DFC party!

What a brilliant evening! I didn't get back until 2am and am still trying to wake up, but here are a couple snaps from the night. My photo taking was sparse and a bit random. (Did anyone else take any photos?) Nikki Gamble wrote a review of the party on the South Bank for Write Away here.

Here's Vern and me with Giles Andreae, which was very exciting, both because Giles is lovely and because I'm illustrating one of his books. (Our agent introduced us and it was the first time I'd met him!)



And here's Lettuce and me with my good writer/illustrator friend Layn Marlow.



Vern needs one more person to have 100 friends on Facebook!

Edit And here's Lettuce recovering from the party with a cuppa, thanks to nice_cup_of_tea in Zurich!

Thanks! I'm glad I went with that one in the end, there was too much to think about without having to worry about hitching down a hemline every twenty seconds.

Just posted your Lettuce, thanks for that!

So THAT's Giles. Now I see why Jan fancies him...

Yes, Lettuce and Vern were quite taken with him, too!

Now you mention it, Vern DOES look pretty infatuated in that pic! :D I hope the admiration was mutual...

Funnily enough, the strip of mine they had on display featured mostly polar bears, which made Vern and Lettuce a little jealous.

Good choice on the dress Sarah - you look well glam. I wanna find a balloon but I've already subscribed... can't wait for my first issue to pop through the door. Hope Vern and Lettuce had fun at the party too.
Love Anna x

Re: congratulaaaations
Vern & Lettuce DID have fun at the party! But most people didn't see them because Lettuce's little sister chewed through the speakers' microphone cord and had to be taken home early.

The two glasses you are holding in the photo with Giles explains everything!

It was so lovely to meet you at last, and yes, the red dress was stunning. I'm worried about Mark Stafford though, who we seem to have lost somewhere along the South Bank...

It was brilliant to meet you at last!!! Yes, what DID happen to Mark? I hope he was okay. We ended up in the Soho club with Rian Hughes since Gordon's was too crowded.
... I think I'd better go and write you a proper e-mail!

I met Rian Hughes! That was my 'star-struck' moment of the evening - in fact I almost decided to risk missing my last train and come with you to the pub, but I was all sensible instead (and it was perfect timing for my train).

Aw, and here's me wishing you had been less sensible... We could have all kipped under a bridge. ;-)

Thanks! And I'm so glad I got to see you while you were in London! :-)
