I was meant to post this on Thursday but I packed my suitcase instead and then I spent Friday running away from lumpy deer and seeing dinosaurs. Really, today deserves its own blog...which will have to wait.
This weekend is the MCM Expo where I've got a table at the Comics Village. Come along and say hello. Actually - here is that dance routine I created for it:
Speaking of winners - there are some special guests at MCM this weekend - Oliver (from Oliver) and Willow (from Willow)! Plus, Lizz and I are doing another game of Dino-Saw-Us - which you have to play.
Oh - but public transport in London appears to be a bit rubbish this weekend. HOORAY!

In other news: I went to see the Professor Layton movie and it was AMAZING! I should probably save my blurb about that for some other time. I'm still super behind on sorting out emails but I have two (!!!) new ideas for new comics. I won't give too much away but one is about a wizard and one is not about a wizard.
Also - it is MCM Expo this weekend! I am buying a new suitcase for it! Also - I made up a dance routine for it. I'll post it up on Thursday. If you come find my stall and do this dance routine then I'll be super impressed!

The third, final and fanciest of my drawings for My Cardboard Life's 300th Fiesta. I hope you like it! There are some *amazing* comics taking part - it's a real opener and I'm really glad I took part.
In other news: Mister Computer needs to go back to Computer Hospital. I called the Computer Medics and they said they'll possibly have to wipe everything - which is a bit sad but I backed up a while ago so phew. Also, I'm still a little sad but I have a plan! It involves a fair few risky things but fingers crossed. I mean, the risky stuff is my backup plan - I'll try a sensible route first and hope for the best.
I'm working on a new mini comic about magic. It won't be ready in time for MCM Expo but it will totally be done for whenever my next event is. OH! And I've got a fun upload coming soon so stay tuned. It has lasers in it!
My Cardboard Life's 300th strip. I did some drawings and didn't want to update until they went live. And now they have! HOORAY!
Here is the first one...

Anyways - I've been miserable. So miserable that someone kindly sent me a "cheer up email," which is the sort of thing I would normally do for other people. So thank you very much Mister Email Sender - I'll write you a proper email later. I've been so miserable that someone told me I've been like a dish cloth - which is pretty miserable.
So! I'm officially taking the bull by the horns and I'm going to try to tackle a few of the things that have been making me sad. I'm going to start eating properly and I'm going to start socialising and I'm not going to drown in all the stuff I need to do. In your face Misery!
If this was a movie and I was a sassy lady character, this would be the moment when I get a makeover and cut my hair.

Anyways. Today is an extra special day for two reasons.
Reason 1 - Mister Computer returned from the Computer Hospital! He appears to be much better and I am typing on him right this minute! I need to spent a lot of time reorganising my files but still... hooray! Welcome back Mister Computer. I
Reason 2 - I've been really sad lately but I had some nice emails and I haven't cried - so that is another special reason in my book.
I need to sit down and start work on a new issue of People I Know - but I'll still be popping by to update drawings here. I'm sorry the last month has been so sporadic. I promise to try much harder at some point this year.

In other news: Oh dear. According to the Thing Website, there won't be any more events in the future.
This is sad because it was the first comic event I had a stall at and I've met some amazing people by doing it for the last three years. I suppose I'll need to branch out a bit more or just organise something. But still, the three Thing anthologies I have (2008 - 2010) are amazing and I'm always super impressed with them. Plus I liked the map so you could see who you were booking a table next to. I don't mean that in a creepy way...it was just useful.
Stop looking at me like that.

Oh! Also, we went to the Portrait Gallery and looked at the sexy Royals. It was pretty amazing and I want a codpiece. A giant codpiece. Possible made of gold?
In other news: Work is kicking my bum but look! A new drawing! This is a little awkward since I might have borrowed the faces from some people and I'm not sure if I should tell them. They aren't in a band though - I just had to plop that to get to that joke. I might make more drawings that pretend to be adverts. I might also get a life. Who knows?

The sad thing is that I didn't know we were allowed to apply for stalls!
EVEN SADDER is that even if I *had* known, I don't think I would have been given a stall. I totally need to up my game. YEAH!
So here's a comic about farting. I made it for a friend who farts. I should start as I mean to go on and all that jazz.
In other news: tomorrow is potentially a pancake day! Wheeeeeeeeeeee.

I did another comic about Ke$ha! Look at how crazy she is. She. Is. Just. WILD!
Also, I had the day off work and someone was nice enough to explain how to update my website from a computer that isn't my own.
I had the day off work because the engineer was going to fix my computer. However, he did all sorts of things involving graphics cards and motherboards and although the computer got better for a little while, it started turning itself off again. It isn't even a year old! So it has to be sent off to Computer Hospital and might not be back for six (!!!!!) weeks.

I'll probably bust out some more Awful Jokes soon. Be prepared.
IN OTHER NEWS: I have been really busy with drawing this weekend. You've got lots of things to look forward to, including (but not limited to):
- Ke$ha being totally wild and out of control
- A dance routine
- Your new favourite band
If you're able to vote in the UK General Election, then do it!

To start with - here are two of the Power Rangers! Someone told me that the Red Ranger is doing naughty movies these days but I can't believe it. He was always so noble!
Today was Free Comic Book Day and I went to Orbital Comics where We Are Words + Pictures were giving out copies of Paper Science 2. I did some drawing and spoke to people I've never spoken to before - which is sort of impressive for me. I also did some drawings - I hope the new people didn't think I was a twat.
My computer is meant to be getting fixed on Wednesday - so I can hopefully start updating the proper site after that.
Enjoy the weekend
