Hey folks, just a quick post to let you know what I've been up to over the last two months..
Firstly, Thought Bubble! Despite the rain I had a top weekend. Met some great people making awesome comics, plus Mark and I aired our latest sample from Makers of Monsters and got a generally positive response - very encouraging! And a big thanks to Rachel for helping out so much with the stall - you rock.
Next up, I was invited to speak to Creative Media Production students at City College Brighton & Hove. I told them all about my work on Think Like Churchill and then got to look at some their sketchbooks. There was some fantastic work in there, plus they were a really welcoming and friendly group - I'm hoping to pay them a visit again sometime soon!
Finally, I took part in an 8 hour comics challenge.. Adam Moore laid down the gauntlet, inviting Anthony Atkinson and me to join him in producing 8 pages in 8 hours with zero prep. Based loosely on the 24-Hour Comic challenge created by Scott McCloud (which is now an international phenomenon), we decided to do a cut down version because, well, we're wimps. That and also the fact that we were taking part in Monthly Milk, a great monthly arts event in the centre of Brighton that um, lasts for 8 hours! Anyway, here is my contribution in all its badly drawn glory: JAIME'S 8 HOUR COMIC CHALLENGE (warning: contains swear words and toilet gags). Here is Adam's amazing creation, Anthony's will be made public soon!
Whilst all that was going on I've also been keeping the Afanc ticking along - so do head over to afanc-tumblr.com to check out the latest instalment. More coming in the New Year...
Anyway, that's pretty much it for 2015 - hope you had a great year and enjoy a relaxing Christmas holiday! See you in 2016!
