Well, half a year goes by and here we are again, just as a bi-monthly momentum had begun to set in. Oy Vey….
Much has taken place in the land of me and my magical picture books. Metal Between Two Faces #2 is very, very close to inking completion and in general, I’m pleased with the improvements in clarity, character consistency and increased world building ambitions. There are a couple of pages where concept perhaps outweighed execution, but hey, far be it for me to point out where.
Before we go much further, here’s an example of an autopsy page. Hopefully, the consistency of the hatching makes for a more streamlined read-through.
You know the old proverb about buses. Well I have a feeling that even that is not relevent to the comic scene so far this year. We here at ClearInk have already mentioned conventions going on in the London area (Kapow / BD Comics Passion / Camden Crawl / Comica) over the last few months. So what does the comic scene need? You guessed it. Another Comic Convention.
Yes, it’s true. I have seen it with my own eyes. There is a thing called a “Sun” and the UK is basking within its warm glow. But people of a comic loving nature may need a little more to fully warm those cockles… Well how about a(nother) Comic Convention?
This years Kapow Comic Convention is being held on the 19th & 20th May at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. Last years event was epic and it seems that 2012 is also going to be a memorable occasion, with Warren Ellis, Joe Quesada, Frank Quietly and many many more attending.
Tickets for the event are still available at £35 for the whole weekend or £20 for a single day.
We really enjoyed last year’s Mocca Fest, and did so well that we booked a table for this years event there and then. Of course, there’s always a worry when you do really well at a Convention that it might have been a ‘one off’, and that a return to the same event might not be anywhere near as successful, but we’d decided to just go for it and see what happens.
Do you feel that there are not enough comic events in your life right now? Well, never fear. Just make sure you have a pen ready to write down this important message:
There is so much organised during these 4 days, rather than list it here, click on the link below where you will be blessed with everything you need to know.
I, like many people, draw cat comics. There’s a surprising amount of stories to be told when it comes to cats, yet there is also very familiar ground that needs to be trodden carefully. The very same can be said about how charities promote their messages. Being part of the design team for Cats Protection, this is something that comes up time and time again.
