Helsinki here we come

Thanks to funding from Culture Ireland, and support from the Irish embassy of Finland, three Stray Lines artists, Alan Dunne, Elida Maiques and me are off to the wonderful Helsinki Comics Festival at the beginning of September. It’s been a long plan in the making with a lot of scheming and dreaming, and writing of proposals, but suddenly September is almost here, the plan has become reality and we are nearly ready to go. We’re going to perform some of our stories to a live audience – a new way of sharing a comic – a whole new avenue opening up to us which is a genuine thrill to explore.

Alan has created a sting for us.

Also please admire our Stray Lines logo, designed by Paddy Lynch, founder of Stray Lines, now animated by Alan:
