The Bloodwise Ambassadors are celebrating the launch of the #MakeBloodCancerVisible campaign as part of the blood cancer community’s ongoing efforts to raise awareness of blood cancer.
The exhibition is in Paternoster Square by St. Paul’s and is going on throughout September for Blood Cancer Awareness Month. If you get a chance do go and visit and encourage friends and family to do the same.
You may have noticed, the PerryWinkle comic website looks very different today.
This is an attempt to make the site more mobile friendly and easier to navigate.
So you should now be able to read PerryWinklecomic.com, with ease on your morning commutes 🙂
As i am off to do now.
Have a great day all
All the best
Good Evening All

The prints are back and ready to go. Our amazing Kickstarter backers should be receiving their copies in the post any day now !!

Speaking of Comic Cons, we have attended a few recently. Cardiff by the awesome Iz McAuliffe, True Believers Summer Variant with Stuart Mulrain and London Super Comic Con, with an awesome meal out with a ton of awesome indie creators. These have been so fun and so nice to catch up with everyone 🙂

Today, we also received a beautiful review from Toni via “Never Iron Anything”, we are deeply honoured to receive such a review and cannot thank Toni enough for such kind words.
September is Blood Cancer awareness month, keep checking in at Perry Winkle for upcoming info 🙂

Good Morning All
Hope everyone is enjoying the sunny bank holiday weekend.
Today is World Blood Cancer day, be part of it and make your make against blood cancer. (Link below)
You may have noticed is rather quiet at Perry Winkle HQ – we have been working very hard behind the scenes on pages. We have changed our format slightly and are finishing up all the lines and will go back and do all the colours. Exciting news, the comic roughs are finished in its entirety, we are almost there with the neats and will be giving you sneak peeks of the colour.
We are over the halfway mark.. exciting times.
This week is M.E awareness week.
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that causes symptoms affecting many body systems, more commonly the nervous and immune systems. M.E. affects an estimated 250,000 people in the UK, and around 17 million people worldwide.
People with M.E. experience severe, persistent fatigue associated with post-exertional malaise, the body’s inability to recover after expending even small amounts of energy, leading to a flare-up in symptoms.
Below are some links provided by my good friend Jess Sylvie, who suffers from ME.
Jess is an incredible lady, who raises a lot of awareness and fundraising for ME, while battling this horrible illness herself. Jess surprised me with a very special gift this week and i am truly honoured.
Jess hand crafted this incredible Perry Winkle bag, the knitting, stitching, everything is gorgeous. The time and dedication gone into this from Jess is outstanding. Thank you so much Jess, means the world to me.
Over the last few days, we have done a lot of background on the Perry Winkle Comic website, to make it faster and more effective.
Perry Winkle is extremely image heavy and i understand it ran rather slowly for some users. This should now have improved. If you are still having problems, please do let me know, as we are now using a service.
On this note, to help cover the additional costs for the website, i have created a Patreon, if you would be interested in signing up, for as little as $1 (77p), where you can get access to sketches, works in progress etc, earlier then anyone else. Plus a chance to win a monthly original sketch.
Please do check it out and support us. – Susie Gander Patreon
Happy Sunday Folks
Hope you are all enjoying the Bank Holiday Break.
We have a bundle of goodies for you at Perry Winkle HQ today, provided by the talented folks below :-

My husband and I sat down, to a creative weekend. This was a first for us, i never customised anything before, but was a great laugh.
More Perry Winkle pages are being worked on and sent for lettering by the super awesome Rob Jones….. sneaky peek ..shhh !!!
We are celebrating today at Perry Winkle HQ.
Today i had my very last cancer check up. 🙂
Walking into the clinic today, hugging my oncologist so tight, i’m sure he couldn’t breath !! We knew today was the day, but to hear him say it, filled us with joy. 🙂
My fears were soon squashed, when Dr P explained i have a direct phone number to the department, should i have any future concerns. So i won’t have to start from scratch again, all my notes will remain on file.
Clinically i am fine and we can now focus on the fertility side of things.
It has been a very tough 3 years, with sad times and happy times, but personally feel I have grown as an individual and it makes you realise what really is important in life.
Can I take this moment to say thank you to Chris Gander, my family and each and every single one of you for the continued support throughout this journey and supporting Perry Winkle.
I couldn’t have done it without each and every single one of you , you are all heroes xxxxx
Well guys …. we finally pinned down an official release date for the Print Edition.
Kickstarter backers will also be sent their rewards two weeks PRIOR to the date below.
Thank you so much to each and every single person who has supported us, this has been an incredible journey. A huge thank you again to Robin Jones for providing the lettering, amazing stuff.
We have met lots of incredible people, from the comic book world and such inspiring survivors.
I have loved every second of this project and Perry Winkle is very much a part of my life now. You all made that possible.
I have one more favour to ask, i am currently looking into the number of copies to order. If you would like to register your interest in ordering a copy of Perry Winkle, it will help give me an idea of numbers.
