As a UK web comic creator I have decided I am duty-bound to go to The Thing this year. It is the only major exhibition in England for small-press and web comic artists and takes place on the 28th of March at Queen Mary University in London.
It will be my first time attending and I will not be exhibiting, however I may consider doing so in the future. Aside from the many stalls there will be drawing and reading spaces, so I will be bringing my sketchbook.
If you are going and would like to meet up please let me know. I’m eager to meet other artists and comic-lovers. It may seem too early to think about, but you can save a lot of money by booking both tickets and travel in advance. I hope to see lots of people there.
