We’re really looking forward to attending Nottingham Comic Con tomorrow.
There seems to be lots of new comic cons springing up all over the country, throughout the year.
This is Nottingham’s second year. Last year the event was called Nerd Fest, this year the organisers have gone with a new name and a much bigger event!
1000 people are expected to visit the con this year and Bee Toons are really pleased to be invited to be guests.
Steve will be doing a Q+A panel along with fellow Beano scribbler, Laura Howell (Tricky Dicky and Les Pretend) and The Phoenix’s, Gary Northfield (Gary’s Garden, Derek the Sheep). So come armed with lots of questions!
We love the emphasis on this being a family event and it’s cool to see us humour cartoonists and kids comics in general get a bit of recognition on the convention scene. We will have our first self published book, Yuk Yuk McCluck’s Activity Book available to buy on the day, it’s perfect for the little uns! Colouring, puzzles and comics by hot new cartoonist Yuk Yuk!
Steve will have sketches for sale and will be sketching on request. We’re also taking orders for commission artwork for Christmas. Steve will also have some of his drawings from the Beano on display.
So pop along and say hello, should be a fun day!
