Edinburgh Book Festival 2008.

I will be appearing at an interview session as part of the Edinburgh Book Festival 2008 on Friday August 15th. Event starts at 4.30pm and lasts an hour and there will be a sketching and signing opportunity afterwards in the bookshop area. Seats are free but limited so you would be best to get in touch with the organisers quickly to guarantee a place. Details are to be found here.

The interviewed will be conducted by Hanna Sommerseth and focus mainly on Dare and Vertigo work. We will also cover most of the last twenty years of my career and there will be a Q&A for any attendees wishng to hear some industry gossip. Should be fun and I hope to see you there.

This was a last minute event and doesn't show in the main printed programme. You will have to search the Edinburgh Book Festival site to confirm details.

Singapore Toy and Comic Convention 2008 photos.

A major success! The Singapore Toy and Comic Convention 2008 had a massive turnout by friendly and enthusiastic fans from all over Asia and from as far as Australia too. Mhairi and I had an amazing time and the whole experience was one we won't forget. We are already planning to return to Singapore next year and hope to spend a few more days around the event to enjoy the rest of the country.

Many thanks to everyone who helped out from Play Imaginative. Denise, Darren, Liyanna and Daphne who kept the convention running smoothly. To Winston and Bernard for keeping us going and getting us to the right place at the right time (almost! ;) To Mr Chang and his wife, and Richard the curator at the Mint Toy Museum for being the most gracious of hosts. The toy collection was very inspiring and the Dare section was impressive! Thanks also to Neil, Spencer, Jimmy, King Lee and Ben, and to everyone we met in Singapore, it was a great event! Here's to next year!
