Post Edinburgh post

Here’s a link to a short piece I wrote for the Cape Graphic Novels Tumblr page about my recent very enjoyable experience being a guest at this year’s Stripped festival, part of The Edinburgh Book Festival, plus a photo of some shady characters masquerading as 2000AD contributors. That’s water by way, for the re-hydration purposes.

I’m hosting a Zom-B drawing workshop from 18.30-19.30 on Friday the 23rd giving tips and tricks to budding artists on drawing zombies and the living dead (well, I just have to look in the mirror most days, but you kids might need some insiders knowledge) and talking about Montague Terrace later that evening from 20.30-21.30, where I’ll be sharing the stage with Roger Gibson, author of the Harker book series.

Then on the Sunday at 15.00, I’ll be joining a panel along with Dan Abnett to discuss the past, present and future of 2000AD.

There’s a whole host of amazing talent taking part throughout the festival. To find out more and book tickets in advance, check out the Edinburgh Book Festival site.

Pleece Brothers at Cartoon County Tonight!

mt

For our legion(s) of fan(s), exciting news! Me and baby Bro, Gary, will be discussing our new(ish) graphic novel, Montague Terrace live, in person, this Monday 3rd June with Resonance FM‘s own Alex Fitch at this Monday’s Cartoon County meeting, upstairs at the Cricketers Pub in the heart of Brighton’s Laines, 7.30 p.m. onwards.

These meetings are legend amongst the South Coast’s comics community, often a hotbed of discussion, anecdotes and rare glimpses of original art from some of the best practitioners in the biz. For some reason, Comics, sorry, sequential art legend David Lloyd and Myriad Books own Corinne Pearlman have seen fit to invite us Pleeces back after our last notorious outing in the Greene Room.

We’ll be talking Monty T, The Great (unseen?) Unwashed and all about current, future and past stuff, surrounded by bonhomie and quaintly cut sandwiches washed down with beer.
