Attended the 2D con in Northern Ireland last week and as usual it was fantastic, great hosts, enthusiastic guests, huge turnout, and a handful of us Micks. Hearty thanks to con organiser Dave Campbell who once again pulled out all the stops to make us feel welcome and looked after.
Here's one of many, many drawings of Angel and Spike that I churned out over the course of the con. They were all pretty quick and loose pics but that's the way its gotta be when so many kids are looking for sketches. Actually, that's the best thing about this particular con, the guests are predominantly children, and they're so excited and enthusiastic. The Northern Ireland Arts Board funds the event and encourages schoolkids to attend free of charge, so there's always a great, youthful vibe about the place.

This coming wed/thurs sees the release of Angel: Not Fade Away 2. I was pretty happy with how the art came out in these issues, hope you guys can pick it up and let me know what ye think. Also happy was I with the cover for this issue, which was an image I'd had in my head for some time and one of those rare instances where the final image on paper came halfway close to resembling the mental version.
24 degrees of beautiful sunshine here in Ireland right now, and 2D con this weekend too.
Should be a good week.
