Farinella Sealand

This is a page from my latest comic, you can read it in full on my new website. Yes, I have a new website! Also the blog has a new design, did you notice? This is all part of my new year resolution of becoming a professional cartoonist. Sadly the truth is that I am still working full-time as a research scientist. But starting from next month I already have some interesting commissions and many other projects lined up. So watch this space, this time I mean it.

Little Albert Experiment

Thanks to everyone who came to play with Neurocomic at the first Imperial Fringe night! (it was really fun to draw zombie comics with you kids)

In case you couldn’t make it, here is the science-horror comic we were giving away.

We still have a few copies left so if you want some for your Halloween party let me know.

PS: someone the other night was asking me what happened to Watson and Little Albert after the experiment. Well, here is a more complete (and possibly even more terrifying!) version of the story.

The Water Cycle

It is again that time of the year when I have to draw something for my favourite Italian fanzine. The topic of the next issue is cycle and once again it inspired me a sad love story (with a scientific twist). It also gave me an opportunity to experiment a little bit with what I call hypercomics. Although, since last Wednesday Randall Munroe published click and drag this word assumed a whole new meaning. If you haven’t seen it yet I strongly recommend you to take a few minutes to explore this comic masterpiece. But first of all, enjoy The Water Cycle:

You Made Me Forget My Dreams

The new issue of the Vegetable Lamb is out, with a nice cover and plenty of other good stuff behind it. Including this one page comic based on a sad song from Belle & Sebastian:

You made me forget my dreams
When I woke up to you sleeping
We had peace for a night at least
But the trouble starts today
This morning you’ll say 

“I’ll see you sometime, maybe” 
And I fall back to uneasy sleep

You made me forget my dreams
I was building a space rocket
With the boy who played bass guitar
With the boy who’s wearing flares
He didn’t care
He lit the fuse and ran for a mile
The space rocket went up in style

I’ll lend you two hundred quid
For a flight across the ocean
Maybe things will look better there
Because they couldn’t seem much worse
Than tears and a curse
For men with guns, maturing in age
Will always pay a shitty wage
They’ll always pay a shitty wage

You made me forget my dreams
When I woke up to you sleeping
There was blood on the sheets again
And the view outside the window
Of gardens in bloom
Obscured by all the trouble we had
I think I better make a move
I think I better make a move
