Yes No Maybe by Avril Smart
Something a little different today, we have a performance comic by Avril Smart.
I am a Yes supporter. I drew this comic for a performance, purely to vent my frustrations about the referendum. Westminster politicians trying to be our best friend but threatening to be our worst enemy, the lies on the front page and the retractions on page 7, the torrents of ‘better together’ propaganda by supposedly impartial media sources, ‘project fear’, and the idea that all Yes supporters must be both stupid and anti-English.
Wondering what on earth a ‘performance comic’ is? Pioneered in Scotland by Dundee University’s Damon Herd, comics performances seem to have really taken off in the Scottish comics scene. You can find out more about them at comicsperformance.tumblr.com
Also, you can see more of Avril’s work on her online porfolio.
TGC’s Avril Smart and Gill Hatcher have both contributed to the Comic Soapbox Scotland project. They are open for submissions from all sides of the debate, so get writing and drawing!
