varoom: some thoughts on social media

I've written an article for Varoom magazine, published by the Association of Illustrators! They gave me space to pour out what I really think about social media, and you might connect with some of the things I've written. It was behind a paywall when the issue was published, but they've only just made it public online. Do check out their magazine, it's lovely, and raises a lot of good issues about illustration and working in the field. You can follow Varoom on Twitter - @Varoommagazine and its editor Derek Brazell: @DerekBrazell.

Other news, our 24-Hour Comic Marathon anthology, 24 x 7, is up for an Eisner Award (the Oscars of comics)! And Kristyna Baczynski's story in it is up for another award! If you'd like to see our book win, you can vote for us here. :)

Unlike the Angoulême prize earlier this year, there's a record number of women nominated (and you can read a Washington Post article about it here.) Here's my blog post about making the seven comics short stories in our book, 24 x 7, and you can read a review and buy it in person or online from the wonderfully supportive Page 45 comic shop.
