Tom Humberstone, whose work I’ve admired since his early mini comics like Art School Scum and his very honest autobiographical work on living with Crohn’s Disease, has been doing a lot of comics and cartooning pertaining to current events recently, notably for New Statesman and also the excellent Cartoon Movement site (which should be in your bookmarks pile). Tom’s just announced a couple of new projects for 2014, one a short four page work for the European Movement about the European Union and the UK’s place in it (timely given the rise of anti-European rhetoric and even calls for a referendum on staying part of the EU), which will be both online and in a printed pamphlet. The other is a longer piece, a forty eight pager in conjunction with Tjeerd Royaards, editor and founder of Cartoon Movement, again on a very current subject, one which, distressingly, we see almost every night on our news bulletins, humanitarian aid. The work, on behalf of Cordaid, will get a physical print run once all the chapters, detailing “the past, present and future of humanitarian aid” are completed.
