the strumpet - on pikaland

My interview with the ladies behind The Strumpet comics anthology went up on Pikaland today. Read it here:

The Strumpet is a new comic anthology from the ladies behind the Whores Of Mensa comics (which were published in the UK between 2004-2010). The Strumpet brings together a brilliant team of female comics artists from the UK and USA, to produce a transatlantic collaborative publication containing eclectic illustrative and comics styles and techniques, and unique stories around the theme of ‘Dress-Up’.

The interview discusses the comic, the Kickstarter campaign funding the first issue, plus, drawing tools, self-confidence, the politics of "women in comics" and the importance of self-publishing.

Huge thanks to Ellen Lindner, Jeremy Day, Mardou, Patrice Aggs, Megan Kelso, Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg, Kripa Joshi, and Tanya Meditzky ♥ to you all for being terrific interviewees, and for collaborating on this project.
