Toxic Nursery Now Available in Paperback

Book: Nailed by Carlie-Martece

I hardly seem to find the time for DA these days, which is a shame, because there's some really inspiring work on here, and I've met some lovely people. I'm constantly busy with trading events now that my book is out in paperback and I'm selling it all over the place. It's had some fantastic feedback so far. If you like hilariously brutal, dark comedies, then this could be the book for you. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to buy a signed copy direct from the author.


My Latest Upload: Catemine

Catemine by Carlie-Martece

Another thing that's keeping me busy is my new drawing series, The NookaBet. This little chap is brought to us by the letter C, and is drawn almost entirely in biro (ballpoint pen). I'm going to do an abstract or surreal drawing for each letter of the alphabet, and each will have an accompanying poem or comedy rant. I aim to have the whole series finished and published by this time next year. Please add me on facebook to watch the series progress.

The Story Behind My Work: Toxic Nursery

“Nothing says failed lesbianism quite like an accidental pregnancy.”

Toxic Nursery is a deranged, roller coaster journey written with beautiful brutality and stunning originality. Using semi-autobiographical storytelling, it explores the different facets of a fractured personality – from irritating cheerfulness to cold cynicism, from meek terror to unhinged exhibitionism, and from academic introversion to vitriolic fury. It scathingly mocks the “misery memoir” genre by turning dark subjects into even darker comedy. This intensely psychological, vicious parody hurtles at breakneck speed through a series of bleakly hilarious misadventures. Lyrical and sardonic, it reads like a cross between a poem, a joke, an artists' manifesto, and a mental health case study, but with constant emphasis on the writer's twisted sense of humour. Martece unflinchingly spotlights the myriad of truths that shape the human character in this demented account of a creative life that involves “courage”, art, madness, badgers, alien princesses, Gothic melodrama, nudity and petrol.
