In the run up to the Catford Comic and Zine fair we’re asking participants a series mildly interesting questions. First up is the ever brilliant artist and cat observer Hannah Lee Miller. (No relation)
CCZF: Hi Hannah, apart from answering this email what are you doing right now?
HLM: Apart from this I am recovering from going to my companies storage and searching archives, dusty and achy.
CCZF: Blimey! How long have you been doing comics and art and stuff?
HLM: I have been drawing since I was a kid and watching my Dad over his shoulder. I made my first comic strips around 19.
CCZF: In order of preference, what are your three favourite soups? We are compiling a chart.
HLM: As a matter of point I feel it should be said that Soup is not a food, it is a savoury drink much like tea but in a bowl, needless to say… 1. Tomato. 2. Butternut Squash 3. Sausage stew.
What are you reading and listening to at the moment?
HLM: Listening: Tribe Called Quest- ‘We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service‘, the fault of Matt Boyce playing it at the Gypsy Hill Comic fair.
Reading: Phillip Pullmans- ‘The Amber Spyglass’ and also Tillie Walden’s ‘Spinning‘ though to be fair, I am forever reading 10 books at the same time and never finishing any (except comics, I always read and finish all the comics all the time)
CCZF: How is your cat Treacle doing?
HLM: My black cat Treacle is gorgeous equally as gorgeous as his sister who has taken to sleeping in the crock of my armpit in a little ball of adorable fur.
If you mean comic book I think Short Box are awesome. You pay a fee and they send you a bunch of really good self published comics and a print, check them out!
I loved Battle of the Planets. Great too theme tune too. The baddie in the purple pointy hood really gave me the willies though. Zoltar. I had a dream he burnt our house down.
