Rehab Exit Interview: Miss Helen


1. Briefly describe your experience at comic artist rehab:

I drew comics every 4 days. I whinged a lot but I really enjoyed it. It’s good to have an incentive to create things and though I think I could have done a better job, had my health not been so problematic, I’m glad that I stuck it out! I really loved the support and comments. It’s so nice to get a bit of love. Self publishing can be so isolating!

2. What, if anything, did you learn from the program?

Soldier on! That it’s ok to do a bad drawing, you can often save it or just re-draw it! It’s good to plan things, but sometimes spontaneity is better! I’m def going to keep a list of ideas on hand constantly.

3. Which one of your own comics are you most pleased with and why?

Day Nine. I’m so obsessed with the inside of flowerpot girl’s house.

4. Which one of your own comics are you least pleased with and why?

Chicken. It’s just so messy.

5. Do you hope to keep up drawing comics after rehab? If so, how often.

But of course, in some form or other. I’ve got a new zine out which hasn’t been launched yet and it’s more freestyle pictures with words than comics. But this has encouraged me to explore narratives.

6. Any suggestions for future rounds?

More Amber with a big stick!
