Working Up A Brighter Tomorrow

Clockwork Watch is a multi-faceted beast and it requires some expert attention, which is why we’re working with Dom and the Firecat Masquerade team to plot out our shenanigans for Tomorrow’s World Today on May 6th.

We’re going to create a bustling Victorian street scene with all sorts of distractions. I’d suggest keeping the day free – it’s a child friendly event and runs from 2pm till 11am in Central London.

Location and ticket price will be announced in the next week.

First review of Clockwork Watch: “The Arrival” via Geek Syndicate


We’re happy to announce the first review of Clockwork Watch: The Arrival, by our friends at Geek Syndicate.

“Jennie’s art is classical in nature, elegant in execution and she shows a fabulous eye for colours and how to use them to add depth and emotion to every panel she draws. The other nice touch was the use of real locations including Crystal Palace and some small history lessons thrown in as well. I am new to the whole steampunk culture but really liked this story and I would recommend it to anyone looking to test the waters with the whole genre.”

It’s always humbling to read stuff like this, especially our first issue.

Thank you!!!

We would like You to tell a story… by Yomi Ayeni

Life is a story – one full of plots, sub-plots, twists and turns. It has many nuances, some lead the inquisitive minded on exciting adventures, others teach us not to be nosey, but you never know until you’ve taken that leap of faith whether you’re on course for a life changing experience.

Clockwork Watch is our most recent story  – although it’s been in script form for the past 3 years, the support of our patrons has given us the confidence to say this could be one of the most engaging stories ever told. Want to know why? First it’s a ‘Love Story’ – set in a mad retro-futurist world where anyone can re-invent themselves in  neo-Victorian chic. It’s a sandpit where you can experience a make believe universe, and interact with a story narrative.

This is why we have set Clockwork Watch at the very early stage of the ‘steampunk’ era, at a time when mechanical devices were the only source of power, and a ‘maker’ ethic led to some of the most amazing inventions of the industrial age. While we’re itching to see what contraptions and personas people conjure up for our live events, we’re also eager to ‘co-create’ what we’ll call ‘Clockwork World’.

Audiences involvement in Clockwork Watch was always destined to go beyond just receiving the perks listed on our IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign. People who’ve followed my work know participation is central to everything I create, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that  some of our funders have been sketched  into our first  graphic novel: “The Arrival”, and we’ve started inviting them to help  tell the story of their characters.

We are not restricting storytelling to words alone,  contributions can be in the form of tweets, photographs, drawings or even video clips. So we’re throwing the door open for you to become a storyteller. Transmedia is all about participation, and we believe that through co-creation we can tell OUR story together.
