Good morning, everyone
Long time no update, but we’re back with some exciting news!
A couple of weeks ago, The Peckham Invalids team had a visit from Auntie Beeb’s flagship Deaf culture program, See Hear. Turns out they quite fancied running a feature on us! You can see the results of the interview on BBC2 at 1pm, Wednesday 7th March 2012. If you can’t tune in for that it will also be available on iPlayer for about a week afterwards. For the extra curious, there’s a preview of the interview here on the See Hear website.
The piece mostly follows Howard around whilst he talks about Peckham Invalids, sign language and comics in general, but there are also appearances from Julia and Sarah (one of whom had lost her voice whilst the other really hates being on camera … bonus points to anyone who can work out which one is which) who talk you through the process behind creating some of the artwork for the comic, and show how the portrait of Emily featured below was created. All very interesting stuff I am sure you’ll agree.
Rest assured,all this media attention has not gone to our heads. We are busy working on issue two of The Peckham Invalids, and more details about that will be released soon enough. Can’t wait to talk to you all about it.
