Thought Bubble

Wow, what a crazy weekend. The Thought Bubble festival convention was back at Saviles hall and the Royal Armouries in Leeds again, so yesterday me, Kat (go and Give Yourself a Scone) and John "Jobby" Haworth all made the trip up from Wakefield on the 110 bus, at the ridiculously early time of 8:45AM. It was supposed to be 8:30, but buses being buses...

It's a great convention full of great people, and unfortunately I forgot to take my camera so I go NO PHOTOs, but we got to meet the delightful Timothy Winchester (or TIMCHESTER) again, and I bought some prints and things, including a kickass Link from the new Skyward Sword game by Abby Ryder.

Also, for the first time ever, the convention was over TWO days this year! Today was a bit weird because I went on my own as Kat had work, and Jobby was over in Sheffield. I'm absolutely full of cold, and I had massive social anxiety so apart from following the aforementioned Mr. Winchester around like a lost puppy for a bit I was on my own not really talking to many people/anyone (with the notable exceptions of Jon Lock and Nikki Stu)

Anyways, the main reason I made my way back there in the cold and fog this morning was because they were announcing the winners of the Northern Sequential Art Competition, which I managed to get an entry in for this year (just!)

Thanks for the title John
I really wasn't expecting anything, the field of entries was awesome, but I came away with 3rd place in the Over 18s category, winning me a bunch o' stuff and also my comic appearing in the Thought Bubble anthology next year! Excuse me whilst I do a little dance before collapsing.

The stuff I won
Right, now I'm off to draw Angela Lansbury for Angela Lansbury Week, and you should too. I'm sure The Timchester would be most appreciative.
