books and zines

Where is my mind? 

68 pages long, featuring illustrations of shows such as ACMS, Gein's Family Giftshop, Mark Watson's Festival of Bad Ideas, Amusical and a bunch of solo stand-up hours, performed in 14 different venues across Edinburgh.

"Where is my mind? In a bustling bar, sorting through a collection of flyers before queueing for the fourth show of the day, having two conversations at once and trying to retain every face, sight, smell* and turn of phrase in some sort of mental filing cabinet to look over sometime in the indeterminate future.

This is a collection of illustrations inspired by everything and everyone I saw at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017.

 


*Except that of the Hive. I wish I could purge thatparticular memory from my forever tainted nostrils."

Support Local Live Comedy Zine

DOWNLOAD A FREE COPY HERE (or have one posted to you by clicking on the picture >>> )

"Guys, guys - before you leave, I brought my guitar and I thought maybe we could 'jam' about supporting local comedy, yeah? Cool cool cool."

"Hey gang, so it’s actually really important to support local comedy, yeah? Sweet, let’s do some groovy leafleting."

These are both things you can say to your really cool friends when you show them a copy of this zine, and then force them to photocopy it because you're a cool but intense fan of local comedy. We don't want to charge you for what is essentially the most earnest zine in the world, but bung us a quid (and a bit because of stupid listing fees) and we'll post you one. Alternatively, if you meet Lise at a gig, she'll give you a copy (seriously, just take them from her, spare the rest of the audience).

16 pages, black and white.

The Bumper Book of Comedy Colouring (Vol. 1)

"Lise and Jenny were basking in the glory of their first published colouring book* when inspiration (or desperation to remain cool and relevant) struck. A new colouring book full of all** their favourite comedians! 
This is that book. 
Try and colour within the lines. Or don't you're your own person and you can do what you want, that's cool too. 

*The Elis James and John Robins Colouring Experience. Google it. 
**Most. Well, some. A handful, perhaps. "

This zine features 30 of Lise and Jenny's favourite funny people to colour in, each one with their own individual activity. 
Ever wanted to design flyers, book the guests for QI, or write your own comedy songs? Then this is the book for you! 
Perfect for fans of comedy, colouring, and general whimsy.

 

A Zine About Machynlleth Comedy Festival 2017

"It's the last weekend of April, we've spent most of the day on the train, and now have three days of great shows to see at Machynlleth Comedy Festival. I have documented a handful of these, from what was probably the most joyful weekend of the year."

This is a 28-page zine about Mach fest (or the secret Welsh festival). I've chronicled some of the most memorable moments of the shows this year, including Pappy's Secret Dudes Society and Flatshare Slamdown, James Acaster at the Mach showcase, Austentatious, Sara Pascoe, and many more. 

Before putting the zines through to print, I need to have some idea of numbers, so by purchasing it through this listing you'll help me gauge the interest and speed along the process to get the first run of copies ready to ship off to you. As a thank you for purchasing this and being patient as it goes through the printing process, I will sign and number each copy of the initial print run.

The Elis James And John Robins Colouring Experience

"Resident Illustrators In Chief Jenny Grene and Lise Richardson have combined forces to create this Elis and John colouring book! Now you too can own a piece of the magic they have spread throughout the PCD family for years."

 

Improv Zine featuring Up The Antics

Created for a university assignment, this is an activity zine featuring Bristolian sketch and improv group Up The Antics. It was written with Peter Jones, who is a member of the group.

how to commission a poster from me

Are you an act who needs a poster to promote your Fringe show? You've come to the right place! Before you get in touch with me, I just need to run a few things by you. 

1. Think about what you want your design to look like. It's easier for me to get it right if you explain exactly what you want. I'm not running a design consultancy service (that'd cost you A LOT more!) so please send me your nice clear headshot taken by a photographer (NO SELFIES! They're a right pain to work with and if I'm illustrating it your head WILL look weird), tell me what colour scheme you want, and if you have any other ideas for the design tell me! If there's a poster you like that you want yours to look like too, show it to me! I can't spend days discussing what your poster could look like if you've not thought about it at all, so please make sure you've got a solid idea before you get in touch. Or if you have no clue, give me the details of your show and freedom to create what I think will be a suitable poster.

2. It's a show poster, so give me a list of things you need to have on it: show name, act name, dates (and days off if it's a full Fringe run!), show time, price or if it's a free show tell me who it's with (for example, PBH are quite specific about how their logo is displayed on your flyer), venue, and any quotes or accolades you need on the front. Give these to me straight away, it'll help me lay out the poster for you.

3. Are you doing a show with a group of people? Decide what you want BEFORE you email me. It'll take far more time to keep waiting for the sign off from every member of your group for every single step of the design, so if you're the point of contact, you make the decisions for the whole group. Not everybody's suggestions for the design need to be implemented, so you decide and I'll work from what you tell me. 

4. What you receive is a digital, print-ready file. You can then have it printed with your printer of choice (I highly recommend Mixam.co.uk, who I use frequently). Make sure you tell me the exact specifications your printer requires (most ask for a 3mm bleed, ask for a specific file format, or provide their own design template, so check this and let me know!)

5. Once we have discussed your poster, I will send you a commission agreement (it's a silent agreement, so you don't need to do anything! It's good to keep for your records, as it details exactly what you're paying for) and an invoice. I'll send you a preview of the work to approve (I'll allow for three minor changes or one major change at this stage), and if you're happy with it I'll finish it off and pop it in a google folder for you to download.

Photo poster

£50

A simple poster made using photographs you provide. (Nice headshots or other high quality shots - no selfies!) 

This can feature some very small illustrated elements, but the main focus will be your lovely face. 

If you don't have photos ready to go, I can recommend photographers depending on where you're based. 

If you need this to be a double sided flyer, that's fine! Just give me all the details for the back along with the front (that'll include a blurb and quotes at least!)

illustrated poster

£95

This is my specialty - illustrated posters are a great way of standing out from all the photo-based posters at the Fringe. 

Send me the photo you want the illustration to be based on. High quality photos taken by a photographer work best. If you've got a conceptual idea make sure you have photos taken in the pose you need, and if it's just your face you want on the poster then a clear headshot is what I need. 

If it's also being used as a flyer, I can illustrate both sides or just the front, depending on your idea. Make sure to consider other elements on the back too, like the blurb and any logos!

something different?

Perhaps you need something other than a Fringe poster design?

I can produce reoccurring gig posters, podcast images, t-shirt designs, book covers and illustrations.  Email me with the details and I will get back to you with a quote.
