tiny tea comics - the dream, finally realised

It's been a really busy week so far. I've managed to roast a cauliflower Collapse ), phone a sister (and not the usual one!), mess up in band practice (that's the other half of artswap, in case anyone hadn't guessed), rescue a maiden in distress (geroge), finally replace my headphones and spend a fun commute-walk swiping seeds from other people's gardens. The ninja gardener lives!

I also, finally did the first (possibly also the last) of my tiny tea comics. You can see them in their full glory over on Flickr -- although the pictures below are a fair summary. That's a print run of ten sachets, just like it says on the box:

no! it's tiny tea comics! inside the tea-bag sleeve tiny tea comic

I'm not sure what I should sell them for -- rather more work's gone into them than my comics usually get, because of modifying the individual wrappings (which are from Teadirect Green Tea with cinnamon, btw). Just lining up the pages at that size is a bloody nightmare, although (on the bright side) they are very easy to staple. Anyway, it seemed a little teasish not to, so I've done an online version of the comic too:

a nice cup of tea - detail

Enjoy! With a nice cup of tea.

P.S. For anyone seething over that Forbes article, here's a brilliant satire: Nine Reasons You Should Marry a Career Bitch. Apparently there's a term for this now: blog-flogging. As in, "I'm sorry, I can't talk right now I'm right in the middle of giving [insert the name of your mosted journo here] a thorough blog-flogging."
