Hobby Crafting with Tick Tock IPA
Two years ago, we sent an unbound copy of Tick Tock IPA to the First Kendal Cubs, for their Hobby Craft Activity badge. I am pleased to say they were all inspired to create their own comics, and all got their badges!
The Cubs sent a delegation to meet us at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, and we were humbled by their present.
John Freeman Talks Clockwork Watch with Yomi and Corey
As an independent / self-published project, it can often be hard to get mentions in the press or on social, which is why appreciate any coverage we get! And guess what? We have a great story to share with you, so kindly listen to John Freeman’s interview with Yomi and Corey, for Down The Tubes. Recorded at the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival, in Kendal.
A great interview about Clockwork Watch by Down The Tubes, John Freeman.
Kendal Calling – LICAF 2017
Our annual trip to the Lake District was a rollercoaster, promising to be even bigger in 2018.
This was the 4th time the Clockwork Watch team were at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival (#LICAF), an event that boasts an amazing contingent of creators, makers, authors, and illustrators.
The organisers have been super supportive of our project, with the team making all the respective hurdles a breeze, and we can’t thank them enough. Huge props to Carole, Julie, Jonathan (all the way from Canada), Chris and all the volunteers that make the weekend a family affair.
We actually sold out of a Clockwork Watch title for the first time at a convention, making the Lakes 2017 a major milestone in the history of this project. It goes to show that promoting a Steampunk title in a town like Kendal works. People loved the story, in fact many came back after buying one of the books last year. It was great to hear their feedback, chat about plot points, and tease the future storyline.
LICAF covers all spectrums of the self-published comic sector more than any other convention that we’ve attended in the UK. It is an event for creators, makers, and grassroots comics, making it a must for anyone interested in comic book art or writing.
This year was a blast, as we forged closer links with some of the country’s top comic stores, artists, and a great contingent of creators from Australia, and Holland. One of the special treats was having time to chat, and plot 2018 with Stephen of Page 45, and the legendary Bryan and Mary Talbot, who signed copies of the final Grandville graphic novel at our table on Sunday.
We’d like to thank John Freeman and the ‘Down The Tubes’ blog for interviewing us, and express our gratitude to the town of Kendal. We love you and promise to be back.

“Here’s How It Started” by Corey
Seems like a “When harry Met Sally” situation, but having editor Corey Brotherson at the helm of Clockwork Watch has changed lives. Here is his annual round up of how we started the project.
