Whilst graphic designing and sign-making for Whole Foods Market, I am still working on my comics for Aces Weekly, visiting comic cons and sketching!
I stayed with a french family in France and took my sketchbook with me. Here are a few of the sketches from my book:
I also recently had a table at Macclesfield comic con where I promoted my comics in Aces Weekly. You can read my comics among many others from the greats at: http://acesweekly.co.uk/
Last Thursday is back for its second and final installment on January 11th. London has been deliberately flooded by the Last Thursdayists, but why? Who came up with Last Thursdayism? And why does their leader want our protagonist dead? Read this exciting comic and catch up on previous chapters at: http://www.acesweekly.co.uk/vol18-issue1
Its wonderful that Pipedream Comics included Aces Weekly in it’s top ten digital comics of 2015. The top ten are a talented collection of different comics, which is great to see. And thank you to Pipedream Comics for their kind comments about Last Thursday:
“This year’s stand out has been Last Thursday from Emma Chinnery, with it’s time shifting narrative and sublime black and white artwork on sepia paper that feels incredibly tactile in this digital world.” – Pipedream Comics

Scouring the internet during the obligitory brain downtime, I came across the fake religion – Last Thursdayism. So inspired was I by people who create a fake religions in their spare time, that I felt compelled to write a story. And here we are, my new comic ‘Last Thursday’ is coming soon (September 7th) to Aces Weekly.
Last Thursdayism isn’t a fake religion, it’s real. And you’d better believe it.

Apologies for such a gap between this post and the last, I have been creating a comic for Aces Weekly and learning to be a Signmaker at Whole Foods Market (been a bit busy).
I am very grateful to be able to create for Aces Weekly which has provided an online publishing platform for many great comic book artists and storytellers. So make sure you read the next issue out on 2nd March 2014! Here are a few glimpses of my comic, drawn whilst listening to Stephen Fry’s new book More Fool Me, which I found funny and revealing about the world of the ‘celebrity’.
Secondly, I have discovered that writing on chalk boards is difficult but fun and a nice change to work in a neat clean graphical style rather than my usual inky mess. I love the whole look of WFM stores and if you haven’t visited one, do so immediately as they are so much fun!
I will try not to leave such a big gap before writing my next post. Thanks for reading 🙂
Here are four illustrations for Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens that I have created recently for the upcoming Bologna Children’s Book Fair. In my research for this project, I wasn’t entirely bound to my drawing board. I went on excursions out into the world and drew old buildings and their wonky beams and windows. Oliver Twist was always a favourite of mine ever since childhood so now it is lovely to have found the time to illustrate some of its most exiting moments.
I have decided to revisit this image and draw it again to see how I have improved over the last 8 months since I originally drew it’s predecessor. Evidently I feel that my 8 months ago self was seriously lacking knowledge of the way the world looks. Here below is the original image, and above is the new and hopefully improved image. Onwards and upwards.
