So the media are declaring that the 'greatest British summer' has now passed because the Olympics are over. It has been a busy time. Way back in June, thousands of people watched a very rich, old lady float down a river to celebrate her not being dead yet. I covered the Jubilee for Private Eye (issue #1316) and then did another report for French newspaper Charlie Hebdo. The reports shared a couple images and interviews but were quite different.
Due to a technical problem with emails, the Charlie Hebdo report never saw print or the light of day. Until now! Suite à une erreur technique (e-mail), mon reportage de la Jubile en juin n'été jamais dans Charlie Hebdo. Donc voila!

Covering the BBC Proms for Private Eye AND the hip 1-2-3-4 festival for Stool Pigeon all in one week. My ears are still ringing.
Grab the excellent Private Eye magazine up now for £1.50 at a billion newsagents in the UK. (supermarkets too but please support a smaller business)

Oh and out this week too there's a one page comic I've done in the new issue of the highly recommended magazine Your Days Are Numbered. It's issue 3 and it's distributed across the UK in graphic stores, comic shops, cafes and record stores. And damn it, it's FREE too! (I'll never get rich this way)
More info on the mag and some of their stellar interviews are here - www.yourdaysarenumberedmag.com
A little unfinished comic sketch to even up the words / pictures ratio.
(Pour mon lecteurs français, quelques cool informations très bientôt!)
