Click the image to the left to purchase SUBURBAN GLAMOUR prints.

The Heart Girl print is also still available to purchase from my shop. If you haven't seen it before, it's A2, printed on satin finish paper and is signed and numbered. It's £20 + £3 packing and shipping.

I can only work on comics like Phonogram and Suburban Glamour if I have enough money to live on, so selling prints is a really big part of that. Otherwise I have to stop and work on commissions, meaning the books can get delayed. So if you've wanted one of these but hadn't got round to ordering it, and you're interested in seeing more Phonogram and SG as soon as possible, then now would be a great time to order one!

There are many original artwork pages of Suburban Glamour available, and there are also still a few good original artwork pages left from Phonogram, so if any of those take your fancy drop me an email at mckelvie AT gmail DOT com. 

The following pages of Suburban Glamour are available:

Issue 1: Everything except 2, 3, 5, 24.

Issue 2: Everything except 14, 15, 23.

Issue 3: Everything except 11, 17, 19.

The following pages of PG are available:

Issue 1: 3, 4, 10, 12, 13, 17, 22

Issue 2: 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 17, 18, 19.

Issue 3: Everything except 8, 18, 19, 22.

All of issues 4 and 5.

Issue 6: Everything except 7, 8 and 9.

I've made a new print of Astrid which you can preorder here. It's A3, limited to 50 copies, and signed and numbered. It looks like this:

The proof is being sent to me today, and then the print run will be started at the end of the week. Exciting! I've already sold about 45 of them, so if you want one you'd best make a move quickly.

All Sold Out!

Hello everyone,

Following a bit of interest I have made a limited edition print of the double page spread from Phonogram: Singles Club #4. It looks like this.

It's 16 by 20 inches, signed and numbered, and limited to 50 copies only. I've already sold about half, so if you want one, move quickly.

Subject:Phonogram Fanzine

Curated by Mr Matthew Sheret.

Phonogram wears a lot of influences on its sleeve. As much a product of C90’s and glitter as Kill Your Boyfriend and xerox paper, it’s an open love letter to a culture that continues to inspire it.

That’s precisely why the series alienates and embraces by equal measure: Phonogram fans *love* pop culture, even when they hate it. Life just wouldn’t be the same if we couldn’t break hearts with the strut that Love Is All puts in our footsteps or if Wanda Jackson’s fractured vocals didn’t cut through love’s bullshit for the two and half minutes of ‘Tongue Tied’. Choosing to believe that music could be magical wasn’t an issue, because Music IS Magic.

And, like the best kids wearing glitter, listening to mix-tapes and reading early Grant Morrisson, it seems like making a fanzine is the only sane response.

So this is an open call for submissions: Essays, pin-ups, poems, short stories, one-page-comics… anything that can be photocopied in black and white and answers the question “When did you know music was magic?”

The ‘zine, as yet untitled, will be produced in a short run for San Diego Comic Con, and will be sold at cost through the weekend until they run out. It’ll be around 40pages long, and will include sketches and fragments from the early stages of Phonogram’s inception.

I am super hard at work, as always. Right now finishing up issue 3 of Phonogram, and on to issue 4 before I fly out to Toronto on the 5th May for TCAF.

Subject:New people

Lots of new people have added me recently, I see. So, tell me who you are and what you're doing here.

Oh, also, please don't be offended if I don't add you back. This journal is as much a personal one as it is professional, and I do make friends-locked posts from time to time. If I've not added you back it's not that I hate you, I'm just trying to keep some semblance of privacy to things.

You might have missed it in the debate frenzy last night, but we put up a preview of The Singles Club, including five pages of the main story, and seven pages of art from the various back-up artists.

Good to see the Phonogram curse is still in place (remember when my computer blew up?).

I'm away from home and working on someone else's computer. Friday, the hard drive dies and I lose a week of work. In addition, it won't be ready until this Thursday at the earliest.

Been working on a range of Suburban Glamour t-shirts this week. Here are a few sketches of designs, as I develop them.

All still very rough, of course.

By the way, I emailed Experimental Jetset and they are totally cool with me making my own version of the t-shirt.

Subject:Things and stuff

Now that the dust has settled from San Diego, I am back into the swing of things, working on a) Phonogram 2, b) some more Kudos stuff, c) commissions (I seem to be spending more time on each one than intended, but it means they turn out nice), d) t-shirt designs for Urban Species and e) other stuff. Busy busy. So, to keep you amused:

Phonogram 2: The Singles Club advert - please distribute as you see fitCollapse )
Out in December. We've started a thread on it at Whitechapel. Feel free to join the discussion.

A commission of the Huntress and the QuestionCollapse )

And finally, a plug for a friend. Canada's most awesome Katie, Katie West, is having a FINAL EVER print sale to help with moving and wedding costs. Go here to view prints and find out how to order. Warning: Not worksafe.
