It’s been quiet at Team Tiny Pencil recently, but that’s because we’ve been hard at work on an exciting new project we’ve just been itching to share with you!
Remember those sweet summer days of youth and yore when books still had pencil-worn pages, and were an invitation to share your most intimate marks?
Do you still sometimes wish for just a few dots to connect, a shape to colour in, or a maze to master and feel almighty again? Or perhaps you just find yourself wanting to stick it to your kindle with a pencil every now and then. Well friends, thy inner child has spoken and we have listened.
SO…following the resounding success of Tiny Pencil Issue 1, and in anticipation of ELCAF just a few days away, we’re super psyched to finally announce….
Tiny Pencil 2.0! Rise of the Summerzine! Mammals, Monsters, Mars!
3 individually themed, all-ages, all-access activity artzines filled with comics, puzzles, and games! All packaged together in one seriously souped up mega-matchbox gloriously illustrated by Kristyna Baczynski!
We are thrilled to be bringing you this special summer edition – with over 72 pages of pencil colour ART by 25+ stellar all-ages comics and carbon cohorts including Viviane Schwarz, Gary Northfield, Sarah McIntyre, Katie Green, Lizz Lunney, John D. Kilburn, Kate Hindley, Sophie Alda, Tom Hubmann and many, many more.
Printed in an extremely limited boxed edition, this special summerzine set also comes with a 4-colour mini-set of pencils by legendary English pencil maker Derwent Pencils! Here’s another sneak peek of some of the magnificent graphite gamery to come:
But wait, there’s more… Each set also comes with a mini-strip of stickers, other surprise goodies, and hold your horses…dice! That’s right. DICE.
So that’s dice. Plus the pencil mini-pack. Plus 3 x fully-themed, fully-filled activity-packed artzines. Plus 1 x hand-numbered, limited edition specially pencil-illustrated box. Plus stickers and who knows what else? All for only £12.95. (Excluding Shipping! But trust us, it’s still worth it.)
So, get your game on guys! Cos it’s summertime! It’s Mammals, Monsters & Mars! And cos there’s no better time than now to relive the days of your youth and start pushin’ your pencil around again!
