downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hop over to www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Going Dutch for Comics

Sandra de Haan, a comic artist from Rotterdam just found downthetubes and writes to let us know that given that the Netherlands is a small country, she's started translating her comics into English to try and reach more comic fans.

There's a collection of about 30 stories on her new blog here. (Click 'lees veder', 'read more' to read the stories).

Sandra, who also teaches comics in schools (there's inevitably a strip about her experiences!) trained at the Willem de Kooning Academy: her credits include work for magazines such as
Viva, Psychology Magazine and others. She also includes book publishers among her clients, providing both carton and illustration work for a variety of clients.

The translated strips are fun, including this wonderful observation on the life of a freelancer, and a commentary on the state of the BBC.

Sandra kindly sent us one of her strips which you can enjoy below...
