In 2011, I made a personal appearance at Orbital Comics in London as part of their "Two Pauls" evening. The idea for the event was that two creators called Paul at opposing ends of the comics-creating spectrum would talk about their experiences in the field. At one end, there was professional and highly regarded writer Paul Cornell and at the other, there was me. I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was a great success and yet a second "Two Pauls" evening featuring two more Pauls talking about making comics never occurred. 

At the top is a drawing I did to promote the event. Considering that I had never seen Paul in the flesh before, I think he was very gracious about my representation of him. Underneath is a quick sketch I drew for Orbital. To my delight, it seemed to be on their shop wall for a long time after.

There's No Time Like The Present Updates

Item: After skipping a year, Caption, Britain's longest running comic festival, is back this weekend, this time in a brand new location in Coventry. I'm delighted to be able to tell you that after being a semi-regular attendee since it started in the early 90s, I am at last a guest along with other comic creators such as Leah Moore, John ReppionHunt EmersonAl Davison and Paul Duffield. If you're Coventry, near to Coventry or miles away from Coventry, please drop by, especially on Sunday afternoon at 1:15 PM when I will be in conversation with Alex Fitch.

Item: The final apart of my six part interview with Paul Gravett has been posted to the Escape Books Website. You can read it here, if you wish.
