Sally – Anne will be exhibiting at CECAF. Sally – Anne came up with the CECAF name, so will always be a legend.
It’s the last two events of the year for me, Leeds Thought Bubble and Malta Comic Con. A great way to end what has been a very busy con season.
At Leeds I will be in the New Dock Hall sharing a table ( 77 ) with the ever wonderful Howard Hardiman.
For both events I will be selling the usual comics, plus a couple of new works. Necessary Monsters – Murderbox, parts 2, 3, 4 also Trees and Heads. I will also have a bunch of screen prints made earlier this year.
Sadly I didn’t get it together to finish, Rain On Glass. This will now be ready for Angouleme 2014, which the Dessinators ( Sally Anne, Francesca and Oliver ) will be attending .
Francesca did an amazing job organising the application, and also put together the required anthology. Details on her blog.
Final publication news is that I took part in the Amsterdam Zine Jam, sending some comics and getting a really cool catalogue in return. I would have liked to have gone to this one. Maybe next time.
Finally, I’ve been filling little sketchbooks with drawings of people on the way to work. But made them fit in the Nec Monster world. I have two sketchbooks, that will have a painted cover. If anyone is interested in buying them, I will have them with me at Leeds/Malta. ( I think £15 for one ).
Thanks for reading, hopefully I will see you at one of these events. Enjoy the rest of the weekend 🙂
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.
The comics season begins …
After the Saturday events our happy group went for a meal and we were provided with brown paper place-mats. Naturally the pens and pencils came out and we personalised them. I was trying to describe to Sally anne what Charles Burns looked like as we failed to get into his talk. This was from memory as i saw him briefly stop by to talk to Chris and Tom at the Adhouse table.
We didn’t pay for the bill with our sketches, sadly.
