I've been away a week for a well deserved rest.
Not that I deserved the rest, no, it was for Karen. She works incredibly hard at the job she does, and with all the problems and stress recently, I decided that she needed a break.
So off we trundled to Newquay, her with a stack of books to enjoy, me with pens and scripts to do loads of sketches and breakdowns for all the stuff I'm working on.
Thoroughly enjoyed the rest, the weather was a bonus, sunny and warm.
Unfortunately we packed for an English summer...you know- Big waterproof coats, chunky woolies and such, so we did feel a bit overdressed.
However, I did manage to do loads of sketches for "6 Months" and "Hell's Nazis" and one or two other secret things.
This weekend, I'm off to BICs, the Birmingham International Comic show and I'm really looking forward to it. Seeing old friends, meeting new ones and this year there are loads of small press books that I want, I'm even in one or two.
Especially looking forward to seeing Garen Ewing's "The Rainbow Orchard", AccentUK's "Whatever Happened to the world's Fastest Man and Strange Time's", Insomnia's Burke and Hare and Cancertown, Bryan Talbot's Grandville, in fact I'm gonna be spending a small fortune on all these lovely books.
So if you're going, and you see me, do say hello, I don't bite...well not too much.
