Happy new year!


Do you have any resolutions? I am quite unresolved this year, apart from my long-standing ‘eat less, exercise more’ one. I do have things I have to get finished – the illustrations for my novel, The Fall of Light, which I need to complete by April, the cover for Emma Martin’s forthcoming book, some comics for an exhibition and for a book. I also have my new book to start and I’m reading Antony Alpers’ The Life of Katherine Mansfield in preparation. But I’m not sure if to-do lists are the same thing as New Year’s Resolutions.

In the mean time, while I’m feeling too summery and languid to write comics, I thought I’d post my last month’s Metro comic, as the latest Metro is now on the new stands for you to buy, or flick through while you’re waiting in the supermarket queue. Click on it and you’ll find an even bigger size for easy reading. Oh, and if you have any resolutions you’d like to suggest – perhaps the kinds of comics you’d like to see more of – please leave a comment!

    I’m a bit late to see this, but having read pretty much everything there is about Katherine Mansfield, the biography I recommend the most is the new one by Kathleen Jones. All biographies have biases of course, but Alpers is insufferably patronising (though in his first, much earlier, biography he’s insufferably sycophantic), and most of the others have their own very obvious barrow to push depending on whether the biographers liked or not (they mostly don’t seem to). Biographers generally seem much more judgemental of their subjects than we are of our friends.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing what you create about her, and you!

    Oh, and, her journals are the best! Though I have to confess it’s much easier to read the edited ones John Middleton Murry edited rather than the more ‘verbatim’ ones.
