I’ve returned from my three day stint at the MCM Comic Expo in London. Was my first time attending and really enjoyed the atmosphere and being surrounded by so many people into he same kinda stuff as me. As I was working there I didn’t have much chance to properly check everything out, but managed to chat with lots of cool people and fellow artists, play around with some new products and hope to attend with Wacom again or perhaps set myself up a stall in the artists alley? 🙂
Anime Girl - Something I doodled over the weekend. I was experimenting with different drawing styles again and after this one, I finally decided to give up on my Edding 1800 profipens. I’ve been using them to ink for a while, but the ink flow sucks, they’re not true black and they generally seem too dry to draw a consistent non-grainy line. I want to find a new set of super fine line-line pens which work for me. Suggestions welcome!
Generic girl face - doodled the face over the weekend and chucked in a few digital tones on top.
Manga Guy - something I doodled over the weekend.
It was my first time attending a convention-like event at the National Space Centre as an artist. I probably wouldn’t have considered it had I not been invited but ‘twas a cool experience and was really nice to meet fellow manga inspired artists and fans alike.
I spent most of my time in the Artists Alley along with talented artists: Chie Kutsuwada, Laura Watton-Davies, Jodie Azhar, Emma Vieceli and Dock, selling postcard prints of some of the character pin-ups I’d worked on and chatting to fans about what I do and art-related things.
I’ll probably attend a few more similar events in the future to get a greater feel for the whole con-going experience and see how they compare 🙂

This was a quick character composition I put together for the Japanorama Event. Not sure if it will end up being used or not?
