Thought Bubble 2017 information coming soon!


Friends of Thought Bubble: The Return of the Blog by thoughtbubblefestival

Good ‘morrow Bubblers! Plans for this year’s festival continue apace and remain highly secretive for the time being, but as it is only 269 days away (coincidentally also the number of feet jumped by Travis Pastrana in his rally car last December, thereby setting a new world record) rest assured all will be revealed in good time.

Until that momentous, er, moment we’re pleased to present you with a fresh installment in our rapidly growing series of small-press/indie comicker profiles. This week, for your viewing delight, we’re spotlighting the wonderful work of Philippa “The Juzzard” Rice, whose webcomic ‘My Cardboard Life’ is surely the greatest outcome of the era of the Kraft process. Proof of this can be seen in the gallery below by simply lowering your gaze a few degrees. See you after the jump.

Philippa Rice is an illustrator/animator living in London. Philippa completed an animation degree in 2007, and since then her hand rendered and stop-motion films (examples of which can be seen here) have been screened at animation festivals including Animation Block Party (New York) and Animac (Catalonia).

For the last year and a half Philippa has been making people feel sentimental towards recyclable materials with her webcomic My Cardboard Life. Philippa’s internet shopping addiction and habit of looking through bins have provided plenty of cardboard and paper supplies for making five new collage comic-strips every week.

As well as online comics, Philippa, aka “The Juzzard” makes mini-comics and ‘zines such as her illustrated activity booklet series Intricate Dwellings. All of these things can be seen on Philippa’s website and blog.

We at Thought Bubble towers are big fans of Philippa’s work, and ‘My Cardboard Life’ is one of the main reasons (besides not wanting to anger Gaia) that we started a recycling programme. Love comics; love the environment, yo.

That’s your lot for the present, I hope that you enjoyed it (sorry if you didn’t, I’ll try harder, I promise) and will be back in a fortnight for some more profiling goodness!

Scotty, beam us up.
