goodness!

Hey, guess what, I got to meet Lucy Knisley! (That's lucylou.) I'd always wanted to meet her and I've been reading her online comics for a few years now, but Chicago is a long way away, and then suddenly, there she was in London! I was already going for dinner with some comics creators who live locally, so she and John came along. Yay!




Here's a photo of Akanksha and James Turner eruditebaboon) with his remarkable 'tache.

Peter Stanbury and me, playing with the candles.

Somewhere in the back there, a very blurry John Aggs


We got to see the amazing comics travel diary Lucy is keeping on her trip, and I got inspired to make a comic this evening. (Not that it is at all autobiographical, oh no.) We get the most amazing African outfits on Sunday mornings in our neighbourhood, bright colours an huge head wraps everywhere. It's not a particularly famous London tourist sight, but Sunday mornings in Peckham really should be.
