Gronk Island

Hello people!

As some might know the Observer/Cape/Comica comic competition has finally chosen a winner.
I did enter again this year, sadly I didn't win anything.

But I'm happy to take part each time since it still pushes me to create something new!

This short story I made was inspired by a dream I had just before falling asleep, thats why it is a bit spacey. It took me ages to complete and I can honestly say I had a massive blister on my thumb by the time it was done.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed drawing it!

Lots of love,

Anna D.

Tiny Pencil drawathon


Just wanted to share that I entered a twitter competition this summer, run by the awe inspiring Tiny Pencil, and Atlantic Press!
The rules were to draw an image (or images), with pencils of course, under the title As Above So Below.

Sadly I wasn't among the three winners, but I did win a random prize! Which included a poster, a comic, fancy pencils, erasers, stickers, etc!

And I had a huge following with my image! I wanted to share it here if there are people that missed it!


Lots of love,

Anna D.

Zuper Zombie Fun Time lucky 13

Finally came back from a lovely break from London. Was planning to keep on updating my weekly zombie, but my wifi had other plans. Either way, was a nice escape and had more time thinking up new bad puns for more zombies! Wohey! I will be selling some comics and nifty gifty stuff you can enjoy.

Also, exciting news! Comiket will take place at the British Library this Saturday the 16th, and I will have a table there for the first time ever! 
So please come and say hi if you are indeed passing by! 

In the meantime, do take a break every once in a while from your phones otherwise this might happen. 

Lots of love,

Anna D.

I just couldn't resist. I know its probably been done loads of times before, but sometimes a joke is just too good not to join in on.

He would be a brilliant zombie!

Zuper Zombie Fun Time 7even

So I've been listening a lot to Pixies again lately, especially as their new album just come out.
Remembering back when I was 15 and thought Punk was awesome and that I'd always be listening/following/living it.

The irony of growing up.

Lots of love,

Zuper Zombie Fun Time no 5

It's Wednesday and I tripped over a retro poster that I got very inspired by!
Remember the old Coppertone girl and her naughty puppy? 

Either way, she has now been Zombiefied! 

Might colour her in better next week when I back home! 

Lots of love,

Zuper Zombie Fun Time Quatro

Hi folks,

If you did notice I'm one week behind, last week was empty due to family.
If you didn't notice, never mind!

Have you tried this new diet? It's amazing! Eat whatever you want and it just goes straight through you!
Downsides? Except having a gaping hole in your body and a hunger that can never be satisfied.
But no starvation will outweigh how good skinny feels!

Try it today! She did!

Lots of love,

Anna D.

Zuper Zombie Fun Time times 3

It's almost Wednesday! And I'm actually early! Still experimenting with the look of my zombies, and got inspired by some gorgeous images I found on the net. Wish I could share it but I got no name of the artist. 

Still, it is time for date night for my new ladyfriend, heard she's a man eater. Hehe

Lots of love,

Anna D.

John, my husband helping me out
Hi y'all!

Just came back last weekend from Oxford, were I got to enjoy some more of the local talent! As well as to exhibit some of my latest illustrations using Illustrator,

Other news is that Fusion Art has a new roof, with a beautiful skylight!


We also had some more art from Theo Peters, who did the poster for the show AND the album artwork for Freada! And some gorgeous ceramics from Aiden Canaday, and more.
