Red Neck Zine

I have made a new zine! It's called Red Neck. For a while now I've been mentioning that I've been playing around with making something like this and a couple of weeks ago, with the incentive of the Dundee Jamboree, I finally put it together.

Red Neck is a 28 page zine full of new drawings (all drawn in a 4-day marathon). I set out just to have fun making weird death & destruction pictures, the kind the crazy kid in your class might doodle in his schoolbooks. The end result, as you can imagine, is a little bit grisly but, I dunno, maybe kinda funny?

As an added thing, I knew I wanted to do a little bit of hand-colouring so 17 of the pages have red ink details. This was way more time consuming than I guessed it would be but hey, it means every single copy is unique and has a bit of a different look compared to the usual b&w zine style.

I don't want to post too many of the drawings yet as it kinda ruins the surprise a bit but I'll gradually put up a selection over the next couple of weeks. There are a few full-on patterny pages, some severed limbs, some skulls, some fire and a lot of blood. It's lovely though.

Of course, Red Neck is now available in my online shop. You can pick up your unique copy for the low, low price of £7. Man, I'm a bad salesman. Just have a look and see. Also, if anyone would like to stock a few copies in their shop etc. or needs any further info, contact me and we can sort something out.

I'm really hyped up for doing another zine soon, I've already got a few ideas in mind. Hopefully without the pressure of an immediate deadline I can really focus on doing something quite elaborate. Full colour? Huge? Tiny? Eh, maybe. Stay tuned. I'll also be putting up some new prints and things this week so subscribe if you haven't already for news on that (please).

So yeah, that's Red Neck. Available now. Thanks to Stuart for help at the print place and thanks to the Dundee Jamboree for providing the motivation to put it together. Here are the full details:
