self portrait

This picture pretty much sums up how I've been feeling this week.



Don't forget Zinefest this Saturday!
Contributors include Ellen Lindner, Jeremy Dennis, Lizz Lunney, Charlotte Percival, Sarah Lippett, Rosie Brice, Karrie Fransman, Erica Akerlund, Lady Lucy, Flo Brooks, Carolyn Alexander, Kate Dickinson, Jenny Linn-Cole, Kate Evans, Liz Greenfield, Leonie O¹Moore, Carol Swain, Tanya Meditzky, Francesca Cassavetti, Isy Morgenmuffel, SarahRay, Sally-Anne Hickman, Laura Stimpson, Karoline Rerrie, Sarah Lynch, Lucy Sweet, Siobhan Bowers, Rachael House, Lee Kennedy, Jess Bradley, Heather Middleton, Jackie Batey, Iro Tsavala, Siobhan Britton, Mireille Fauchon, Emma Welch and Susie Rumsby.



And I just realised that the Alternative Press Fair on 1 Feb is the same day as Hourly Comic Day, and I'm thinking maybe I can combine the two. Hmm. (Here's the hourly comic I made last year.)

I went to my friend Ellen's house for the Obama inauguration and she got really into it with cutout letters over the telly. I brought a big bag of Toll House chocolate chips that my American auntie sent and Ellen made chocolate chip cookies, which was the most American thing we could think of.

I've got some stuff up at Zine Fest but won't be able to make it to London which is a shame. Make sure you pick up one of my free mini-comics and postcards! :P

I presume what we can't see on the picture is that your riding a dog kennel scarred from your battle with the red baron.

Also I'm planning to knock off the hourlies during my trip to london.

You are right! Although most of the Budweiser I see here is of the Czech persuasion. So do you eat the Oreo together or do you pick it apart?

Pick apart and lick! Although I keep it together and dunk if there's milk.

I'll JUST be doing the hourly comic. I'm saving my first trip to London this year for The Thing 2009. Shame, the Alt Press Fair sounds like a right royal larf and I know a few people who will be in attendance.

I read your hourly recently. It was rather good. Rather good indeed! I can't wait to do it after my failed attempt on 24 Hour Comics Day!

Is the Zinefest flyer implying that 1980s Sheila Chandra will be in attendance? If so, I am swimming there NOW

Ooh, maybe! Start swimming! :-D

Dear Sarah

Did you get my comic? did it arrive safely, without crease or crumple?

Kind regards
