The londonprintstudio comics collective shared a table together at COMIKET, organised by Paul Gravett. We featured all of our wonderful and diverse work, ranging from comics books, zines, prints, badges and so much more. Unfortunately, Merlin was feeling unwell and couldn't make it, but we really hope to attend another convention/event with her next time, the whole entourage!
We also got to meet the previous interns, William Goldsmith who was supporting the Jonathan Cape table, Joe Kelly with his eye catching screen prints and the "Graphic short story" winner, Isabel Greenberg!
The event was more intimate/comics focused than other cons that I have attended. I definitely recommend any comic lovers to attend the next COMIKET! It's a wonderful atmosphere to network or just to meet your favourite comics artists, with signings occurring all over the venue.
The highlight was most definitely seeing all the amazing comics artists draw LIVE in the parade~ such as Luke Pearson, Warren Pleece, Posy Simmonds and our loveable Karrie Fransman.
Our table were still in awe over Frederik Peeters. He was so hardcore, drawing an intricate perspective piece with ink brush pens, with absolutely no penciling...! Brecht Evens amazed us all by drawing the venue in colourful inks...!
Another vulnerable comics strip by our Abe~! Lily and Jade journeyed to Thought Bubble over the weekend, another great comic convention, held in Leeds...! To read about Jade's adventures, hop over to her blog.
