A fantastically conscious discussion last night from MANDEM at Goldsmith's University, about how race and class affect the image and role of fatherhood. The discussion was particularly insightful regarding the issues of black male masculinity and the negative connotations that have been perpetuated in the media, as well as the flexibility of fatherhood, i.e does it have to be your biological father who plays the role of the father. I'm very glad to have been asked to do the illustration for this event and it was awesome seeing it projected up there behind the four incisive panelists.
There are future plans to work again with MANDEM and you can keep up to date with their articles and all future events here- https://mandemhood.com/mandemhood.com/
This years BCZF at The Fire Station, was even more packed out than last year! So many great illustrators were there and it was cool to be able to sell my Untold Comic series alongside them for the first time. There was an exceptional talk from Hamja Ahsan, about the history of zine's and their political power. I had a fantastic chat with him afterwards and brought his latest book 'Shy Radicals: The Antisystemic Politics of the Militant Introvert' which you can purchase here- https://www.bookworks.org.uk/node/1917
