Yeah alright, so it’s been an age since my last post. And I have actually been busy too, which is doubly annoying because I’ve actually had bloggables to share with you, and simply haven’t done it due to extreme laziness/business/general heat-envoked fatigue.
So let’s go back an age or two when I was a good blogger and pick up from there shall we?
So, I was lucky enough to get myself a spot at the International Alternative Press Festival on Sunday 5th and have to say, it was a bit of a blast.
As usual for these little graphic gatherings, I met some truly awesome people, had some bat-shit mad conversations and generally flogged a whole load of my stuff.
It wasn’t as manic as Comiket, but given that it was a Sunday and during that mad thing that was the ‘Lympiks (sorry but did you SEE the boxing?? It was frickin’ AWESOME) that was only to be expected.
So yes, the Olympics are happening and yes, this does mean you could be sitting at home on your bums watching a myriad of attractively sweaty examples of humanity perform exceptionally impressive feats of athletic discipline and skill while you revel in their glory without the hassle of all that physical exhaustion.
Or, if you’re luckily enough to be fighting with the Tubes in London this summer, you could even see said examples of sweaty, muscular perfection in the comfort of a multi million pound stadium where they will perform infront of your own very eyes and you sit, content with your popcorn without the hassle of all that physical exhaustion. And with Air conditioning.
OR, you could COME HANG OUT WITH ME AND OTHER SMALL PRESS NERDS in a crowded, hot and totally awesome room in Conway Hall bursting with alternative talent from all over the world of illustrative narrative!
Yes, the weekend of August 4th-5th is going to be a total blast in London as the Second EVER International Alternative Press Festival is taking place. Spanning over 2 days there’s going to be a fantatsic line up of workshops, talks from all kinds of graphical talents and zine fairs from all over the UK and Europe.
It’s going to be a real display of anything and everything visual and I can assure you, without a doubt that there will be something for everyone. For a start, I’LL BE THERE! Selling my wares, books, zines, prints, sock creatures, the lot! And you know you don’t want to miss that.
So take a break from all that exhausting looking at sport and come look at beautiful things with us!
