It’s that time of year again folks, THOUGHT BUBBLE!
Easily my favourite convention of the year, Thought Bubble takes place at Leeds Dock in… well, Leeds, on 14th to 15th November. Super stoked to say I’ll be there at table 106 in New Dock Hall. Look at this handy map to show you exactly where that is:

So what will I have with me? ALL SORTS OF STUFF!
I’ll have all currently available issues of Orful Comics and Scene City with me for £3 each or £10 for the set! Running low on a few issues so grab ‘em while you can! I’ll also have mini comics and comics bundles with me
T4L is a comics anthology inspired by transport in London and yours truly has illustrated a story by anthology editor Virgil Yendell. You can grab a copy for just £3!
MERCH! Come grab badges and bags! I have those! You can buy them!

I’ll also have original comic pages for sale too! Pick up your favourite pages of Orful Comics and Scene City, £20 for pencils and £40 for inked pages. I didn’t do a picture for this one yet so imagine a sweet graphic here explaining what I’ve just said but prettier.
Venue WIFI dependent, I will be taking cards at the convention.
Also, the Sunday is Orful Comics’ 7th birthday! WOOOOOOOOO!! Might be doing a few surprises throughout the day/weekend so keep in touch via Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr for more info. If you’re at the mid-convention party on the Saturday night, I’ll be there celebrating the birthday and me and Bekki’s anniversary so come say hi!
Anyways, I think that’s about all for now!

THOUGHT BUBBLE FESTIVAL 2013!
It’s been a long year of conventions and comic drawing and finally the season draws to a close with the fantastic Thought Bubble Festival on 23 – 24 November. Spread across three halls of the Royal Armouries in the centre of Leeds, Thought Bubble is without doubt everyone’s favourite gig of the year.
I will be located at table 98 in New Dock Hall, next to the brilliant Rachael Smith. I’ll have all the usual gubbins with me. Scene City, Orful Comics, min comics, original artwork, As You Were 2 (providing I haven’t run out by then) and will also be doing moustache portraits to raise money for Movember through my friends at Gallery Of Mo.
I think that’s it isn’t it? Yes?
OH NO IT ISN’T!!
For the first time, I will be premiering my BRAND NEW BOOKS! Scene City 4 and Orful Comics 4 are debuting at Thought Bubble and I am so bloody excited for you to see them! I’ll do more of a post on that at a later date but let’s just say for now that THEY LOOK AWESOME!!

MCM Comic Con, Excel Centre, 25 – 27 October
Once again, I shall be travelling down to London’s Excel Centre to attend the MCM Comic Con and sell some comics. Always have a great time at MCM and this time round should be no different.
As always, I’ll be there with all current issues of Scene City and Orful Comics, plus mini comics, As You Were 2, original artwork and a pencil to draw something for you on the spot should you want that. I’ll be at table CM11 in the Comic Village next to my good buds Luke Surl and Matt Dyson.
But that’s not all! There are TONNES of amazing comic artists for you to go and visit and throw money at! There’s major good guy James Stayte who is releasing Big Jimmy 2 this weekend. There’s the fantastic Rachael Smith with her comics I Am Fire and The Way We Write. There’s all-round good egg Sarah Graley with Our Super Adventure. And… and.. Footloose! Zombie Bears! Penny Blackfeather!
Aww geez too many awesome artists to mention individually. I’d recommend heading on over to the full list and SEE FOR YOURSELF!
Can’t wait to see you all there!
It’s that time of year again. The crazy nerd-fest that is London’s MCM Comic Con returns to the Excel Centre next weekend and yours truly will be in attendance!
If you want to come down and say hi and buy some stuff, you can find me in the Comic Village at table J12. I’ll be there with all my usual junk including all current issues of Scene City, Orful Comics, mini comics, original artwork and sketches.
Very happy to be there this year as, tragically, I almost missed out on a table. I’d been so excited to get a table for Thought Bubble in the two hours that they were available that it completely slipped my mind and they had all sold old when I got round to it. Thankfully, brilliant Comic Village organiser Gary let me know when there was a cancellation and now, I will be there. HOORAY GARY!!
Anyways, yes, next weekend, London Excel Centre, MCM Comic Con, Comic Village, J12, come see me!
Hey gang, how’s it going?
Sadly, there is no comic again this week. I’ve been mega busy at work the past couple of weeks and honestly haven’t felt like drawing when I’ve gotten home. Hopefully things will be back to normal next week. Got a few other projects on the go at the moment as well so things might be a little sporadic over the next few months. Rubbish, I know, but hey, what can you do? If you’re really desperate for comics, you can always go and buy them from the store…
While we’re on the subject of buying comics, it’s Comiket on Saturday at Central Saint Martins in Kings Cross.It’s free entry and I’ll be there with half a table and all the usual comics for sale. I will be on table 49 in the foyer with Mike Georgiou. You can find a full floorplan of this COMPLETELY FREE event here. Should be a fun event so come on down, for free, and buy some independent comics and watch the drawing parade, for free, before hitting up a pub somewhere nearby. You can find all the pertinent details here.
Did I mention is was a free event?
Hopefully see all y’all faces down there yeah? Yeah!
The 2013 convention run is under-way! Two weekends ago was London Super Comic Con and I must say I had an absolute blast. It wasn’t the most profitable of shows for me but I met some great people, caught up with old friends and had a lot of fun. A truly lovely way to kick off the year.
Next up is Birmingham MCM this weekend at the NEC Centre outside Birmingham. Looking forward to this one since, coming from Coventry, it’s pretty much my home show. You can find me at table A26 in the Comic Village next to Nich Angell. I’ll have the usual array of comics, artwork and bundles with me and it’d be nice to see all your Brummy faces stop by.
There’s then about a month off before my next show, Comiket on 20th April. I’ve done this show a few times now with mixed results but I always like it for its indie focus. I think the new venue at Central St Martin’s behind King’s Cross will be a real step up too.
I’m certain there will be shows in between but the next show I’m officially booked for after Comiket is the fabulous Thought Bubble Festival at Leed’s Royal Armouries. I’m not gonna lie, I love Thought Bubble. It’s always a great mix of creators, the punters are amazing and the party is a fantastic way to close the year of conventions. I’m super excited about this year because tables sold out in roughly two hours!! I was very lucky to get a table and entirely owe that to being sat at my laptop hitting refresh for a good ten minutes before bookings actually opened. I’m sad that certain people I know have missed out but battle on we must.
Speaking of missing out, sadly, I appear to have missed the boat for May’s London MCM. I dithered about it for too long not being sure if I should since I don’t know if I’ll be around London by then and unfortunately, it has sold out. I’ve been put on a reserves list in case there are any drop-outs so all hope is not lost! If anything changes here, I’ll let you all know straight away. Despite its failings, I do love London MCM. I’ve been to every one for the past three years and always do well. I will be very sad to miss out.
Anyhow, that’s all for now!
Better get packing for Birmingham I guess…
