Festivals Galore

If you can look closely at this photo you can just make out Sarah McIntyre and myself in the middle, drawing Goblins and Monsters for an audience of about 600 people at the Royal Festival hall on Sunday, as part of the Imagine Festival. We had a great time, and hopefully the audience did too; we certainly met a lot of keen young comics artists and world builders. Sarah has already blogged about it in more detail here, and if you're near central London the festival continues until the 24th February and features lots of great writers and illustrators.

And our next festival appearance is at Animated Exeter this coming Saturday! We'll be doing a comics jam and I'll be talking a bit about The Exeter Riddles, a short story I wrote for Animated Exeter, and which they've had bound as a very lovely little hardback book, available from the Exeter branches of Waterstones.  Here's a little piece about it by Martin Chilton, from the Telegraph website last week (thanks Martin!).

The a limited edition handbound copies look wonderful, and are being auctioned in aid of the charity Literature Works.  And as with the Imagine Festival. Animated Exeter runs all through this half term week, and features lots of workshops and screenings: here's the full programme.
