yummy loot

Here are the contents of my backpack after a couple hours at the UK Web & Mini Comix Thing in east London:

I made some swaps with lovely people such as Sean Azzopardi and Cliodna and at last met David O'Connell, who's done things like the Comics Jam with me, but whom I'd never actually met. (In real life, he actually looks a little bit like his main character, Tozo.) I was admiring some of Marc Ellerby's stuff, and then twigged that he was another person who'd done the Hourly Comic Day project. A beautifully drawn book called Octopus Pie by New Yorker Meredith Gran was a happy discovery for me, and I bought a little monster painting by Jess Bradley.

Oh yeah, and I stopped by Gandhi Cash & Carry on my way home and stocked up on spices, since my cupboard has been sorely depleted since the East London Line shut down. TWO MORE YEARS of closure, I'm beside myself with indignation.

Haha oh, I recognise a good few of them! I wish I could have made it down myself.

Yeah, I bet these comics have been doing the circuit! I've only managed to read a couple of them so far, good times ahead.

Tozo is not meant to be me, although it would be noce to have a little robot pal.
Great to meet you!

I meant "nice" rather than the Italian for walnut.

Ha ha... you're a good nut! It was great to meet you, too! Finally got to put a face to the name, and very interesting to see the printed version of your work. Hope you had a good time at the Thing!
