#YesterdaysWord

Since the beginning of 2015 I have embarked on a daily project #YesterdaysWord; for several years I've had a page-a-day calendar giving me a new word each day, so I figured it could be interesting to illustrate those ...Blop and Muffnut have even made cameos in some! I post daily to Instagram and the whole lot is easy to view over on Flickr.

What are your favourites so far?

Milestones

As I approach my interview for the Sequential & Narrative Illustration MA at Brighton, I've been reflecting on my career thus far; with the publication of my latest book The Cruffin and Muffnut, I have so far published four books and alongside my small press and limited edition books my total number of publications is eleven! That seems kinda cool to me.

Numbers seem to be everything these days: fans, friends, followers -not to mention money- so it's hard not to get caught up in statistics. But I also realised I'm closing in on some nice milestones:

My Alex Hahn Illustrator Facebook page is nearing 200 likes

My Etsy store is only few sales away from the big 100

Post Conatus, my diary comic is closing in on 200 posts (so already over 200 pages worth of comics online for people to view completely free!)

I wanted to take stock of these and look forward to pushing forward over the next year and make these numbers look like peanuts...thanks to everyone who has contributed to these and enjoyed my work. Please help, if you like, by sharing links to these websites and letting people know about my work :)

Hourly Comics Day 2014


This year was the first time I took part in Hourly Comics Day -not that I remembered when it was! Even though I was a little late to start I had fun trying to cover the whole day in a single panel each, which is quite different to any of the autobio comics I've made recently, though still fitting in with the rest of my Post Conatus episodes.

4000 Miles poster

The latest play I designed the poster for opened last night to brilliant reviews; Amy Herzog's 4000 Miles is on at the Corpus Playroom, Cambridge, until this Saturday. This oater was a lot of fun to work on, trying to blend soviet era design with modern design and the Western setting of the play. I was interviewed about my role in the publicity design last week and I felt like sharing some of my working process with everyone; below are some of the steps from rough designs to finished poster.
More about the play can be read at Wikipedia,
And if you want to go see the play, follow this link (before 25.1.14)

Another plug for non electrical items...


If you haven't yet adorned your walls or person with a healthy dose of Blop (or other images of mine)  now's the perfect time. I have even more images available to buy through Society 6; from prints to shirts, hoodies, pillows, laptop skins and tote bags. 

Society 6 recently launched some new product lines, including mugs and children's apparel. Users will have noticed how when they launch new lines, they get added automatically for sale based on what product types you have images for and you have to manually turn off colours that don't work with your designs. unfortunately you can't turn off a product in certain 'families' so when kids apparel and onesies became available, that meant that all of my designs available on t-shirts can also be bought as onesies. The below image illustrates a slight concern with this, as my 'check me out' image looks humourous on an adult, I'm not sure how happy I'd be seeing it on a baby, but then again maybe you want your little man sporting my little man: for now the option is there for you ;-)
