get ready for leeds thought bubble: comics jamtastic!

Hey, I want to do a big shout-out for Thought Bubble comics festival in Leeds next weekend! This is one of the very best comics festivals in the UK - in the world, even - and worth travelling far to vist. Last year I went as a punter so I could just enjoy it, chat with people, go to talks and browse the comics. (You can see my blog write-up here.) This year David O'Connell and I are running the Family Activity area, Jampires present: COMICS JAMTASTIC!

I've done this in two previous years - 2011 and 2010 - and it was great because it was a place people could crash at a table if they needed to sit down, chill out and just DRAW. We had visitors of all ages, and some great artwork and comics came out of it! Dave and I have been getting ready for it, with some decorative bits and bobs:

And Dave's been printing badges:
