Laydeez do Comics – Dublin

Talking comics in Dublin

Sarah McIntyre

Sarah McintyreIllustrator and writer Sarah McIntyre makes picture books and comics with three other artists in an old police station – complete with jail cells! – in Deptford, south London. Her comic Vern and Lettuce appeared weekly in The Guardian and in the DFC; in September 2010, David Fickling launched it as a book as part of the DFC Library.

Her picture book with Giles Andreae, Morris the Mankiest Monster, introduced the world to a loveable monster with stomach-turning personal habits. Morris sold out in its first month and has won both the Sheffield and Bishop’s Stortford Children’s Book Awards, as voted by children.

She launched two more picture books in 2010: You Can’t Eat a Princess with Scholastic and When Titus Took the Train with Oxford University Press. You Can’t Scare a Princess!launches in September this year. She has several more contracts with David Fickling and Scholastic for books that she’s written herself, and one that’s she’s writing with her friend David O’Connell.

Vern and lettuceSarah updates her blog on LiveJournal nearly every day with drawings and event photos, and you can follower her on Twitter here.

Find out about her studio, The Fleece Station, a hotbed of sheep comics and knitted strangeness. She shares it with Beano comics wizard Gary Northfield, her art college classmate who re-introduced her to comics, Ellen Lindner, and fine artist and head of Stitch London, Lauren O‘Farrell. (The original three founders – Sarah, Gary and Viviane Schwarz – met while coincidentally making comics starring sheep.)
