I don't usually make non-art posts but thought I should comment about the Oxford creator's comic festival, Caption, which I attended this weekend.
Despite a nightmare journey (three and a half hours each way, horrible weather, completely inappropriate clothes - and cheers, whoever threw up in the sink of the Oxford Tube bus) I really enjoyed it. I was a bit nervous about going on my own, but it forces me to talk to people, which is a good thing (Whether the other attendees thought it was a good thing to be accosted by me is another matter)
The highlight, for me, was the DFC panel (http://www.thedfc.co.uk) which is a UK weekly comics for kids, available on subscription only.
I also sold all the copies of my comic "Journey"which I brought with me. Surely, everyone in the small press scene has read it by now? It paid for sushi at the train station. I was very grateful.
These are the pencils for a story I'm drawing for the anthology Parable 2. (written by John Gunningham, published by Viper Press) I'm really looking forward to drawing this story as I haven't drawn a fantasy story since my debut in online comics, about nine years ago. It's also got quite sparse dialogue. I like that as an artist:)
