Queen Josephine Ouch House 200

A Queen will always rise again after a fall. No matter how Ouchy that fall maybe. Boxing Day 2013 and Brighton DJ and RadioReverb presenter Queen Josephine is involved in an accident. She ends up hospital with a fractured skull, broken elbow and her writing arm shattered in eight places. Little was going to raise her spirits as she lay recovering in the Royal Sussex County Hospital. Except perhaps pen and paper.

Queen Josephine resurrected her love of cartooning and began chronicling her long recovery from surgery with the cartoon strip Ouch House Diaries. Left handed scribbles became right-handed drawn delights as she used honesty and humour to deal with the trails, tribulations and occasional humiliations of her sick-bed.

To celebrate 356 days of pen and ink Queen Josephine has created Ouch House 200, an A2 cartoon featuring everyone who made it into the Ouch House Diaries.

The Ouch House 200 will be part of the Duke Of Norfolk’s Brighton Pride fundraising Community Art Show Auction alongside artists Sami Wood and Sam John with all proceeds donated to Brighton Pride and The Rainbow Fund for their continuing support of local LGBT/HIV charities and organisations as well as The Friends of Brighton & Hove Hospitals in recognition of the amazing support and care she received from staff whilst at The Royal Sussex Hospital.

Sealed bids welcome – email:

Limited Edition Ouch House 200 prints also available. A2 £40 / A3 £20.

20% of all proceeds donated to Brighton & Hove Pride and Friends of Brighton & Hove Hospitals.

Supported by ArtsWerk and Drink in Brighton.
