Hey, I'm sharing a table on Saturday with my studio mate Gary Northfield this weekend at London's MCM Expo! Come along, it's a great chance to see some crazy costumes! (Here are some pics from previous years.) You can buy Morris the Mankiest Monster for a tenner, which will also get you a drawing in your book and some lovely badges.

On Sunday, there's a huge comics event happening in Cambridge! You don't have to be female to come to the Women in Comics Conference. (Woodrow Phoneix is speaking as an honourary female.) I'll be selling Morris books there, and here's the gist of the talk I'm giving:

Comics & Picture Books: women bridging the gap
When Sarah McIntyre got to know lots of picture book creators, she noticed that the majority of them were women. But when she started hanging out with comics people, she found she was often the only female in the room. She's made both picture books and comics, and thinks there are a lot of comics creeping by stealth into the picture book industry that comics fans might love to find out about. Come along on her tour showing work that bridges the two genres and broadens the definition of comics, and perhaps get some ideas for your own artwork.

How does one get to be an honorary female ? Does that require a wig ?

Quite possibly! Woodrow looked so fab in his blond curls the other day.

I keep telling you this
With all the expos and conferences that happen in England, it's amazing that you are able to get any drawing done! ;)
