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.

Contributions wanted for the London Zine Symposium book

March 24th, 2010 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Last Hours blog

We’re putting together a zinebook about the London Zine Symposium together for our fifth anniversary. We’re looking for stories about the symposium from our friends around the country. Write about a zine you made, workshop you went to, or just the people you hung out with. We’re looking for stories between 400 and 800 words. Or if you’d rather, you can contribute finished art, if you want to send illustrations or comics (2 or 4 pages of finished art). The final book is going to be A6, so make sure it’ll fit. Please send contributions to edd@rnzine.co.uk.

Year of the Monkey book

February 12th, 2010 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

So, I finally got this published! Year of the Monkey contains all 360 of the daily comics that I did over the course of a year between the summer of 2007 and 2008. It was a fairly insane project. I mean a comic everyday is nuts! But I stuck with it, and they were pretty [...]

There’s a two-colour [...]

Bad bike idea #263

December 4th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

The past week in London has had pretty horrific rain. Wednesday was no exception. Despite cycling for as long as I have I still don’t have any waterproofs and really couldn’t face getting completely drenched. This was my response to the problem; a pretty dumb response. Still, I survived, and didn’t get half as wet [...]
