I will be popping along to the Leed's THOUGHT BUBBLE Comic Art Festival this coming weekend. You will find me out and around the show on the Sunday. Although very last minute the organizers have kindly extended me the permission to sketch at a table when one becomes available later in the day. Up until then you can find out where I am at the show by following my Twitter feed. So if your after a sketch and I am at the bar, feel free to join me :)
I'll be sketching on Saturday 17th November at The COMSHOP Lichfield's ONLY dedicated store for computers and computer accessories, PC and laptop repairs, video games, comics and sci-fi collectibles!
They are celebrating being open 6 months and are doing a a week long of events. If any of you are in the area or know anyone in the area feel free to pop in. Look forward to seeing you there!
Last Sunday I had the chance to pop down to CICE. The CARDIFF INTERNATIONAL COMIC EXPO held at the MERCURE HOTEL.
The show, more of a Mini-Con was a practice run for next years plannedmuch larger Two-Day Event.
Unlike a lot of shows, the pace was relaxed, where I was able to slide off my kicks (literally) and interact more with the attendees and other Artists whilst sketching. The doors opened from 11.00 until 5.00. With an attendance of over 500 turning up and many a Cosplayer in tow.
It was nice to have a constant crowd but without the usual pressure of a larger event. Which gave me more time to chat to everyone individually that were in attendance. It was also good to chat away with my fellow guests especially Mike Collins who was sitting beside me.
I got to draw a nice mix of characters on the day, with a few unusual requests including a Tron style Captain America, which was challenging, but fun.
A big thanks to Mike Alwood for the invite.
& hopefully I will make it back down next year!
