It’s been a busy year one way or another – I need to do another post explaining what has been going off in the world of Tinynoggin. In the meantime, though, I thought I should post about my new book and merchandise.
Do you know the film “auteur” Neil Breen? No?! Why not?!! Look him up now, watch his films and support indie film makers. Last month I was lucky enough to attend the UK premiere of his new film, Twisted Pair in Bristol, screened along with an old favourite, Fateful Findings. Trust me, you have to see these films.
Anyway, Neil Breen inspired my latest small press book: Neil Breen’s Cosmic Blowtorch.
It’s not just about Neil Breen, it’s my usual brand of pop culture nonsense, very niche and probably not everyone’s cup of tea. Others featured in NB’sCB include Kojak, Shia LaBeouf, Dennis Hopper, Coronation Street’s Ken Barlow, Miriam Margolyes, Angelina Jolie, Tears for Fears, Hank Kingsley, Nighty Night’s Glen Bulb, She-Ra, Steven Seagal, Wings Hauser and Kurtwood Smith. It’s kind of like a “believe it or not” book – some of the things in it are just straight out of my strange mind, but others are surprisingly true. There’s more of the former than the latter though, it’s fair to say.
I have been so busy lately I haven’t even managed to make this book available on Etsy yet, but I promise to do so soon. Don’t want to disappoint those Neil Breen fans!
Other than that, I have made a start on the second volume of Nic Cage, Actor for Hire. There’s still a lot to do on that but hopefully it will be ready in spring 2019. Have you seen Mandy yet? See it as soon as you can, it’s awesome.
What else? I have made some vinyl stickers and a pocket mirror too. One sticker is Nic Cage in Face/Off dressed as the sexy, crazy priest, but the others are all David Lynch related – my favourite is the Eraserhead lady in the radiator sticker, but I have a real soft spot for my Laura Dern Blue Velvet picture too. The Dale Cooper pocket mirror won me a like from Kyle Maclachlan on Twitter, which I was well chuffed about. I knew there was a reason why I make this stuff!
These will go up on Etsy soon as well. I plan to be at some small press / comics / zines events in 2019 and I’ll have all of my books and stuff for sale then.
More news soon!
