The day after the Gary’s Garden Launch party…

Another video diary. Here I get to talk about Gary Northfield, Sarah McIntyre, Philip Reeve, David O’Connell and Pirate George. And there’s even an appearance by Milo the cat. So, it was the launch of Gary’s Garden up at the Bookseller Crow in Crystal Palace

Pop-Up 2012 is go!

I can’t believe it’s a year since the last one, but the excellent Dylan Calder has been busy again. Pop-Up is a super children’s festival that gets really involved with the community. Taking place over the 30th June and 1st July in Kings Cross, North London, it’s got some great things lined up.

The highlights would have to be the Comics Big Top of Awesome, starring some outrageously talented folk, and Marcus Sedgwick‘s My Swordhand is Singing tent.

Not to be missed, surely?!

Having a comics artist in your house (the super Gary Northfield) means you get pavement art in your garden!

Old Fossils Retirement Home

I was asked to do something with the wonderful Gary Northfield for our local Crystal Palace magazine, called the Transmitter. Of course, we couldn’t say ‘no’, as we love them so!

So… taking the Palace’s dinosaur pedigree, and Gary’s skill at drawing them, we came up with the Old Fossils Retirement Home comic. Here’s the first panel, and to read the rest you’ll have to get yourselves down to South London in about a month’s time and find a copy. The Bookseller Crow independent bookshop always has them on display!
