AltComics Festival in Malmö in November and then the day I get back from that, I have to go straight up to Leeds for Thought Bubble where I've been asked to present a paper at their Academic Conference just before the festival itself. I was at the Comica event yesterday and as well as getting to hang out with some lovely people, I got to chat with the very nice Paul Gravett, who gave me some excellent tips for The Lengths, so I'm feeling good about where it's heading now. Saturday night was a performance at Duckie with Jay Hirst where we let people record bespoke news. That was fun, but the best surprise of the night was someone coming up to me and saying, "Didn't you used to have red hair and a spiky rubber bag?" We were at art school in Norwich at the same time! Amazing. Phew. I need a break!
