sneak peek the next : Karrie's wolf

Karrie Fransman is a fantastically busy artist, and her peregrinations around the comics scenes of the world made her a perfect travelling companion for The Strumpet: Going places. I first met  Karrie's comics in The Guardian, but she has done much, much more than that, including  her remarkable graphic novel, The House That Groaned, is published by Random House's Square Peg and was chosen as Graphic Novel of the Month in The Observer. One of the very exciting things to me about Karrie's work is how varied it is, including cakes, models and even comics sculpture!

There's still time to pre-order your strumpet on kickstarter : go on! Karrie wants you to :)

More  about Karrie; she has talked about her work at Saint Martins, London College of Communication, The University of Birkbeck, the Institute of Contemporary Arts and for The British Council and exhibited her work in London, Belgium and Moscow. Karrie was born in Edinburgh and lives in London in a house not so dissimilar to the one in her book, The House that Groaned.
