so who's going to birmingham?

I had thought we were going to launch Morris the Mankiest Monster in London, but plans have changed... I had a very nice invitation from BICS coordinator Shane Chebsey and now the Morris launch will take off at the British International Comics Show! While I'm there, I'm going to interview one of Japan's upcoming and very talented comic artists, Michiru Morikawa. I still need to find out more about her work, but from what I've seen, it looks amazing. She'll be launching her new book, Buskers. (Edit: Ooh, some more of her pictures here, thanks to Rob Davis. And more here! ...Rob, you rock!)

I'm a bit nervous, I've never even been to BICS, much less had a table, but I'm thinking of lots of fun stuff that I could do with it. I woke up in the middle of the night still having lots of ideas about it and couldn't get back to sleep, so I made a pair of Morris horns:



In the cold light of morning, they look like a real DIY jobbie, but I might wear them anyway. I should've learned to crochet, they'd look cool crocheted. Ooh, a woolen Morris hat with horns... dangit, this is when I need to know how to knit! Or felt! ...Ah well, knitting and felting for another time. And I've ordered some badges with these designs:



Are any of you going to BICS? Do you have any tips for me? Hope to see you there!
