..!
If you’ve been following this blog you’ll know I’ve been co-editing and producing Knight Errant Press’ first anthology Quarrels with the Gender Binary. A few days ago the deadline passed and we managed to successfuly acquire the funds we need to finalise and print this wee beastie, as well as compensate our many talented contributors who have come from worldwide to participate in this unique and pertinent collection.
You can continue following the progress of the book at its official Kickstarter page and receive updates on the team, production, printing and when it will be available for sale.
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed their time, funds – or just spread the word to support minority voices in the publishing industry.
