This July I went on a little holiday to Glasgow, the Isle of Bute and Newcastle, had a great time and decided to make a zine about it. Amongst other things, the zine features stuff on getting the sleeper train from London to Glasgow, an ode to all the amazing carbs I ate, what happens when a bunch of radical librarians end up in a karaoke bar, what I think Metro Ken from the Newcastle Metro looks like, why you should visit Bute, and the recipe for a Buckfast negroni.
At our staff conference this year I ran a workshop showing a group of people how to make mini zines. This is what I came up with in 50 minutes: Victorian ladies being threatening.

So, late at the end of last year I became a cat owner. This is Bennie:
I spend more time than I should in bed, wasting time reading stuff on my phone and sometimes he comes in, jumps up on my bed and plonks himself right in my face so I can’t see my phone and have to fuss him. This is a comic about that.
