It Could Be You

Since finishing on the dementia ward, I've been so, so, tired. I don't know what's the matter with me. I feel exhausted. My bones feel like lead, and all I do is sleep, sleep, sleep. It's really interfered with drawing further strips. But I'm muddling through, and have started another story, which should run to about six pages.

Noters have been very kind about this work, and thank you for that. Many have encouraged me to submit material to Nursing Times and other medical publications. I have a slight problem with this, because the whole Psychiatric Tales project is aimed very much at the general public, who know little of the mental health area. My rather lofty aim is to dispel a few myths and subvert prejudice, while writing strong, readable material.

I've almost completed the batch of stuff I'm planning to send off to publishers (3 stories, 16 pages). My ultimate hope is to get book deal for Psychiatric Tales (don't laugh), as well as having stories in comic anthologies.

Influences on this work include: Art Spiegelman, Frans Masereel, Majane Satrapi and Eddie Campbell.
