One of the fabulous things about this weekend was having minders! Cliodhna Lyons ran the comics day and liased with the children's book people and made sure everything ran smoothly, she's amazing. Then Tom Donegan took me around workshops on Monday, and Live Journal buddy and Dublin local Dale O'Flaherty (daleof) took care of me on the Saturday and Sunday, getting me to one of the workshops and making sure I didn't get mugged or run over. (If I'd been made of bone china, I couldn't have been better looked after, heh heh. Thanks, Dale!)
Here's an old guy Dale and I sat next to by the river. He was doing some needlework and let me draw him, it was a bit magic, really. I'd love to spend a bit more time drawing him. The second pic's by Dale, of me sitting on the ground sketching something.
Dublin's one of the cities who have started up a bike share scheme, so I got excited about that:
And here are some drawings Dale did of me while I was being a total wide-eyed tourist and he was trying not to be embarrasssed. It was great running around town with someone else who's happy to get out the sketchbook.
Here's one I did of Dale in the pub, I think it came out well!
Showing off our inky fingers.
