surrey libraries children's book festival

First, a quick announcement! Remember that amazing weekly comics magazine that got me going with Vern and Lettuce, The DFC? Well, it's coming back! Renamed The Phoenix, we're getting back some of our fab editorial staff, lots of the original comics creators, and a whole bunch more!

Since my sister, Mary McIntyre, lives so far away, today was the first time she's ever seen me do an event. Here's a pen sketch I made of her on the train-ride out to Surrey. I'm having to come to terms with the fact that whenever I draw someone in my family, it never comes out looking much like them. And the train went over a bump just as I was drawing her nose.

At Ewell Library, Mary even helped me with my Comics Jam workshop!
