Thought Bubble, not this year!

Over the last couple of years, I've attended Thought Bubble in Leeds. I've shared a table with Paul and Britt in the Geordie Ghetto with the other Paperjammers. Generally I've had a great time. It's a great event that's well organised and I've met loads of amazing folks there.

But this year I'm not be an exhibitor.

My main bugbear is the Sunday session. Frankly, last year's Sunday was poor both in terms of trade and footfall. I had great sales on Saturday but next to nothing on Sunday. Also, two days sitting behind a table was too much. After an hour on Sunday I knew it would be a drag with much fewer people and a strangely flat atmosphere.

I've got no axe to grind with the event or anyone there, I'll be there but as a punter this year and I'll probably have a great time.

Newcastle Mini Comics event Roundup

Here's the full right up of the Newcastle Mini Comics event on our Newcastle 24 Hour blog.

It was a brilliant day and I had loads of fun. Paul and Ingi's presentations were both great, loads of people turned up, some great comics were made, everyone had a fantastic time. Then the beer and bait was ace afterwards. Thanks to everyone who helped. I'm exhausted.

What next? Loads of the folks asked about future events. What this space.

Sexy Lollipop Lady

I've never seen a Lollipop Lady like this, but I keep looking.

I did this sketch using my Wacom tablet and GIMP. It was an attempt to draw a semi-realistic pin-up babe. I'm very pleased with her, she feels sexy in her skimpy outfit but retains a comic feel. I'm pleased with the way the cartoon underwear looks especially with the patterns on her smalls. The lace top was very easy to do on GIMP.

I might try some more ladies in different poses and outfits soon.
