Right, so, after a brief hiatus, covered admirably by the ‘Best of the Web Series’ (installments of which can be found here and here), the internet phenomenon known as the Small-Press and Independent Friends of Thought Bubble (or Defenders of the Mirth) is back once again to astound and delight. This week’s friend is Lizz Lunney whose online comic sushi serves up bite-size portions of excellence to eat-in or take-away on a regular basis – a tasting menu can be found below (click on the images to enlarge) – and are a fine example of haute bandes dessinées cuisine.
Lizz is an illustrator and animator from Birmingham. Amongst other things she likes black tea, knitting and cats. Other animals she thinks are good include rabbits, elves, bears, dragons, unicorns, monkeys, dinosaurs, lions, tigers and meercats.
Lizz’s latest comic is ‘Sushi Karaoke’ which comes with free 3D glasses. Her previous work includes ‘I Love Dinosaurs and they Love Me’ 2008, ‘Tofu and Cats” 2007, ‘Party Animals’ 2007, ‘Waiting for Sushi’ 2006, and ‘Bears in your Face/The Man with Tetris on his Chin’ and ‘Cat Hearts/Peanut butter and Marshmallows’ two colourful flip comics. In May 2008 she became one of the artists for the Top Shelf 2 online comic. Other examples of her illustrative work can be found in her online sketchbook.
Lizz’s site also features examples of her brilliant animation work as well as a shop from which you can purchase all sorts of excellent gifts. This month also sees the start of the one-a-day comic sushi extravaganza, which can be found here. For more information on Lizz’s work please visit her site, her blog, or check out her MySpace page.
As with all the Friends of Thought Bubble, Lizz will be appearing at this year’s convention at Savile’s Hall, Leeds, on the 21st November.
All good things must come to an end, and Friends of Thought Bubble posts are no exception to this age-old adage, so without much further ado I’ll say fare thee well for now and hopefully will see you back here in a week or so with either another Friend of Thought Bubble in tow or a further installment of our Best of the Web series. May the force be with you, always.
Latest news hot of the (small) press: a new workshop has just been announced for later in the year and it’s one all you comic lovers will, well, love!
Thurs Oct 9th 6.30 to 10.00pm Travelling Man Leeds
This October sees an incredible masterclass lead by industry genius Adi Granov. Adi made a huge impact on the comics scene a number of years ago as one of Marvel’s young guns. Since then he has gone from strength to strength, with an exceptional run of covers for various Marvel titles, the brilliant Iron Man Extremis with Warren Ellis and mind blowing concept work for the Iron Man movies, Adi has become one of the comic book industry’s shining stars!
Numbers are very limited so sign up soon to secure a place. (firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0113 2436461)
Adi will also be appearing at this year’s Thought Bubble convention, but for a unique opportunity to see a truly great comic artist at work this workshop is not to be missed!
