Year of the Monkey book

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 good, if I do say so myself. It certainly does a good job of documenting my daily life during the period, and exploring my relationship with Natalie.

Below are some of the strips:
Busy bumblebee - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

Interruption sketch - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

Anarchist bookfair - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

La Dolce Vita - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

Website adventures - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

Cop logic - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

Snot funny - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

Greedy guts - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

Zine dreams - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

Too tired to think - Hey Monkey Riot, Year of the Monkey

The project ran for the full year as an online comic. The website no longer exists, so the only way to see the comics is through the book.

    Why do you and Nat have republican elephant bed sheets?

    Actually they’re badly drawn Indian elephants; it’s a totally non-vegan rug that I got given when we moved in. There’s a better rendition of it in my ‘G20, Ian Tomlinson + bad apples’ story… It keeps having cameo appearances in my comic because I like it even if it did cause a lot of silk-worms a bad ending!
