Profile - I started Rancid News in 2001 as a website before it morphed into a print zine, then changed its name to Last Hours. Now in 2011 I design and illustrate for NGOs, non-profits and anyone who wants to change the world at www.eddbaldry.co.uk. I still draw comics sometimes as Hey Monkey Riot.

The Wall: an allegory

August 24th, 2010 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

I’ve been working on this off and on for a coupla months now, and just got it finished in time to print the first 32 pages for tour in the USA. It’s a silent comic re-imagining the Wind in the Willows from a bucolic idyll to a dystopia full of walls, checkpoints, bulldozers and trigger [...]

Ian Tomlinson afterword

August 9th, 2010 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

I’m going on tour in the States during August/ September (www.zinesontoast.org), and am going to print up some copies of the ‘The G20, bad apples and Ian Tomlinson’ story as a stand alone zine (it first appeared in Excessive Force) because sending out Excessive Force was gonna be too expensive.
Anyhow, I decided to write an [...]

Birthday presents

July 17th, 2010 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

Still busy with getting comics ready for the Zines on Toast tour (which hopefully I’ll post up here soon). In the meantime it was the birthday for both my Dad and sister last weekend. I made this for my sister:

It’s making fun of her new house, and DIY plans.
Then for my dad:

A travel ticket for [...]

Est-ce que tu peux parler un peu de français?

June 15th, 2010 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

So it’s a week until my French exam. Hence the lack of new updates with real illustration work. At the moment any spare moment is being pored into these sodding cards. I have hundreds of the things now with random bits of vocabulary I think I should know. Here’s some of the ones I made [...]

London anarchist bookfair poster 2010

May 16th, 2010 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

I got to create the poster (and flier) for the London anarchist bookfair again this year. I decided to do something totally over complicated for the poster. I think there’s 50 different characters in the image.

Tales from the London Zine Symposium

April 28th, 2010 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

It’s five years since the London Zine Symposium was started so it seemed like a good time to release a book about the symposium (The London Zine Symposium: tales from the first 5 years). Last Hours will be launching it at the London date of the UK leg of the Zines on Toast tour on [...]

The rejected ballot boxes

April 28th, 2010 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

It’s two weeks since Last Hours published the ballot boxes poster. I’m not going to bore you with the pencil sketches of all the different ideas I came up with to try and communicate the image, but here are the two that got away (one with good reason, the other’s an idea I want to [...]
