Look at all these brilliant books!!
This is just a snapshot of the 10 brand new comics and zines published here at Out of the Blueprint to mark the Year of Young People 2018. We’ve helped artists aged 14 to 24 from across Scotland to develop their ideas, learn how to prepare their artwork for riso, and create their own publication to show the world.
Over the past couple of months we've been very lucky to work with Glad, Alistair, Clair, Jasmine, Sarah, Jack, Elspeth, Nicola, Aoife and Zuzanna, who have all brought their own unique skills and stories into book form. Featuring stories of long-distance lovers, honey badgers, Dungeons & Dragons, robot romances, the human body, unhealthy relationships, flights of fantasy, slow travel, cats, and vegetables taking over the world. We hope you love them all as much as we do!
We launched the 10 comics and zines at ECAF, a massive comic art festival at the Drill Hall organised alongside BHP Comics. We were delighted that so many of the artists came along to celebrate with us, and they were right at home amongst the graphic novelists, comic book artists and zinemakers. We were overwhelmed with the response from comic-lovers on the day, and proud that our young artists are getting the recognition they deserve!
Each of the comics are now available to buy in our online shop.
