last of the festivals

Happy Halloween!Huzzah! Last comics event of the year cleared (I don't count the Comics Midwinter Retreat -- that's more pleasure than business) with moderate success (not out of pocket) and some very pleasant moments. White hair, rather scared, but it went OK. Thanks to everyone I saw/stayed with/got a lift from/met up with after ages/etc. and Happy Halloween to the lot of you.

Cool Spontaneous BiroStrip
Dunno what's going on, but it looks really nice...
I do stuff I don't remember doing all the time, then I see it in some comic or exhibit and think 'Huh? That looks like one of mine-Oh,it is...' Goes with the posession, I guess.

Re: Cool Spontaneous BiroStrip
my funky purple propelling pencil rocks! It's so smooooth to draw with --- it looks like it was drawn while drunk, probably at a dangerous party. It's pretty rare that I don't remember something *at all* ...

It was great to see you at Wintercon (or whatever it was called) -- glad you got to the art thing, too.

purple propelling pencil?
I think I want one.
I think I need one...
what make? where can i get one?

I went to honest stationary
But Paperchase or even smiths might do the trick. There are loads of different colours to chose from; red, green, blue (yes, that "invisible" light blue), indigo, yellow (very impractical), pink and lovely purple.

*thinks for a moment*

I'm about to go to lunch, I'll see if I can spot one for you.

Re: purple propelling pencil?
Got ya one. I'll pop it in the post later.

Good thing I went, the art shop had a load of new nibs in. Think I beat everyone there -- some of the packs were still sealed ...

Re: Cool Spontaneous BiroStrip
Yeh, I hate those things, but Wintercon seemed rather better than average, apart from my nearly coughing my tripes up in the Small Press panel...Hope I didn't miss anything , but I gather it was almost over. That and the earlier Education & Comics thing were quite interesting; more coherent than usual.
Hope you CAPTION types are enjoying the Serbia bits. I've got tons more comix, etc...
The stall looked cool; I'm still enchanted by the weensy Battenburgs. They might not have been consumed, but they just looked so bijou!
In addition to having similar hair colouway, incidentally, I VERY nearly wore my own skull T-shirt, but because I was feeling rough, didn't wanna draw any more attention to myself that was inevitable. Skull shirts do rock, though...

they were all et
-- several by me! The skull t-shirt had to be done, nearest I got to fancy dress this Halloween (sob).

Oh well, at least I got to give trick-or-treating children a handful of plastic caterpillars.

Re: they were all et
Several by me too, yum!
Failed to get to Comics&Education (only just arrived and wanted to look round) or Independent Stuff (not back from lunch in time) - how were they?
And how was Pizza Express? I was impressed to find summer pudding in November.

didn't go to anything
... too afraid of the crowds (:

think tinyjo, [Bad username: squigglyruth>, and <lj user=] might have done thought.

Did you make it to Fosca?

Re: didn't go to anything
Nope, ran into some people I knew from Bristol just as we were leaving (for home rather than Fosca - figured getting home after that would have been too tricky) and ended up in the hotel bar for an extra hour or 2 before heading home. Fun, and Elly got her promised sketch from Dave Goodman so she was happy.

Re: Cool Spontaneous BiroStrip
I was in town on the day, but "bob" help me, I still don't even know where the winterfest was held... I am becoming a ghost in the comics dimension

... because you were doing something else or because you couldn't find it?

(The Holiday Inn off Marchmont Street, Russell Sq. tube station.)

Cold repetitive charcoal swaddle
I had something else to do,
which I singularly failed to do,
which pretty sums up year #42

Re: Cold repetitive charcoal swaddle
you're very confusing sometimes, you know.
