What a Pity (Working Title)
Self Published - Release date to be confirmed
An autobiographical comic about growing up under the historical shadow of Yorkshires Coal Mines, and the fallout their closure had on generations to come.
Unphased by the bitter year long miners strikes of 1984, Thatcher carried on her plan to destroy the mining industry in Britain, with no regards to the impact it would have on entire communities. In 1994, Grimethorpe Colliery is demolished, 50% of the village is left unemployed earning it the title of the most deprived area in the European Union. Up the road, Chloë is starting her first year in school; the fallout from the mine closure will continue to be seen throughout her school years and early life.
A Crying Shame

A comic about learning to have a cry, and it being okay.
A short autobiographical comic that explores Chloë's personal experience with the shame felt when outwardly showing emotions, and how pushing them down for so long is probably not a great solution... but how hard work and time (and therapy), she began to open up to all the good feelings too.
