She told me she was trouble…

I have finally finished the labour of love that is my graphic novel. It is eight double page spreads (some of them shown above) and is about the one and only Amy Winehouse. I wanted to tell her story using the very British, tongue in cheek- cor blimey- currant bun- attitude of the tabloid newspaper. Their incessant use of the pun, no matter how serious the story they are telling has always fascinated me, and there is nobody more relevant to demonstrate this than Amy; who has been constant tabloid fodder since 2006. It is all hand-drawn, in pencil, using genuine tabloid headlines. I’m thinking of selling them after my end of year show, contact me if you like what you see…
