Awesome Comics Podcast – the process sessions

Just saw this tweet go past on my timeline, and that reminded me. The guys were kind enough to ask me onto the podcast back in August 2019 (Episode 214) as part of their Comic Making Process sessions – episodes 213 – 219 over on podbean etc.

If you are into comics, (particularly if you make them and are based here in the UK) and haven’t heard of the The Awesome Comics Podcast, you really need to check them out. Loads of great critique and advice, across a wide range of comics subjects, styles and genres.
Just be careful if listening with your favourite old aunt, she might not be prepared for some of the colloquial language.

There’s also a great Facebook group, again with tonnes of advice, support and a real sense of community for UK comics creators and enthusiasts. Go check it out.

Hull & Bridlington Comic Con, plus Radio!

I was fortunate this year to be asked to speak live on Kofi Smiles‘* No Filter show @RadioHumberside about Comics and Social Media (if you missed it ) with Lee-Ann Williams from @HullComicCon and Artist/Illustrator Jemma Klein, which in turn led #IronShodApeComics being asked to guest at Hull Comic Con and later Bridlington Comic Con, which was great!

*Kofi’s a big fan of comics if you hadn’t guessed – check out his Comic Box Rumble podcast here.

So, I got to speak on panels at each Con’ (the stage at Brid Spa adding to the fun there) with the likes of Russ Payne, Russ Leach, JAKeAbbie Stabby, Lee Bradley and Rachael Smith, and of course meet a bunch of people* at both events, chatting about comics, art, art education and drawing etc, as well as selling a few comics and sketchbooks etc.

Hey, and if you are reading this and your the attendee who forgot to take their books away with you, please text me your address – you have my card – and I’ll post the signed books out to you, just put your name in the text okay. Cheers.

Anyway, you can find some links to my twitter threads from the day below. Hull Comic Con was an amazing Venue as it was partly held in Trinity Church, crazy.

And then at Bridlington… at the equally amazing Brid’ Spa.

So thanks again to Steve, Lee-Ann and everyone involved at both venues, including all the volunteers who made it such a great day for everyone. I’d definitely love to part of next years events.
