This webcomic was originally serialised on Instagram, improvised strip-by-strip, but it’s been expanded and slightly reworked for posting as a complete story here.
Thanks very much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it!
In a rare foray into the world of enormous comics conventions, I’ll be making my debut at Thought Bubble in Leeds this weekend (23rd & 24th September), with my various comics, prints, greetings cards and original drawings for sale.
Find me at table 56a in the Leeds Town Hall Marquee!
Ashley here is a heroine inspired by some of the incredible women from archaeological history. She lives her adventurous life by the watchwords ‘Explore! Protect! Save!’ which I’ve tried to capture in the comic strip.
As the Aegean gallery, full of Sir Arthur Evans’ wonderful discoveries, has long been one of my favourite corners of the museum, I enjoyed drawing Ashley examining some approximation of a Minoan jug here too.
The event is on Friday 29th January from 7pm. You can find out more about the evening, which promises a host of performances, talks, workshops and more, and purchase your tickets here. Perhaps I’ll see you there!
This project is a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to seeing it grow even more tangled and strange as more people join in. There’s no beginning or end, just dive in and enjoy getting lost in it – you’ll discover lots of brilliant artists too.
