pop up festival: the winchester house comickers blog their visit

Earlier in the year, I went to Winchester House School for World Book Day. The art teacher, Tobias Till, reported back that after I left, there'd been a big flurry of comics making, and I invited him to bring along some of his crew to sell their comics at last weekend's Pop Up Festival. I also encouraged them to keep a blog about the trip, and they did! Here it is!
