BEST CONVENTION EVER.
I had a really great time this weekend at London MCM Comic Con. I drew so many portraits (see a sampling above)! My shoulders still ache. I think it’s thanks to this very last minute poster I made for my table. All hail the portraits poster! Didn’t manage to grab a photo of our table this time, so instead have a photo of me freaking out in the hotel we stayed at (there was a booking error so we ended up in a really fancy hotel on Saturday. SWANKY).
I’m only sad that I was so busy I didn’t get to spend much time hanging out with everyone I wanted to. I really enjoyed those quiet moments when I could talk to my comicking friends about the challenges of freelancing and the projects that they’re working on. Sometimes it can be depressing, feeling all alone as an illustrator, like no one can help … but then I remember that all these amazing people exist and are making such wonderful comics, I get up off my arse and keep trying my best. It was really nice to see you all! (You know who you are!) It was also great that a bunch of my friends from Lincoln stopped by, hello if you’re reading!
Thank you to everyone who bought the new Cup 3 books, and hello to any new fans who picked up a copy of 1 or 2 over the weekend. I truly appreciate your support! I also picked up a souvenir of my own, to join my fabulous Bon Clay figure… Nathan Seymore/Fire Emblem from Tiger&Bunny.
Thank you to Amanda Tribble for putting up with me and my silliness for the weekend, and being such an amazing table mate as always. I don’t think I’d have managed very well without her! And thank you to Dean for being my errand-running, loving, supporting Finn. (Now what time is it? ADVENTURE TIIIIIME…!)
Bring on October!
