Scotland MCM Comic Con 2016

Thank you to everyone at Scotland MCM Comic Con over the weekend! It was really lovely to see people from last year and meet new people. I have a 1/2 table at the Bristol Comic & Zine Fair this Saturday. Best zine fair of the year - see you there?! I’ll be bringing FREE MINI COMICS as usual!

If you can't make it to Bristol, there's a list of autumn events in the blog sidebar and don't forget I have an online Etsy shop - ships worldwide.

I managed to catch some great bands play in Glasgow on the Friday night before the event - Joyce Delaney, Crywank & The Tuts. More gig sketches on my music blog tag.

Drink, Draw & Catch Em All

Pokemon Drawing Prompts
  • Pokemon from memory (pull a name at random)
  • Draw yourself as a gym leader
  • Draw yourself as a Pokemon trainer
  • Fan-design your fave Pokemon in new Alola Forms
  • Fan-design your fave Pokemon as a Mega Evolution
  • Design a Pokemon Gijinka character (humanoid interpretation)
  • Fan-design a more majestic Dragon/Grass duel type Pokemon than long neck Exeggutor
  • Design your own ‘Pokemon Fusion’ (usually the face of one Pokemon, on the body of another)

Misc Fits sticker sheets

I'm launching some new Misc Fits merchandise at Manchester MCM Comic Con this weekend. Misc Fits is a series of slice of life short story comics. I needed to design some stickers for the characters to use when they are using their phones to talk to each other - so I thought it would be fun to make full sets for each character.

I will have brand new FREE MINI COMICS to hand out at this event - so please do come by and say hi! You wont have the comic yet, even if you've seen me at a convention already this year.

Hometown by Laydeez Do Comics Birmingham

Laydeez Do Comics are a group who hold regular events around the UK and internationally. Creators are invited to do presentations about comics or their own work. LDC Birmingham has been running for a year and to celebrate Charlotte Bailey compiled an anthology with the theme Hometown. The profits will go towards bringing speakers from further afield to Birmingham.

I will have copies of the book available from my table at events (see the blog sidebar for an up to date list). You can order Hometown online through the LDC Big Cartel site

I contributed a 2 page comic and the wrap around cover illustration. Photographed pages are by Charlotte Bailey, Yen Quach and Bryony Attenburrow. The comic was printed locally with a risograph machine by Rope Press.

Comica Comiket 2016

Thank you to everyone at Comica Comiket yesterday! I had a really lovely time sharing a table with Kripa Joshi, the creator of Miss Moti and watching the drawing parade.

The next event will be London MCM Comic Con. You'll be able to find table CL7 in the Comic Village section of the event. There will be Comic Village ceiling banners and a map in the show guide. I will have a full table this time so I have space for a folder of original drawings. I have around 400 hand folded free mini comics to hand out, so please come say hi!
