The UK Web & Mini Comix Thing 2009

image008As 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.

Hello and Thanks

Hi there and welcome to “Epic Fail.”  (As you can see I have high hopes for this  web comic!)  Thank you for coming, I really hope you bookmark this page and come back often, for what an adventure there is to come!

I have many thanks to give this day.  Firstly is The Webcomic Beacon and its hosts Fes and Tanya.  These are lovely people who do a webcomic podcast on a weekly basis, providing lots of useful information and inspiration to webcomicers.  Without them I would not have had the courage to start this project.  Every episode was encouragement for me.

I also owe gratitude to Zander Cannon mainly for this page with its fantastically-useful comic template.  It made drawing frames 100% easier and I use it for every page.

I’d also like to thank the friends whom I role-play with.  Their creativity is the basis for much of the plot and characters.  They also help me by reviewing new pages and giving me feedback.  Their support so far is amazing!

On the technical side I’m grateful to ComicPress for its comic publishing theme (their hard work has made publishing a comic online easy for me) and by extension WordPress for its priceless publishing platform.

Last, but not-at-all least, is Xepher.net who has wonderfully provided the hosting for this website and all its content for free, with practically zero limitations.  They do this for many other creative individuals too, therefore I encourage you to support them to the fullest.  They are very friendly and their service has been impeccable thus far.  Cheers!
