Thursday saw delivery of mine and Steve Holder's little book of short Robot stories, Robot Shorts, and once again Andy Bloor has added his design skills to make this a great little package. I can't be more pleased with how this has turned out.
I'll be in touch with people who contributed a pin up over the coming week, to see where to send their free copy to, and will have this on the stall at all future Conventions.
Belmat, who will also appear at Cons (if I can squeeze him into the bag) is still progressing, albeit slowly due to all the other things going on. Jane, my wife, made a little pair of shorts out of fabric with a robot print on it, to go inside the ex-washing machine. See... layers within layers :o)

I've managed to finish the silver One-Eyed Robot. He doesn't appear in Robot Shorts, sadly, but I'm pleased with how he's turned out.I managed to get some of the words to show through the paintwork, which is what I was trying to acheive, and the silver colour brings all the pieces together nicely I think. I've still got to finish Belmat's hands, but I'm getting there with him as well.
I must say that making these has been very enjoyable and I may do some more.
In other news, the cover proof for Robot Shorts has been sent out but is now in the local Royal Mail depot as nobody was in to sign for it ... drat. I'll pick it up on Saturday.
Also, it's EAGLE Awards time again and both Andy Bloor and The Fall Of The Wolfmen have been listed ... if you think them worthy then we'd welcome the vote.
Oh ... and there's another great Fastest Man review over at http://comicsanonymous.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/whatever-happened-to-the-worlds-fastest-man-2009/.
