sheer vanity

I was so surprised when my illustrator friend Kim Toohey sent me a crazy-hair photo of myself, so I just had a look at this fab website, Yearbook Yourself. Just curious, can anyone guess which was my real senior year photo?

So then I had to dig up an older yearbook, and scanned this picture. I was wearing one of those ubiquitous-at-the-time rainbow shirts that go from arm to arm.

And I also found my old press card from The Moscow Times. You can tell my diet was a little bleak at the time.

Okay, now I'm mostly done being vain for now. Go have a look at all these great comics we're getting in for the SCBWI Comixtravaganza!

There's going to be a amazing studio aka retrospective screening at the National Film Theatre on Sunday, including the incredible Varmints animation. Details here. I SO wish I could go, but I've already booked tickets for Comica, which is also sure to be good.

Question: Does anyone want a spare ticket to the talk by Dave McKean at the ICA this Sunday at 2pm? Stuart can't go now and it cost me £6, but I'll sell it for a fiver. You'd have to meet me at the box office to collect it. Edit: Ticket taken, thanks!

One more vain thing, don't forget to book a ticket for the Comica panel I'm doing with DFC colleagues Gary Northfield, Adam Brockbank, John and Patrice Aggs on Sunday, 23 Nov. Details here!

Bottom row, second from the left.

Oh, and I'll happily take the Dave McKean ticket! (Looks around). Oh no, wait, I'm 4,000 miles away.

I couldn't decide between the two.

What great photos! You're so versatile - all the hairdos would work in RL.

And thanks for the nod on studio aka - I think I'm free, so I'm going to head along. I still haven't got round to watching Jojo in the stars, so that'll be great!

Ooh, I know it will be fabulous. My heart almost stopped during Varmints. Please let me know how it goes, I'm very curious!

Hi, Sean! Ellen just nabbed it this afternoon, sorry about that!

Not sure if they've sold out, maybe you can still book a place.

Re: that above comment was rowley.
Hello, John! Hmm, you might not be that far off, although I'm not sure my fox is very scruffy. Have you read Posy Simmonds' picture book 'Lavender'? It has some fabulous urban foxes in it. They wear track suits, but they're more chavish than scruffy.

Yeah, those were great specs, I must've broken fifteen pairs of them, mostly unintentionally.
