it's time to draw molly!

Remember I said, a few posts ago, that young comics reviewer Molly Bruton lost her arm to a hungry crocodile? (...I mean, a trampoline? Oh wait, she hasn't lost it, she still knows where it is.) Well, it wasn't just me drawing Molly, I kicked in after Adam Cadwell and Neill Cameron picked up on the #DrawMolly hashtag. You can see their Molly drawings over on the Forbidden Planet International blog here.

Thanks to the FPI blog and The Comics Reporter for featuring it!

I met up at the pub last night with several writers and illustrators. Here I am with Marilyn and Monsterville colleague Ed Vere, who'd just come back from Kerala in India, as part of the Hay Festival. Exciting! Ed and I will be doing a Final Draw-off in Monsterville on Sunday, 4 March, 1-1:45pm for The Big Write, along with other events by Jane Hissey, Katie Cleminson, Chris Haughton, Guy Parker-Rees and Jeanne Willis. (Oh, I do like Jeanne's online photo album!)

Last night's photos aren't brilliant, but you can explore some of their links if you like... Here are Karin Littlewood, Sally Kindberg and Heather Kilgour.
