Upcoming shows: Thought Bubble and MCM London

2018 has been a little less hectic for shows, with certain events like DIY Cultures taking a break, but this Autumn you can find me at two of the UK's largest events.

I'm back for my sixth visit to Leeds' Thought Bubble Festival. This year I'll be in the big  ComiXology Marquee, once again tabling with Dom McKenzie

And a month later, I'm at MCM's London Comic Con, having also exhibited at the May show this year.

Hopefully I'll get to meet you at one of these events, and if you can't make it, please do find me online (Instagram, Twitter) or take a look at my books over at!

Several of us will be there with a great range of books, prints, postcards, original art and more (you can even get your hands on this handsome Blop Enamel Pin there too!)

It's free to get in, and there's lots of great names from the world of illustration. What are you waiting for? -mark the date in your diary now.
