London MCM

Colin and I are at this weekend's fist major Comic Con London MCM.

It'll be great to get back out there and try to sell some comics so I can make room in my storage locker for printing some more :)

Please do pop by the table and say hello if you're at the event.

Marleen's last work...

For those of you who have enjoyed Marleen Lowe's wonderful work for AccentUK, you might be interest in seeing the work she did before her untimely death.

It's a children's book called Garden Stories and is available on amazon.

I've ordered my copy and am really looking forward to reading it, and being shown once again what a talent we lost.

Meanwhile in Coventry...

Last weekend we attended our first truly comic convention in almost 2 years.

It was the first ever Meanwhile Comic Convention in Coventry.

It was small and perfectly formed.

It was great to catch up with our friends from Timebomb Comics and Mad Robot Comics as well as catch up with Tripwire's Joel Meadows.

A weekend chatting about comics with other creators, professional and independent, passers by and customers. It felt great to be back.

It was also a pleasure to catch up with John Higgins and thank him for writing the Introduction to the second collected volume of WesterNoir. I also commission John for a Josiah Black portrait and am really happy with the result.

I may well use it for the Kickstarter.

Attended a Drink and Draw for the first time and had a great laugh with David Morris.

We had a great time and have already expressed our interest in attending next year's event.

V2A Fest

 As some of you are aware, this year saw the printing of my collaboration with V2A frontman Drone.

Never one to sit back and wait for things to happen, Drone decided that the lack of events had to be rectified and so he, and his team, created the first V2A Fest.

Set in Nuke City, which is named on the map on the inside cover of V2A - Wasteland Chronicles - Doomsday, the site of a sand quarry had been turned into the perfect setting for such an event.

It was a great opportunity to meet up with post-apocalyptic friends and have a look at the stalls.

Ever the showman, Drone had also arranged for some errant knights to beat hell out of each other in The Arena.

This event will get bigger and bigger over the coming years,
and will no doubt evolve as it does so, but I enjoyed being there at the beginning. 

Newark Steampunk Market

In the absence of the wonderful event that is The Asylum, for a second year, Colin and I ventured to Newark for the Sunday Market. 

About a third of the market was given over to Steampunk traders and it was pretty well attended by Steampunkers and locals alike.

It was a good chance to catch up with my daughter Jemma again, and nice to see her working the table... err... stall.

We had a really enjoyable time and would do that again without a second thought.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the stall for a chat and to those who bought some of our comics, hope you enjoy them.

Strange Times 3?

 Someone recently asked me if I was working on Strange Times Book 3.

He wanted to know what exactly happened to those guys?

I must say, I did enjoy drawing those books and enjoyed the way the characters created their own story really.

Maybe, maybe I should get my pencils out...

I Before E, Except After W, That's Weird

Well, my little collage book has been getting some attention, which is fabulous.

It's not something that people tend to see at Comic Cons and I think that helps draw people to it.

I do have a sequel in mind, and it centres around...

The Extra-Dimensional.
