Blog of a veggie lady who can't stay in one place for too long, loves to dumpster dive, loves to craft and can rant about feminism for hours! Just little notes and photos from my travels and the qwirky, fun, arty and ridiculous things I've seen! (and things I've found in bins.)
My girlfriend Kim is rad and has been making hand screen printed christmas cards of the best christmas film of all time, Die Hard. They’re, like, £2.50 each so you should totally go and buy them all so we can afford to buy our pet rabbit christmas jumpers and the like. Y’know, the kind of mad shit you buy when you’re rich.
Also it would be awesome if you just checked out her shop because it is full of ridiculous and cool screen printed things.
Rob is cute =] This is what I’ve been doing today! I also have Fight Club and Blink 182 themed ones!
One of my favourite people at Thought Bubble was the ridiculously lovely person who bought a Badass Feminist Killjoy patch off me, then said how she had some feminist stickers but she was scared of putting them on her table incase it alienated people, and after seeing my patches said she would! The next day she came back, brought me some of her stickers then brought all of her friends over! She was so so nice! I couldn’t find her stall though, which sucked, there were so many stalls!
But point being, how ace are these stickers?! I’ve got another one too!
Someone also bought a badass feminist killjoy patch because they said there wasn’t enough of that at comic fairs =]
So today was the first day of the convention part of Thought Bubble Sequential Art Festival in Leeds, and it was my first time having a stall there! I’ve been to Thought Bubble before and always wanted to have a pitch, but this is the first year I’ve had the time/funds to do it.
I’m so glad I did! I’ve had a brilliant time! It had a fantastic vibe to it. I met some really wonderful people, saw some very impressive cosplay (the guy with dressed as Jake with BMO with a DIGITAL FACE was amazing) and just generally had a great laugh. Plus I was next to my fabulous friend Will who’s an editor for new published Borderline Press and has recently brought out Zombre: a compilation of 20 different wonderfully unique tales of the undead.
Really looking forward to tomorrow! If you happen to be coming along, I’m in the Allied London Hall on table 33, and I would love to chat to you! I’m also looking forward to having a good wander round tomorrow, I’ve been eyeing up some things to buy, like a wonderful patch from Lizz Lunney, Katie Green's new graphic novel and some bits from Gemma Correll. (and I'm sure much more.)
What I’ve been up to today! Now I am exhausted.
You believe men are created to worship women?
Care to elaborate anon? As a matter of fact I don’t and don’t believe I’ve even vaguely eluded to this on my blog.
I think Liz Lemon is just ace. So I’ve been doing a lot of screen prints based on her! I’m finally getting my act together and putting things on Etsy, so these will be my first listing in a good while! Available here!
So this is what I’ve been doing lately!
I miss stuff like this happening on a regular basis.
I’m in a right grump this eve. I miss people lots yet decided not to go out and socialise. I’m a right spoon.
I WAS trying to watch The Simpsons. Now I’m just getting licked in the face.
I’m having a whole load of fun in the south catching up with my family and sitting in the sunshine, and I don’t want to go back north and be all busy and frantic again (few VERY BUSY weeks on the way), but at least I get to squeeze the hell out of these two babez =]
