Probably not, as I'm going to be at conventions at least one weekend a month from February to September.

Had an enjoyable day at the Birmingham Comics Festival yesterday. Good to meet readers of all ages and to catch up with friends in the industry. And it was an absolute pleasure to have the table next to the legendary Ian Kennedy! A true gent and his work is as fresh and superb as ever.

Here's an updated list of the conventions I'm a guest at this year. Hope some of you can make it to future shows.

I went to the edgbaston mart yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of artists in attendance....

IAN KENNEDY!!!

But a fair few others too.

What was quite strange was the second floor setup. To get to the restaurant was a trip through the cosplay and body painting section. Quite a number of nearly nude women (apart from a couple well placed band aids...) having their complete bodies painted.

I almost chocked on my jelly babies.

Of the 5 hours I spent at Dunfermline Comic Con, three and a half of those were spent beside Ian. He is a joy to be with.
