Welcome! I’m Debbie Jenkinson, an illustrator and author from Dublin.
I’m co-founder of the meet-up The Comics Lab, (which is back in action at DCAF) which explores story-telling in sequential formats. We initiated Ireland’s first Graphic Short Prize run with The Irish Times April 2019. We made an anthology of the 10 shortlisted entries which you can buy here.
You can click on the links above to read some of my comics. Currently I am finishing another long comic, about a homesick pharmacist living in exile in a small town in the Irish midlands.
My long form comic Ghosting won the Irish Comic News Awards’ OVERALL BEST IRISH COMIC 2020 and made The Irish Times’ Best Graphic Novel of 2021 list.
It is a graphic thriller about a Bus Eireann driver and a Italian chambermaid who goes missing.
You can order it on gumroad (book or pdf) here, and on Kindle here. Even better, you can purchase it in person (or online) at the wonderful Little Deer Comics, which is now a pop-up in Inchicore, Dublin 8.
