I will be at this weeks Comiket – details here. I will be sharing a table with Sally and Francesca. The event has moved to a new venue, I hope there is lots of space and punters. As of today there is no listing of exhibitors ( I may be looking in the wrong place ). I find it really poor when events promote themselves, the guests, but forget exhibitors. The people who actually pony up the cash. I hope this is not a return to a few years ago. ( Rising table costs, minimal publicity ). Getting people interested in reading comics is important, but so is selling. So come along and spend freely, there will be lots of amazing comics for sale. On my table will be Twelve Hour Shift, Dark Matter, Necessary Monsters 2, ( parts 1 + 2 ) Same Day Return, and Trees.
So drop by and say hello. It’s really welcome to speak to people in the flesh.
A continuation of the sketches made during Angouleme. I have been using landscape to work out composition, there is a lot of leaning towards abstraction. This will then ( Hopefully ) improve my comics layout and design.
If you have time please have a look at two friends work, as they had some bad luck on the journey back from Angouleme. Francesca lost a very important sketchbook, and Oliver lost his wallet.NOt news you like to hear. Fingers crossed for it all working out.
Chris and Taylor have reviewed Same Day Return on the recent Pop culture hound podcast. You can read more about the comic here. It seems to have produced a really positive response from people. Thanks for reading.
Richard Bruton has blogged about Necessary Monster 2. It is a good starting point for the curious or refresher for people who have forgotten what it’s all about.
Go and read and support the FP blog, a place that has been a consistent supporter of the comics scene in the UK.
They have been a massive help to me. So once again, thank you
