The Lik & Neon shop is now stocking some of my stuff

I was in the Lik & Neon shop today near Bricklane. A really cool little shop which sells loads comics, zines, magazines, t-shirts and lots of other home made crafty things like jewellery. The nice lady that runs the shop along with the help of her assistant and 3 cats decided they liked my stuff and have decided to stock some of my things like comics and t-shirts etc. Hopefully some of my stuff will sell.
Here is the website link to the shop: www.likneon.com and here is where to find the shop: 106 Sclater Street, E1 6HR

The Late Late Breakfast Show Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th is meant to be an unlucky day, but it was really lucky for me. I got take part on Tracey Moberly's show broadcast live from the Foundry on Resonance 104.4fm. It was a proper random panel of interesting people including a radical priest who set up Housmans radical book sellers (Their having their 50th anniversary celebration tomorrow night), Viv Albertine from The Slits and John Sinclair, can't remember the other people's names. I talked about the zine friendly event, zines/comics and a bit about the Alternative Press. It was my 1st time ever on a live radio show and was kind of nervous, but it was good fun and got to hang out with all the people evolved over some lunch. So I had a proper random, but fun day. Many thanks to everyone at the Foundry.

Update on the 18/11/09

I now have a link where the radio show can be heard and pictures can be seen. My bit is from 46mins.

The comic wall at Comica Comiket 2009 ICA

Comica Comiket November 2009 Photobucket Comica Comiket November 2009 Comica Comiket November 2009 Comica Comiket November 2009 Comica Comiket November 2009

The Comica event was full of lots of cool people,comics and things happening including a comic wall organised Gareth Brookes. He had a really cool idea of getting people to interact and take part in the day's event. Here is my attempt in trying to explain it: He drew a whole load of boxes on paper attached to the wall leading up to the event. The boxes were then numbered. Then he cut up statements from a well known graphic novel numbered them and with the help of Jimi gave them out to people. Then people would have to interpret the statement onto by drawing in the box which matched the statement. As the day went on and the m ore boxes drawn in, the easy it was to work out which graphic novel the statements were taking from. If you still don't get it, check out the pictures I took on the day here: Link
