Recently, while unpacking all the boxes that have been in storage for a while, I found this little gem…

This A5 copy of Circular Field holds a very special place in my heart, not only because it marks my first meeting with Philip Bond and Alan Martin, but because I just love the comic… to me, it’s one of the most perfect things that I have the pleasure of owning.

But the reason I’m posting it, is because as you can see on this page, there’s a washing machine… That washing machine wasn’t in the original comic… I requested Phil draw it for me… because his first Wired World strip in Deadline magazine featured, what I thought were, some very nicely drawn washing machines. Anyway, it feels like we’ve come full circle in some strange ‘Circular Field’ kind of way, because washing machines play a very important part in The Nao of Brown.

It’s a pretty well worn copy and as you can see they both scrawled some stuff on it as well as the nice drawing… but I imagine it’s a pretty rare thing. I googled it and couldn’t find any reference to it anywhere…

Anyway here it is in full… I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Writing update: Doing nights is proving fruitful, I’m up to page 83 and well over the halfway point of the first draft, still well on course to meet the schedule I’ve set for myself. Makes for pretty boring blog posts though… sorry.
