Signed or customised copies of my graphic novel Biscuits (Assorted) which came out in 2020, and original promotional zine with many of the #3point52billion drawings and captions that started the3 whole project.

If you want the cookie cutter portrait, remember to send me the photo(s) you want me to base it on, and let me know the caption you want.

Signatures and portraits will be completed with black pigment liner.

Here's the spiel on the book:

Every day we pass a thousand people in the street or squash up against strangers in the underground. Like every city, London is teeming with life: diverse, beautiful, messy, incongruous life, and every face seen fleetingly in the crowd carries a story or two. Some are sad, some are funny, some are boring, but none are ever quite what you would guess.

In Biscuits (assorted), Jenny Robins takes a look at a handful of women’s stories in the city as they defy and comply with our expectations, and as they step out of the cookie cutter mould of what it means to be a woman today. What can a relentlessly positive supermarket employee, a strong-minded mother with a secret, a mistress of distraction (and oversharing) and a miss-adventurer in bi-sexual dating do in one long, hot summer? What can they learn from each other and from the colourful cast of women (and the occasional man) in this book of interweaving stories?

An extract from Biscuits (assorted) won the Myriad First Graphic Novel Competition 2018.


Here's some review quotes from impressive people

"Sanguine and moving… Jenny Robins’s characters stumble and shine in her deft volume of linked stories. A deeply satisfying read."

Shelly Bond

"Jenny Robins is an exciting new comics creator. Biscuits is intricate and engaging, a London story of women going about their complicated lives, getting sweetly entangled with each other, listening, loving, and weathering the ups and downs of London life. This is a very auspicious debut."

Audrey Niffenegger

"Jenny Robins’s BISCUITS (ASSORTED) is a delicious, grin-inducing joy – as well as one of the most effortlessly accessible and all-inclusive celebrations of friendships that I’ve ever been blessed to stumble across. It has leapfrogged, legs akimbo, over hundreds upon hundreds of other comics to find itself quite startlingly in my Top Twenty Favourite Graphic Novels Of All Time."

Stephen Holland, Page 45 Comic Of The Month

"In Biscuits Jenny Robins has brought women's lived experiences to life in an incredibly vibrant, beautiful book. [An] exquisitely crafted graphic novel."

Ruth Wainwright, The Feminist Bookshop

This zine is so good. It's big and thick, but in no way does it feel long. Each page makes you want to see the next. The art is beautiful, and the message is just as beautiful.
