I never got around to writing a post-Thought-Bubble thing here back in November, but for the record it was a fantastic weekend. I got to hang out with Kate Ashwin and Robin Hoelzemann, met Tom Siddell and Emily Carroll, and even got to see Emily talk shop with Becky Cloonan and Boulet(!) at a live podcast recording.
Best of all, though, I got to meet you guys! I wasn’t expecting anybody there to recognise the comic, let alone talk to multiple fans. It was amazing and humbling to see the real human beings who follow my work, and to find out what strikingly cool people you are. So many people who really care about comics and stories and the world around us.
So, Thought Bubble was a great experience and enough of a financial success that I’m going to be hitting the convention circuit a little harder this year. Nothing is confirmed yet, but for the moment I’m hoping to make appearances at LICAF, MCM Manchester, and Thought Bubble. I’ll keep this blog updated with details as things come together. Wherever I go, I’ll bring a few of everything currently stocked in the store plus minis of The Red Wolf and Women’s Work Song.
Finally, my (belated) 2015 resolutions:
- better hands
- more conventions
- take up oils
- work on graphic novel
- remember to keep this blog updated
