It’ probably worth a mention given the nature of this blog that I’d been planning to attend this weekend’s MCM Expo in London, sadly it was not to be. Put it down to my ill advised last minute planning or the general surge in travel that occurs around the end of half term/reading week but all transport down to London ended up being either far too expensive or simply booked up. Living at the other end of the country doesn’t exactly help matters either to say the least.
I’m not going to whinge too much as it is largely my own fault for not planning ahead; it’s just a slight disappointment. Not just because it would have been a lot of fun, but because it would have likely been a useful experience in line with my project. There’s a great deal of relevant comic culture on display, while it would have been good to see some of the self published scene too. All in all a missed opportunity.
That said there is some good news: while I may not have made it to the Expo in person strangely some of my work did.
A while ago I made a short 9 page comic A Cornered Fox as a part of the anthology SIX – organised and printed by fellow comic creator Ushio, a sizable thanks to him for inviting me on board and sorting everything out :) All being well it should be on sale at the Expo somewhere as I write this. Again a shame I couldn’t be there to see it in person, but it’s comforting to think people are at least seeing my comic.
