my fairy can weld

For today's morning sketch, I drew a Flashdance fairy for Oxford's Caption festival, where the theme is 'away with the fairies'. Mark your diaries for this weekend, 15 - 16 Aug. On the Sunday, I'm giving a talk on crossovers between comics and picture books, and opportunities for creators to work in both fields. And I'm also on a panel with comics journalist Matt Badham on the Saturday. (...You, too, can draw a fairy for the Caption exhibition and auction!)



And the other diary date is coming up soon! Next Monday evening (the 27th), near Brick Lane, I'm giving a presentation of some of my work, then starting off a book-club type discussion of Shaun Tan's The Arrival. The event's sponsored by Laydeez Do Comics, but it's open to both guys and gals. Have a read of The Arrival, bring it along if you're able, and see you from 6:30-8:30 at the Rag Factory! ... I'm really nervous no-one will turn up, please come along and support me! :-)

(More details about events here.)

Awesomely adorable! I love the crosshatching and all the texture details (including the singed wings, yikes).

Hi, Dale! It's a dip pen; I think I was alternating between my Deleter nib and a mapmaking nib.

She really wants to be a bit more careful with that blowtorch.

The texture on the wings is really great! Welding might be the wrong job for a fairy, but she looks happy enough!
