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 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

Sunday 1st of November I was at the Handmade & Bound event helping out on the Alternative Press communal table. (Also had some of my work on display). It was good clean fun and lost of interesting home-made books, comics, zines and even a guy who had his own home made and caned goats cheese. Feeling really inspired now.
