But I'm All Better Now

I've had a busy week or two! Firstly, there was the Bristol Small Press Comics Expo - which was great, even if I didn't make much money (the princely sum of £30 after expenses!). I partly put this down to being positioned in what my fellow exhibitors and I called "The Tumbleweed Room". Next year it's going to be back in the Commonwealth Museum, where everybody happily exhibited under one roof for a number of years in the past - no more ghettoes! - which I'm confident will make a difference. Big "Hello" to everyone I caught up with there - good to see you all.

Anyway, there was that. Then I got ill - some sort of horrible stomach virus which my son brought home from school from one of his dirty, dirty little friends - which knocked me flat for a couple of days (when I wasn't leaning over a toilet bowl), making me scramble to catch up ever since. I'm just about back to a manageable schedule now - almost in time for Heroes Con on June 3-5 to knock it into a cocked hat all over again. In the nicest possible way, of course.

There have been interviews, and work on book production matters, and writing outlines, and other such things that I am frustratingly not supposed to talk about yet. I am reasonably confident that I will soon be able to lift the veil of secrecy on at least some of this stuff. When that happens, you, my faithful blog reader - yes, you - will be the first to know.

In the meantime, here are a few sketches I was unable to give away - yes, you heard me, unable to give away - in Bristol. I'm confident the next convention I attend will not present me with this problem. Charlotte - don't let me down.


  1. Those are fabulous sketches and I would have been happy to take one of them off your hands. Alas, wrong continent...

  2. Wow, Love the sketches, especially Fingy! Cannot imagine not wanting to take any of those home with me. I would think all of those would find a home at HeroesCon.

    I love the Skrulls sketch (especially the chins).

    They way I look at it, they're thinking: "Arggggghhhhhh! We have been sketched! We are exposed!"

  4. That is the craziest thing I have ever heard. Surely this is more evidence to back up the unlikely - but day by day coming to seem more plausible - 2012 apocalypse?


Due to excessive spamming, I've reluctantly had to activate Comment Moderation on this blog. Please leave a comment and I'll get to it ASAP.
