See you at the Thing!

The Thing is a web & mini comics convention that happens every year in the UK – and it’s on tomorrow, Saturday the 28th of March at 10am – 5pm in London.

You are going right?  This will be my first ever comics convention and I’m really excited!

I know a few of the people attending from online but nothing beats meeting someone face-to-face.  I haven’t got a booth – to be honest I wouldn’t know what to do with one – so I’ll be the person floating around with a sketchbook randomly molesting artists.  To make myself recognisable to anyone specifically seeking me out I will be wearing fairy wings.  Got that?  Yes, it’s random and not related to Epic Fail in the least, but they are really easy to spot!  So no excuses for not saying hello!

I’m going to set up twitter on my phone and send updates of what I’m doing throughout the day. I’m hoping to have lots of fun!


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.
