So pleased to announce that the legendary British Comic Awards nominee, Rachael Smith, creator of The Rabbit and Wired Up Wrong, is returning to us once again!

How long have you been in the Comic’s industry? – My first mini comic came out in 2012. It was called ‘The Way We Write’ and was about a band who go on a writers retreat and end up staying in a haunted house. It was a lot of fun!

What is your latest release/project? – I’m working on my graphic novel ‘Isabella and Blodwen’ about a girl who gets cursed by a witch. It’s currently funding over at Unbound.com. I’m also working on a few other things that I’m not allowed to talk about yet – sorry!

What have you been up to since we last saw you a couple of years ago? – Writing, drawing, drinking wine, playing video games, hanging out with my cat, same old same old!

What is your top tip for those wanting to work in the industry? – Start small. Start now. Don’t wait for a publisher to pick you up, they’ll only notice you when you start making work by yourself.

Any other information you would like to include about you? You can find everything over at rachaelsmith.org!

What is your all time favourite comic? The Love Bunglers

If you could work on anything what would it be? – Squirrel Girl or Lumberjanes!

What did you want to do for a job when you were growing up? – The first job I remember wanting was to drive a train, but my Mum says when I was really little I apparently wanted to be an apple!

Where do you find is the best place to work on Comics? – All my drawing I do in my studio (which is really just a box room in my house!) on my drawing board. I try not to be too precious about where I write as I find it’s helpful to write in different locations, my studio, my kitchen, the local pub, hotel rooms, etc.

Make sure you book your tickets and go grab as many books from Rachael as possible!!
