MCM London Comic Con October 2014 - Complete!

It was a long, but fun weekend.  Thanks to anyone who dropped by and if you bought comics, I hope you enjoyed them!

Usually Japanofail steals the show, but this time there was a way more even mix of people picking up some of my other titles.  This is encouraging as I'm hoping to work on some non-Japanofail projects in the coming months (although of course I'll still try and get some 'fail done in between times). :-)

Next event - Thought Bubble in Leeds!

Camcon 2014 - Complete!

Camcon brings my summer comics season to a close for this year.  It was a gentle day out in the marquee where I was exhibiting and made for a relaxed and friendly event.

The Japanofail graphic novels were the best at finding new homes for themselves, closely followed by Ball.  As ever thanks to anyone who dropped by for chats, and if you took anything away with you I hope you enjoy!

Next event is the big one: October MCM London Comic Con!

No rest for the wicked - it's time for more Japanofail!  Issue 10 arrived from the printer today and is ready for sale from Camcon this weekend and at future events.  Come check it out!

10 issues though... that's a lot.  I'm really happy to have been able to hit this milestone.  Let's see just how far we can go! :-)

Comica Comiket 2014 - Complete!

So the British Library is a pretty nifty venue which made of a friendly and relaxed event.  I was sharing a table with the awesome Eterntalbeliever which made things even more fun. :-)  Thanks to anyone who dropped by for chats and comics!

It's no rest for the wicked however - next event: Camcon in 2 weeks!

MCM Manchester 2014 - Complete!

It's been a hot summer, and the air con at Manchester Central was a huge bonus!  It was a good event with a larger crowd than last year, but spread out over an expanded two days.

Quite fair few people dropped by my table over the weekend and it was fun to chat with all of you! :-)  Those who walked away with some of my titles naturally have the best taste and I hope you enjoyed your purchases!

Next up: 16th August at Comica Comiket!  Busy busy!

LFCC July 2014 - Complete!

It was a long weekend, but the London Film and Comic Con is over!

It was a good event to have a decent chat with peoples, so if you dropped by over the weekend, it was nice to catch up. Also if you took comics away with you - I hope you enjoyed! :-)

There's no time to rest however, MCM Manchester is next week!  Hope to see more of you there! ^_^

Japanofail Volume 1

Japanofail finally makes it into graphic novel format! Rejoice!
Comprising the first six issues of the series, Japanofail Volume 1 is a 160-odd page, perfect-bound chunk of comic strip awesomeness filled with geeksplosions and otaku fails.  For those encountering the series for the first time, Japanofail is a comic-strip series that focuses on otaku life, anime, manga, cosplay, politics, catgirls, video games, mechas, samurai, poetry, life, death and everything else in between!  Proceedings are generally in 4-panel format, but this is a very loose guide at the comic freestyles in whichever way it feels.

Japanofail is easily my most successful comic series, and this year celebrates its 5th anniversary.  The timing seemed right to get a compilation done, especially as earlier issues are starting to run low on stock.  This is a good chance to jump in on the fun, and I will have it on sale at all my upcoming events.  Come get some fail!

MCM London Comic Con May 2014 - Complete!

This event was a bit of a special one for me as it coincided with my 5th anniversary from when I first attended an event to sell my comics.  Over this time I've released over 20 issues and made a lot of friends, and hope to continue for as long as I find it fun (which hopefully will be for a long time yet!).

As ever, Japanofail was my most popular title at the event, and Ball's debut being well received too.  In fact I think this was my most successful event ever!  A good weekend overall then! :-)

Next event: London Film and Comic Con in July followed by MCM Manchester Comic Con the weekend after.

The Tea Book

In at the last minute for Comic Con this weekend is The Tea Book.  Edited by the awesome Rebecca Burgess, The Tea Book is an artbook of multiple artists who have drawn characters inspired by various flavours of tea.  I chose Oolong tea and is previewed here. :-)

It's a bit of a deluxe thing, large in size and full colour.  The standard of work inside is high, so it'll be well worth a look!

New comic time!  Ball is a self-contained short comic about an individual who loves their ball.  It is a silent comic with no dialogue or sound effects - everything is explained solely through the visuals.

This one was a lot of fun to make.  Please look out for it at events!

Japanofail 9

It's almost time for MCM Comic Con, and Japanofail 9 has arrived in time for it!  Not many self-published series make it this far... o_0;  With this issue Japanofail is also celebrating its 5th birthday.  Five years of fail is a lot to bear, but I'm sure you can handle it!  If you're attending feel free to come take a look.  Hope to see you there. :-)

Demoncon 7 - Complete!

February is a bit of a cold month, and the nearby River Medway was kind of (totally) flooded, but Demoncon went down yesterday and it was a lot of fun!

The Royal Star Arcade is a nice venue - a shopping arcade right in the centre of Maidstone - and brought in a lot of people for a local event.  Thanks to everyone who came by, you all made it a really friendly event to be at.  I hope anyone who bought comics enjoyed what they went away with.  I hope to see you at a future event!

Next up should be MCM London Comic Con in May.  3 months to go!

2014 start!

It's been a loooong while since the last update.  Basically I've been hibernating - sorry for the wait!

I've been working on some new things which I'll talk about nearer their completion.  For now though I've got some events lined up for the year.  So far it looks like this:

Demoncon 7 - 16 February THIS COMING SUNDAY!

MCM London Comic Con - 23-25 May

London Film & Comic Con - 11-13 July

It's a decent start to what promises to be a good year (I hope!).  I've got my eye on one or two other events that I'm also wanting to be a part of.  If it happens when bookings open up, I'll update as and when. ;-)

See you soon!
