I thought I would put up my little haul from Thought Bubble. What a super convention, although I am now bloody tired and ill, I didn’t have all that much money on me but still managed to spend a lot.
I got to meet Brandon Graham which was one of the highlights of the con for me, (he’s one of my top artist and one of the reason why I got into making my own comics), he was super lovely and spent so much time doing me some drawings, it was chuffin ace!. I asked him if he could draw my paper-armed cyclops monster (Terra-Cota) which I hope would be a little different and what an amazing version of her, I couldn’t be happier. I also painted him a watercolour (as a nerdy thanks) in which he than gave me some original artwork (which blew my mind), so going to get that framed ASAP.
I also picked up Becky and Franks new book which is a gem in the collection, Rob also got me a print of theirs too (I had a hard time choosing which one mind) so went for the red panda.
Also picked up a sloth print and a sticker from John Allison who also drew Rob a really good Frank Zappa, New Noonan from Marc Ellerby, My kickstarted epic of Cat and Meringue By Nich Angell, Amusing Puns by Gemma Correll and two comics by Meredith Gran. Looks like I have a fair bit of reading to do but I can’t wait, I’ve been needing some good books for a while now and these fit the bill perfectly.
It’s been such a good con, Rob came to his first one and he picked up soo much good stuff as well, I am really glad he came to it. Also big ups to Jen/Josh/Rhiannon and Becks my table crew and everyone else who I said hello to, Great con guys!
