Not long back from the 1st Cardiff Film and Comic Con and now in recovery mode. This wasn't the 1st show I have attended in Cardiff but it certainly was the biggest. I heard estimates of attendance of 20,000 which honestly wouldn't surprise me. Many people I spoke told told me queues snaked all around the Motorpoint arena.
I had a great time at the show and met many great people. Lot's of 1st timers plus many people I had met before at one event or another. I also had the chance to catch up with a few of my Artist and industry buddies which is always a pleasure.
Speaking of other Artists I had the chance to meet up with longtime Pal and sometime collaborator Simon Soul-man Williams and his new mate the Hoff. Yep that's right David HasselHoff.
Simon is working on a new book with the the Hoff, for more info check out here:
Over the weekend I had many requests and top of the list were sketch covers. Which is Something I enjoy doing as you never know what requests people may come up with. Below are a few samplings. Overall I really enjoyed this show and hope to be back for the next. Thanks to All for making it a Great one!

With a brief interlude between posts, here's a quick interview with me at the MCM Comiccon
I had an early start for this years Cardiff show. I would usually drive, but this time I grabbed a Cross Country Train down to the show. Although this meant an early start, I got the chance to see parts of the country I had not seen before.
That is the nice thing about doing new shows in new ways, you get to see things from new angles. It is always good to learn doing this job, which is something I hope I am continually doing.
I arrived at the Show 10 minutes before opening to be greeted by the friendly staff & a long queue waiting around the block, some in cosplay as their favorite characters. Others just wanting to get something involving their favorite characters.
Which is where I come in.
I had a nice mix of requests this time. Especially as much of them were characters I actually love myself. Getting to draw things I enjoy is one of the best aspects of this job.
