Comic for Handmade Festival

I did a comic for the wonderful Handmade Festival.
This was put on a table at Bishop's St Church - where there were some great gigs going on.

I made the comic 'interactive' in that people could fill in their own speechbubbles and make up the story.

Here are some pics, click on them to make 'em bigger:

So this weekend I took part in my first ever comic convention - MCM London Expo!

Here are some pics:

Me and my glamorous assistant Paul Shinn

A little character sketch I did for someone.

My neighbour was the amazing David Lloyd - who did the V for Vendetta graphic novels.

My stall!

This was my home for 3 days...I miss it :(

These guys sold pretty fast...

OMG! I didn't sell out until the Sunday though so hopefully everyone who wanted one had a chance to grab one :)

Reminding myself that there was an outside.

My friend Abigail cosplaying as a leather-wearing kitten who has a giant front door. I think...

My glamorous assistant No. 2 - Kate Zillah :)

So yeah! I had a great time, met some amazing peoples and sold loads of comics and prints.
If you missed out on getting a comic then you can always go to my shop HERE

My next appearance is at Thought Bubble on the 23rd - 24th November in Leeds. Bring it on!
