Mega Update

After a bustling few weeks at Baczynski towers, there is much to tell the world.

Nine Lives - my new concertina comic is now officially available online, from my Big Cartel and Etsy shops. It debuted at Comiket in London last Saturday and the reception and feedback was overwhelming. Thanks to all who attended and those who pre-ordered too. I'm smitten as a multi-mortal kitten with it.
Thanks also to the fine people at Awesome Merchandise for the amazing printing services. Couldn't be happier.

No Guts No Glory - an excellent clothing and art emporium in Exeter has recently relaunched it's shop with some amazing wall art from Mister Millerchip and a new range of organic clothing.
I illustrated and designed a new tshirt design for their already formidable portfolio called 'New Shoots'. An ancient woodsman who takes a leap of faith, in a land of two colour screenprints. Available from NGNG on organic natural and white cotton shirts.

My 'New Shoots' design is also available as a limited edition of screenprinted posters! There are only 25 available from my Big Cartel or Etsy stores. Printed on amazing Ellie Poo paper.

Figrin D'an & The Modal Nodes - I printed and editioned my piece for the Star Wars May The Fourth show at Full Circle Gallery, Leeds this week. They go on sale at the exhibition and afterwards online, but email me if you want a copy as I won't be printing any more! One hit wonders, they are.
And finally! I'll be at Leeds Alternative Comics Fair (Saturday, Nation Of Shopkeepers) and Manchester Print Fair (Sunday, Night & Day) this weekend (double trouble) peddling all these wares and more! So I hope to see you there and thanks if you read this far. *exhale*

NEW BOOK: Nine Lives

Very happy to be able to share a new mini-book with the world!
'Nine Lives' follows an unfortunate feline fellow as he counts down his generous quota of lives.
Now available for pre-order on my newly streamlined Big Cartel storefront, which I hope will make paper purchases easier for new folks. Official online release is next Monday (23rd).

The book is premiering at Comica Comiket this Saturday in London! Hope to see you there if you're about in the southern smog.

Cantina Turner

The galactic smash hit record is here!

Figrin D'an & The Modal Nodes release their debut LP. Recorded in glorious Bith Tone and a mere 5 galactic credits, it's as light on the space-suit pockets as it is on the ear cavities (if your species has them).
Here's my finished piece for the May The Fourth Star Wars show, a record cover for the band who play the Cantina on Mos Eisley in Episode IV. A very limited edition of heavyweight prints will be available from the exhibition in May and online afterwards. Loved doing this piece... But, had that song in my head for days.

Be sure to follow May The 4th and The Hang Gang on twitter for updates on other contributors and the exhibition itself! Plus you can buy tickets for the opening event here.

Another Year, Another Easter

Spring is here, with eggs, flowers and partly cloudy skies. It also brings a new comic I drew for The Stool Pigeon issue #37, out this week. Just in time for the Easter bank holiday.

So please, while you enjoy your days exempt of work, chomping happily on hollow chocolate orbs, spare a thought for the man of the hour... Mr. Lapin. It's a tough ol' season.

May The Fourth

Here's a little work in progress snippet of a new piece. It's for a Star Wars show The Hang Gang are curating in Leeds on May 4th and I'm so very excited to be making a new picture for them.

This isn't due to HANG SOLO (!) as there is an amazing line up of 30 other artists all making galactic new work for it too.
