The bubble popped

the-bubble-popped

This weekend I attended the Thought Bubble convention. It’s definitely been the best con yet, with an amazing crowd, the usual gang of co-exhibitors and a storming after show party. It’s always nice to make new friends, mostly in the form of Julia, Sarah and Matt who head up Words + Pictures. The girls also drew me this really lovely sketch which will soon be adoring my wall.

I managed to bag a few comics for myself but spent most of the time on my stall and didn’t even see half the exhibition which was a real shame, but I picked up Adam Cadwell’s 2nd collected edition, Lizz Lunney’s new books and a robot zine and photo-story from the Words + Pictures gang.

I didn’t actually get any photos of the stall so here’s one nicked from Sean’s collection:

As per usual I had Mike of Guest Strip Project fame helping out on the stall and we continued with our ninja draw-off tradition, with every sale we did a drawing of a ninja animal or person, with them choosing which they liked the best…here’s some below:

Liz Greenfield swung by and picked up a pink Ninja Bunny.

Anna of Annabisms Ellerbisms fame made this lovely edible treat. I still need to pick up Vol 2 of his delightful comic.
Ninja bunny cake..yum!

More Ninja-things and other random photos from Thought Bubble can be found on my flickr page.

Thanks again to everyone who swung by the stall and said hello, extra thanks to those that bought something or picked up a flyer and there’s dozens of other people I could have also mentioned in this post so sorry for those who missed out on the roll call.

    So far I’ve just felt really bad about ripping open the packet as I didn’t want to damage it…I’m going to have a look/read through of them this week and I’ll let you know.
