This Sunday I will getting up early and making the arduous 15 minute journey from my house to the Exchange Studio in Maidstone to attend Demoncon 5. Demoncon is organised by Graham Beadle, the owner of my local comic shop, the Grinning Demon (in Maidstone), who is quite possibly the friendliest comic shop owner I have ever met and has done a great job of single-handedly (?) organising this family-friendly con for the last few years. I will be bringing along copies of Department of the Peculiar issues 1 and 2, most of my other comics, and copies of Too Much Sex and Violence issues 1, 2 and 3 (#4 is out but I'm afraid I don't have any, so you'll have to ask Rol for a copy). I am also going to spend the next couple of days drawing superhero (and DOTP) sketches to bring along, and will be sketching all day at the event. If you have any requests, let me know. Oh, and my contribution to the raffle will be the original artwork to the Department of the Peculiar Christmas card I drew last year (see below). It's A4 sized, pen and ink on Bristol board, and I somehow managed to draw the whole thing without smudging anything. Also among the 60+ guests attending will be David Frankum (an incredibly good artist) and Andrew Cheverton (writer of West, The Whale House, and more), so you should check them out if you are coming along.
