Thoughtbubble comic con 2011

This weekend I was privileged enough to take part in the Thoughtbubble comic convention in Leeds. I was sharing a table with Andrew Tunney and we had a blast!

Both days were pretty constant for us, there was a lot of interest in both Peabody and D'Gorath and Girl and Boy which was great.

I had my first ever con sketch to draw!

I got to speak to a childhood hero of mine Mr Nigel Dobbyn who complimented my work (ohmygosh) and to Ian Edington who I got all cotton mouthed talking to and nervously gave him a flyer.

I got to catch up with a bunch of very talented individuals who I've spoken to at various cons including Antony Johnson, Kieron Gillen, John Allison, Joe List and Marc Ellerby.

I also got to make a bunch of new friends in the form of the We are words and pictures guys he
aded by Matthew Sheret and Julia Scheele and Sarah Gordon who were both lovely and sat on a table behind us.
There was also the roller derby team the Hot Wheel RD who were super nice and got a bunch of the stuff off my table :D

I'd like to say a big thank you to Lisa Wood for putting the con together and making Peabody and D'Gorath con debut so wonderful!
