Comiket Drawing Parade and Alby Figgs Book signing this Saturday


I’m going to be taking part in the latest Comica Comiket’s Drawing Parade along with a whole load of other comicky talent this Saturday 16th at the British Library 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB (on around about 2.00 pm). It’s also going to be the first opportunity for you braying masses to get your mitts on a signed and scribbled on, brand new Alby Figgs book from the Blank Slate Books table.


Gorgeously dressed by top graphic tailor, Woodrow Phoenix, the Alby Figgs book is now available for sale in all good shops and online through the Blank Slate website.

Admission to the Comiket this Saturday is free, by the way and is part of this month’s Comica Festival. Click the previous link for full details of what’s on. It’s also a good time to catch the final days of the British Library’s Comics Unmasked exhibition if you haven’t seen it yet.


Illuminate the dark in London














I’ll be attending the Illuminate opening evening at The British Library from 7 p.m. on Friday night, March 2nd exhibiting work from the newly polished up version of Oscar Zarate’s “It’s Dark in London” published by Self Made Hero. I illustrated short story The Court written by Neil Gaiman and there’ll be pages from the original and re-edited versions on show.

There’ll be lots of contemporary illustrators, comic artists and cartoonists doing drawy things and showing their ‘stuff’ amongst the illuminated texts and Mr. Scruff on the diskette, apparently. Should be, er, illuminating?
