I Won a Residency In Brussels!

Posted on Mar 23, 2012 in Uncategorised

This post has been delayed for a while by the flurry of THTG publicity, but finally I can announce the good news… While in Belgium for the exhibition I was lucky enough to receive a phone call telling me I’d won one of the places on a residency following the Brussels in Shorts Competition. The prize was organised by the literary organisation Het beschrijf who will commission 10 international comic strip artists (from Spain to Czech Republic and including fellow Brit William Goldsmith who I taught at londonprintstudio!) to create and publish a graphic short story on contemporary Brussels with the amazing publishing house Oogachtend. Really looking forward to learning more about the amazing comic scene in Belgium and meeting the other artists! Here is a clip on TV Brussels about the residency.

I will be in Brussels from 12th-26th April and will be doing a signing at Sterling Books on Friday 20th April at 7pm so come on down if you are there! Below is a photo of my application and a sneak peak of my story which is all about a magical 5 Euro note…
