We had a fair few visitors yesterday, all eager to talk comics with Kristyna and myself. Sadly the school workshops we had planned this week fell through, but it’s still been a pleasure to chat to people about what we’re up to when they’ve popped in.
Yesterday’s search for an interesting table set up was a success – drop by the Thought Bubble Convention to see it in action – and Kristyna’s work on character designs continued well into the evening. The comic’s coming along splendidly.
On top of that I’ve been gearing up for the academic conference tonight, gathering my thoughts on materiality in comics, the future of comics and what more I can do as a writer and publisher to achieve that future. Lofty ambitions and subjects for a panel, sure, but I have faith that Tim Dant and Tom Humberstone can take us there.
This residency has been five fabulous days. Being given the opportunity to think about comics and stories without anything else to bother me has been a treat, to say the least. Huge thanks to Lisa and Clark from Thought Bubble for having us, and to Nabil and the Travelling Man crew for making our time out of the library so much fun.
You’ll see our comic in next year’s Thought Bubble Anthology, although if I’m very very lucky I might get a chance to work with Kristyna at some point before then.
Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you on the convention floor!
