1. New book! 25th September (7pm) at Gosh Comics, London: a signing and launch of SOME COMICS BY STEPHEN COLLINS, a collection of my short comics old and unseen. Includes the best of the past five years of my editorial comics, as well as new and unseen work. Gosh have an exclusive bookplate edition on sale limited to 200 copies only, and will also be selling exclusive prints and displaying originals of my work. Come along and I’ll draw in a copy for you.

     

  2. A page from my next long story, as yet untitled. The full book is a couple of years off yet, but I’ve contributed an extract from it to Steak Night 4, which is debuting at the East London Comics and Arts Festival on 14th June. I have incredibly managed to double book myself with my summer holiday, so I’ve had to pull out of Elcaf, which I was gutted about. But you can go and buy a copy of Steak Night from Babak Gangei's table in the small press room.

  8. I did a wedding invite for my friends Matt and Katy. They live in Charlton, South London, and it took me a while to get this kind of geographically semi-accurate. Their house is inbetween the pigeon-bride-and-groom, and the perspective is looking south from the Thames with the O2 bottom right. The building top left is where they got married, and Charlton Athletic FC ground is in there too.

  12. I did this for a sketch swap with Roman Muradov. It was kind of unconsciously inspired by his stuff I think. Roman’s work is beautiful in all kinds of ways, you should look at it right now.

     

  13. Buzzfeed Moses: A collection of my shorter comics will be published in the UK this autumn by Jonathan Cape. It will be excitingly titled, Some Comics By Stephen Collins.

     

  14. Illo for a recent supplement in the Guardian about MBA courses.

     

  15. Focus magazine article about persistent science myths. Apparently there’s one which says that bees can’t actually fly.
