French Milk

Got this book 'French Milk' by Lucy Knisley via Bookmooch (a great site where you can swap books across the world) It's a great little graphic novel about living in Paris for a month. If you can't get enough of Paris she's also done another Paris journal comic and it's all online here. I also love the blog which documents her and her studios's The Burrow's work, check it out! She's also in the middle of her next graphic novel 'Relish' all about food which promises to be about cheese, foie gras and lots of other yummyness, can't wait!

Compound Magazine

I'm in the new Compound Magazine, it's a brand new online publication based on the idea of a 'visual mixtape' each person has dealt with a different song through illustration, design, writing, photography... and responded to the theme of Chemistry. This is it on the online viewer issu, go here. Thanks to Chris from studio alto for bringing it all into existence.
This is my image based on the You Me At Six song 'Contagious Chemistry'
I've put together all the songs here in a Spotify playlist called Compound Chemistry (It's missing a few as I couldn't find them all) so you can now listen along while looking at the images.
Issue 2 is open for submissions now on the theme of 'Versus' go here for more info, closing date is 29th May 2011!
