getting excited

I was going to draw a picture of my first attempt at Wii Guitar Hero this weekend, but I made a bad start of it so I will show that to you another day. I am printing, folding, sewing... getting ready for the fabulousness that is happening THIS SATURDAY! It looks like I may actually get my mini together, which is actually a 40-page maxi, of lots of morning sketch stuff.

I was poking around in the Pont de la Tour bakery and saw some very cool packaging for this tea by a DJ and cartoonist named Mr Scruff. I almost bought the tea just for the box, but I didn't have enough money on me.

My neighbour friend is sitting next to me on the floor copying Simone Lia's Billy Bean's Dream page by page. Hopefully she will let me show you some of her expert copying skills. It's a picture book, but she says that if she combines lots of the pictures onto one page, that will make it a comic. So I'm not one to argue.

So excited she's going to get a stomachache soon

Oh man, that always happens to me when I'm very happy.

I just can't win!

Oh, no! Poor tummies everywhere.

Yay! Save me a copy of the mini-maxi!

I'm trying to print up a bunch! I've done 50 so far, will try to make a few more.

Awesome. I played 'Eye of the Tiger' and got WAAAAY too into it.

I'm very leutice about the thing i'm hyper while cutting comics out.
Also Mr Scruff is great I didn't realise he was still working, I saw him play a set for my 18th Birthday.... 8-9 years ago...

Don't get too hyper while you are cutting, I want to see you with all your fingers intact!

Funny about Mr Scruff, I was with my friend Dan and he knew all about him, too. I'd never heard of his DJing or comic (although I'm pretty clueless about DJs, so I guess that's not surprising).

Oh no no no...I may have to buy some of Mr. Scruff's tea...I love his cartoons! And I can justify it (despite the tea glut chez nous) because I bet Stephen would be amused by it, even if he doesn't drink tea!
Thanks for the tip - and yet another excuse to go to Heal's and Fortnum and Mason!

It's a pleasure! :-D

You need a Mr Scruff mug like mine to drink your tea out of :)

That is a great mug! :-)

Ha ha...maybe someday! In the meantime, Mr. Scruff has just made me feel really silly. I went to the Japan Centre the other day, so I thought I'd go to Fortnum and Mason, which he has on his website as a stockist. No luck! In fact, I was treated like a deranged person by the F+M staff (though by comparison to their calm composure, I bet everyone seems deranged.) On to the Westfields Waitrose, which seems a bit more likely than F+M, anyhow...

They have the boxes of tea at La Pont de la Tour bakery on Shad Thames, if that's any help. :-)

I found out about the Thing too late and a) I'm working and b) I HAS NO MONEY

So gutted

Oh no, this is tragic! Stay tuned, comics people will come together again. And all be skint together, wahey.
