Well I made it to the Comic Expo last week, despite not knowing until the last minute whether I could afford the time. In the end I was terrified of missing anything and went along for the Friday and Saturday, but instead of late night bar-surfing returned to the hotel and got some work done. I also found a stall in a market in town selling hundreds of old 60s and 70s sci-fi mags. I was (and continue to be) in geek heaven!

Hello to everyone I met / hung out with / didn't get a chance to hang out with.
Anyone who left without a copy of Andy Winter's Septic Isle, Bob Byrne's Mr Amperduke or Joel Meadow's Studio Space is either poor or a fool. (Poor fool is also an option).

I just got back from the DFC launch party - which was a fun filled affair (and another opportunity for hanging out - it seems to be all I do these days...). I just have time for a quick blog post, a Belly Button update (29! 29! 29!) and emailing in some work before catching about twenty minutes sleep and heading off for the weekend.

More nude sketches from the last time I joined Sean at his life drawing classes:

More Elephant Words:
Number 13
El Capitan

To read: Outbreak of Violets (Alan Moore)
To watch: A Chris Ware animation from This American Life
To read and donate: A great Gene Colan story from Mystery Tales #1
(If you don't know; Mr Colan is very ill at the moment, and his family are struggling to pay the medical bills. Paypal donations to are being gratefully accepted)

THE BLOG IS DEAD (I mean the blog as a medium. This blog is merely sleeping.) I really miss writing the blog so I'm determined ...
