Shoodles (a portmanteau of s**t doodles) was never meant to be a comic. It started as my way of trying to make sense of my thoughts and one day, while feeling unusually cavalier, I posted some on twitter. It took quite a while to get the collection together, such is the nature of anxiety and depression, but here it is. My aim when compiling the zine was to make it accessible and relatable, and hopefully by sharing my experience someone out there reading it might feel less alone.
I'm looking to raise £250 to cover the print costs!
Brain Shoodles is a 28 page A5 black and white zine printed by the ever-excellent Comic Printing UK on 120gsm silk recycled paper. It's written and drawn by me, with caption letters by the ubiquitous Rob Jones. There's even a foreword by Worry Wart's Dani M. Abram.
The zine is finished and all the rewards are ready to go so, if successful, they’ll be sent to print as soon as the Kickstarter ends and will be posted out to backers shortly after.
You can choose a copy of the zine, a signed copy of the zine, an A4 colour print by Jim Bampfield, a personalised postcard, one of the original Brain Shoodles pages, the original art for the cover or you can even have the whole book dedicated to you. Plus every backer gets their name on the thank you page.
