‘”Drawing pictures all day. Nice work if you can get it, eh? I suppose you haven’t had so much time to focus on a proper career…”‘
I am thrilled to announce that my first graphic novel, When Are You Going to Get a Proper Job? – Parenting and the Creative Muse, will be published by Singing Dragon on November 21st 2017.
Here’s what their site says about the book…
“This witty, insightful graphic novel explores the challenges faced by artists in today’s society, through the life of a comics creator named Tariq. Creative block is the least of Tariq’s worries, as he struggles to be a `good enough’ father while pursuing a career that is underpaid and underappreciated. Swapping notes with other parents in creative professions, and driven by his artistic muse, Tariq maps out a plan for making his art and his other responsibilities work together in harmony – most of the time.”
