Brighton Zinefest!

I'm back from Brighton for a couple of days and off to Berlin on Thursday (not looking forward to the flying though...planes ugh) So here is a long blog to last until next week!

Firstly check out these AMAZING FAN COOKIES! they were added by Deanne Brady to my facebook fan page. Hairy Midget Elf cookies, I think I need to start selling these!!

Secondly I had a great time at Brighton Zinefest! thanks to everyone who bought comics, badges and tshirts etc. Some photos-

More photos here in my facebook album and I might add some more that my friend took soon. It was a packed hall like the photo above from the start til the end of the day which was great and there were loads of cool exhibitors including Ninja Bunny, Fever Zine, Bedsit Journal and Jimi Gherkin! I forgot to mention before I went but I have done a special zine for my friends band- it is a zine CD with 3 tracks and an original vintage map cover. You might be able to get a copy by contacting her via her myspace page- Best Selling Atlas!

When I was in Brighton I was very excited to find out Jeffrey Lewis was playing there on the Sunday night! He did a segment of his Watchmen comic lecture which is at the ICA tonight!! Here is a close up of his impressive guitar sticker collection from the gig- I especially like the wristband taped behind the strings...

Anyway, new sushi up today for PANCAKE DAY (my favourite day of the year YUM) and thats it for now....I'm off to beat last years record of 12 pancakes in one sitting.

♥ Old School Dinosaur Love! ♥

New sushi uploaded today- it is based on an old sketch (which i've added too) and the dinosaur version is based on this awesome Ladybird Dinosaur book that was 5p in a charity shop!!

I was sorting out a giant cupboard of junk in my major house tidy to find all the things I've lost and came across a few old drawings and cartoons (like the sketch just mentioned) as well as mountains of amazing junk (thundercats figures, totoro notepaper, wool, micro machines, boglins, animation paper, old sketchbooks, clothes I forgot I had, stickers, polaroid photos of cats) I also found the ORIGINAL ugly dinosaur drawing...! (If anyone is interested in buying it just email me) It is the dino that is available as a fantastic screen printed tshirt from I Dress Myself! I've mentioned them before- they have some great tshirts by the likes of David Shrigley and Jon Burgerman. I especially want the Peter Conway "I can Hardly Contain My Indifference" Tshirt and the Nicholas Saunders "Cosmo" (which is only in mens sizes boo! The tiny wizard reminds me of Keith the Wizard!)...but hey it's my birthday is soon don't forget! Oh also, I'm currently distributing I Dress Myself badges (i'll be giving them out at all upcoming stalls) and plan to do a comic about that as soon as they are all given out. :oD

Things have been a bit quiet lately but I have some new work and stuff coming up SOON. I also have a wad of new stockists that I will to add to the website when I get chance. Aaaannnnddd...You can now follow me on twitter, if you want.

Oh and... I'll be at Brighton Zinefest on 22nd and Berlin Comic Börse on 1st March! oh YEAH.

Expect more vintage* sketches and such like on the comic sushi over the next week!

*as in, found on my floor
