Everyday life seen through a lens of thought provoking absurdism.
Chalk Marks is Blank Slate’s new imprint, allowing a large format space for new UK comic artists to produce their first commercial works (think something like Fantagraphics' fine Ignatz range). In this first issue Joe Decie gives us his beautifully ink washed stories of the apparantly everyday, with a twist in the tail. Ever wonder what the portent of that eyeless Bart Simpson doll at the boot slate was?, or how demons can possess your pictures during scanning? Joe reveals all. Joe Decie’s work has long been featured on Top Shelf 2.0 and has been praised around the UK Indy comics scene.
"Do you know about Joe Decie? I do! His ‘What I Drew’ webcomic is G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S., all ink washes and chunky nib lines. I love it, and the way he shows little portions of his life is really tasteful, true to life without ever being dull," Dustin Harbin author of Dharbin! webcomic
