the interns at Laydeez Do Comics

A big thank-you to Nicola Streeten and Sarah Lightman for hosting londonprintstudio Comics Collective at their comics forum, Laydeez Do Comics, on the first Monday of this month! The comics interns got to talk about their work as well as the comics internship as a whole and the upcoming exhibition. We also got to bring along some of our workshop participants, too. 
A little entry is now up on their blog reporting on the talk we did there, (thanks to Robin Barnard). 
Thanks also to Karrie for the photos, in spite of the dark!

Lily's Belgium catch-up post

A little catch-up post to add my comic reporting on November's Brussels trip to the mix.
At Strip Turnhout festival Merlin, Abe and me had coffee with the lovely Rachid Alid of FIBDA (Festival Internationale de la Bande Dessinee d'Alger, or the Algerian International comics festival), who gave us an anthology of work by young Algerian comics creators. We were lucky to meet people from the international comics scene - including Shamisa's classmates in Bande Dessinee Studies at Sint-Lukas university in Brussels. 

A big thankyou to John Lyon's Charity for providing us with the opportunity to travel to Belgium and spread the LPS Comics Collective love...Thanks also to Karrie and Nadia of londonprintstudio for accompanying us - we home you had as good a time as we did!
