BA (Hons) Visual Communication (Illustration) graduate Sarah Graley is going from strength to strength in her illustration career.
Things really started to take off for her late last year when she ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund a hardcover book collecting 200 strips from my diary comic Our Super Adventure. It received over 400% funding and ended at £21,601!
Soon after she was recruited on to literary agent’s Curtis Brown LTDs books and she’s now working on a graphic novel that she’ll soon be pitching to American publishers!
We caught up with her and she told us: “I was also nominated for the Emerging talent category for the British Comic Awards 2015 for my self-published titles, RentQuest, PizzaWitch and Our Super Adventure. I didn't win, but I got a sweet mug and it's an honor to have made the short list.
“Yesterday 'Lil' Poopy Superstar' was announced, which is a spin off comic from Cartoon Network/Adult Swim's property Rick and Morty. I am both the writer and artist, and the comic is getting published through Oni Press!
“In between everything I've been tabling at a lot of comic conventions. My first convention this year is at Glasgow Comic Con, where I'll be guesting as one of the six break-out talent guests.”
