This week, comic artist and illustrator Jeffrey Brown joins us for It’s Not Us. Jeffrey’s work is at once warm, funny and inherently human – laying to paper the minutiae of relationships, his superhero alter ego and his love of robots.
‘Here’s a taste of the cover artwork (it’s still being designed) for my book Little Things which will come out next April. It’s a collection of shorter autobiographical comics – a dozen stories from 80 pages or so down to 5 or 10 pages long, with a few 20-40 page stories. The first story was drawn a couple years ago, so it’s been a long time in the making, and I’m looking forward to finishing it up and having a printed book to hold finally.’
