I love making travel comics! Here’s a book-length comics journal I kept on a road trip around China with my family in 2011. The idea wasn’t to make a perfect comic (too many bumps in the road!), but to capture the wonder of being in a fascinating new place.
I made Riding the Alaska Marine Highway on a family trip to Seldovia, one of the locations that inspired the house in Oliver and the Seawigs and the Snowdovia setting in Pugs of the Frozen North, two of my books with Philip Reeve. My husband, Stuart, makes a special guest appearance with his comic, included at the end of this one.
Here’s a 24-page comic I made for a 24-Hour Comic Marathon, as part of the Lakes International Comics Festival. (A whole comic book in 24 hours and no sleep!) You can buy it as part of comics anthology called 24 by 7.
Airship is a Comics Jam I did with my friend David O’Connell. We choose the airship as our theme and took turns drawing one page at a time, with a one-hour time limit per page, aiming to finish at 24 pages. We never knew where the other person was going to take the story next, and it was loads of fun!
