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.
I will be at the Cardiff International Comic & Anime Expo on March the 2-3rd. That is this coming weekend to all those with calendar phobias out there.
The Event is hosted in the Mercure Holland House on 24-26 Newport Road
in Cardiff. The doors open Saturday Morning from 10 until 6 & 10.30 until 5 on the Sunday. These times are for Pre-booked tickets. Tickets on the day are available from 11am. These will be limited availability though, so remember to cue early!
I will be Sketching all weekend, 1st come 1st serve. Remember I can only produce so much in a day!
