Number 2 in the series of 'outside' comics from my 'Not Everyone Rises' project.
This is positioned at the end of Rye Harbour on a WW2 'pill box' defense, with Dungeness in the background. The story depicted is that of a US serviceman who perished when his bomber crashed just off the coast. The story uses his words from his last letter home.
The comic it's self is printed onto toughened ceramic tiles.

Have no been at my desk for a while. But now the days are shortening I always feel more inclined to sit and work. Less distractions and more conducive to knuckling down. Perhaps it's for the best I don't live in a warm part of the world.
It's not the most 'arty' of studios but I model it on my favorite author, the wonderful J G Ballard who worked facing a wall in a sparse room.

This will be the location of another of my 5 site specific permanent comic strips. It was here Britian suffered its worst life boat disaster when 21 local men perished in the English Channel going to the aid of a stricken ship in 1928.
It sits isolated between Winchelsea Beach and Rye Harbour.

They are site specific 2 page comics printed onto ceramic tiles. Each 2 page comic is a graphic representation of a historical event that took place there. Ranging from the last letter from a downed bomber pilot to the Mary Stanford life boat disaster, the worst in British history.
This one is situated on the Fire Hills overlooking Rye Bay/English Channel and is a study of the turmoil that stretch of coastline experienced during World War 2 as told to a young boy by his grandfather.
There a 4 other locations along the little bit of coast that I live. I will post the pics one by one. I took the photo's this morning and was happy to see people reading it as I wandered up.

As a cricket obsessive and The Ashes having started: A page from 'Tim Ginger' (Topshelf 2014) Which has a main character who likes his cricket. A coincidence? Pah!
