Thought Bubble Comic Con
My next event will be Thought Bubble, on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November in Leeds at the Royal Armouries. It’s known as the most-loved comic con in the UK, especially for small press comics and art. I went as a visitor last year and it was a really friendly event – I went home with a LOT of prints and comics. It was really inspiring to see so many styles of comic art and so many indie artists publishing their work themselves. I really enjoyed buying work straight from the people who’d drawn it, and going to shops didn’t seem quite the same afterwards.
The two day convention is just part of the comic art festival, which starts on Sunday 11th, with LOADS of events around Leeds, including an academic conference, talks and workshops.
The con’s open each day 10am-5pm. Leave plenty of time to have a good look at everything – last year I got stuck in traffic and arrived late, and got escorted out by rollergirls when the convention had to close!
Weekend passes are £20 and single day passes are £12 (or £8 if you’re a cosplayer!) – get them here…
How to Make Sushi Comic
Take a look at my comic recipe book for how to make sushi at home. It’s available online as a gift set with a sushi rolling mat and two pairs of chopsticks. It makes a great gift for people who like Japan and Japanese food.
I’ll be in New Dock Hall (the larger hall) on table 47-48, on the wall on the right hand side when you go in, next to he fantastic Creature Kebab (whose print is on my wall!). The full floor plan with listings is on the Thought Bubble website.
And if you can’t make it to Leeds, I’ll be back in London the weekend after at HYPER JAPAN!
