Tapestry Goes West: Sunday 4 July 2010

This Sunday I will be taking part in this event by having my comics and stuff exhibited along with other small press friends in the Alternative press gazebo. (Hopefully we can work out how to set it up) Here is some more info: Barry Stillwell who organises Tapestry at St Aloysius has arranged for an Alternative Press area at the upcoming Tapestry Goes West all day music festival in July. Small pressers will be welcomed to sell their work and join the area, as well as run workshops and add their work to the reading area and festivalzine library! Check it out and buy tickets here

Baba t-shirt poster

Here is a cheesy poster I made in an attempt to shift some of my Baba T-shirts, I still have a load of large ones, but no large people to sell to. Model: Gareth Brookes

Zine Symposium sucess

Last Saturday I was with the Alternative Press at the London Zine Symposium. It was a really good day. I launched my new comic "Gissa Job" which went down really well, I shifted around 25 copies of it and also did a few swaps (including a swap for a mini zine which is only 3cm by 3cm by Fernanda meireles from Portugal). 1st time I've left an event and done that well, plus I meet lots of cool people with cool work. I even got a really nice mention by a lady called Philipa Law on her blog, so thought I would return the favour.

I also managed to get to go to some of the talks where I got to meet the lovely Jossie Long (cool comedian). She is genuinely really nice and makes really funny zines, if anyone is interested in downloadi
ng some of her zines for free click here. Here are some pictures from the day taken by Noriko Onohara.
