Anonymous asked: Hallo Miss Wallander, I met you last October at the Bristol Zine & Comics Fair, where I was sat on the table next to yours, and bought two of your wonderful books. Not so much a question, more just to say keep up the rather beautiful and strange work, I'm particularly loving the small conversations strips, in mood they remind me of Linus and Charlie Brown leaning on the wall. Best wishes ! Paul Ashley Brown

Hi! I remember! I wasn’t sure whether it was appropriate to answer this publicly or not so I left it sitting for a while … I just re-read your zine A Life in the Day and found it thoroughly depressing. It’s good. Thank you for the encouragement, and likewise! Hope I can come to Bristol CZF again this year, it was lovely. All the best!

I’m making lots of images of these characters for my upcoming degree show … here’s one that I’m fond of. It’s a nod to this painting by John Bauer, a classic Swedish illustrator who influenced me loads when I was learning to draw.

DO YOU LIKE DOGS?
Well too bad because these are dorgses. A dorgse is a mixed breed of horse and dog, originally sprung from the fact that I haven’t used references for my drawings for a long time.

I’m working on making more of this strip! I feel like I’ve found a form that I really like … for now anyway. From now on this ongoing comic project goes by the name Slowly Dying. Tell your friends and colleagues, your pets and your divided selves - it’s time to start Slowly Dying.

(Disclaimer: May get bored of this comic shortly after posting this.)

Here’s a zine I made a while ago. I made a few copies of this, some of which were left at Desert Island when I visited New York, to be given out for free (did anyone on here get one?!) … I’ve put it on my Gumroad too, for anyone who prefers to download PDF’s - it’s free or pay what you want: https://gumroad.com/disawallander

Maybe I should draw with sharpies more … hum hum. It’s kind of brutal …

As she struck a graceful pose in the morning sunlight, he knew immediately that she was the most beautiful woman on the planet. Pink and shiny from an intense biceps workout, she flaunted her perfect shape: the bulging upper arms tapering off into slim wrists and unevenly sized hands. A rich carpet of shiny hair flowed from her armpits and accentuated perfectly her womanly square frame. He wept for he knew that his new neighbour would probably not at all be flattered by his infatuated spying on her: oh, cruel world! He threw his telescopic lens aside and decided to go away forever, or something like that.
