Ok so have not updated anything in a little bit, so here is a huge onslaught of things I've been up to! First off was at london with mr jack ryan burston yesterday selling the first edition of Melon Shrub at the THING 2010, web and independent comics fair! Was fairly quiet, but managed to sell 15/20 of our first batch and got a general vibe of appreciation so a really confident start to this zine hopefully becoming a permanent fixture!

Next, the mural for the jewellery quarter space that me and daisy are working on is pretty much complete, the version I've got up has had since small alterations, but nothing major was required to fix, so hurrah! We're aiming for it to get put up mid april along with maybe having a small function including the press to cover it! The other amazing news with this is that we now have secured permission to do an exhibition in mid may, which will updated closer to the time but worth getting excited about now! Ohh and a limited number of postcards are being made!

Have just submitted my three designs to the YCN for the o2 arena illustration brief, which worked out quite nicely if for at the least giving me a new batch of characters to play with!

Lastly I've been accepted into the Just Us collective, but that's all still abit vague so will update once the website goes live! On top of that I'll be putting more work into the Creative in Birmingham shop in the bullring on tuesday, if anyone has a request of my work make sure to ask now!

I think I may catch up on sleep now.....


  1. Hello Murray, I got Melon Shrub #1 at that Thing and as I mentioned to you and Jack, it's ace and really stood out for me. I really hope to see more issues soon!

    It's good to see more of your fine work here, I'll keep an eye on it...

  2. Hey Simon! Yea I remember you, with the really nice kind words! I actually looked you up from your postcard you gave us and I found your flickr, your comics are ace! Really like your style, has a really awesome finished quality to it! Def keep an eye out, as when we expand Melon Shrub would be great to have you involved!
