Hey, we found a studio! Viviane Schwarz and Gary Northfield and I were having a whinge on Twitter (jabberworks, vivschwarz and gnorthfield) about how much we went doolally working at home by ourselves, and we twittered and tweeted til we came to the solution of getting a studio together. And if all goes smoothly, we've got one, hooray!

It's one of 30 studios in an old Victorian police station (right next to a new police station) and wonderfully atmospheric, right down to the holding cells and fingerprinting room. And there's a big yard out back where we can have barbecue parties, and a couple gallery spaces on the premises that we can rent at discount... this is going to be good.

Oddly, all three of us have done recent comics featuring sheep, so that is why I drew this mish-mash. I'm really excited at the prospect of working in the same room with two such talented people, whooie! We celebrated with a pint at the Dog & Bell, where I found out that all three of us like to sing nonsense songs while we work; this could be highly amusing.

Edit: (Here's Viviane's take on things.)

Congrats! I'd love to have a studio. Sadly, living in Manhattan, it might be to expensive.

Yeah, it's been too expensive for me in the past, but I'm finally getting some good work in. I'm not rolling in money, but at least I can get a studio now!

Those are awesome! I just posted them up on my blog, hope that's okay. :-)

Alright! That sounds like a very cool space and I hope it makes you all super productive and less "doolally"(never heard that one before!)

Doo daa daa de doo daa daa daa... oh I happy mutant sheep days ahead!
Am already imagining looking for a desk and whatever else a studio must have on Deptford & Greenwich markets & lugging it back there.
Too exciting!!!

Ooh, yes, I'll need to get a good work table! And some drawers for materials and we'll probably all need some shelves for books!

I am looking forward to all the singing! Maybe there's a name for us there somewhere...
