My inexplicable career of wandering fortuitously onto comics panels continues in Birmingham at 3pm on Saturday 7th of December at Volume. Birmingham Zine Festival organiser Lizz Lunney and educator/cartoonist Dan Berry have kindly invited me to the event’s Make It Then Tell Everybody panel, where I will be adding a publisher-side perspective as part of a larger comics conversation with the following people:
Philippa Rice – creator of the webcomic My Cardboard Life, Recyclost, Looking Out and many other titles.
Vivane Schwarz – creator of a number of books for children including There Are Cats In This Book, There Are No Cats In This Book and Welcome To Your Awesome Robot.
Lisa Wood – director of the Thought Bubble festival in Leeds
If you’re in Birmingham you must come and see me at this! I’m looking forward to the panel! Also I’ll be at the book fair all day on Friday and Saturday. I can’t wait to see the new Birmingham Library. I’ve heard it’s wonderful.
