The Thought Bubble convention was a blast. I got to hang out with my mate Andy Sykes of http://www.hexjibber.com/ while he wrestled with the responsibilities of super stardom. I also got to check the sketching spotlight JOCK AKA Mark Simpson as well as PIA GUERRA who were both on top form. Dr Simpo gave a talk on Dandy: The Rise an Fall of a National Institution which was fun and informative with lively discussion at the end.
Most importantly I got to chat with a number of artists, editors and Marketing Managers. I would recommend this festival to anyone in, wanting to break in or avidly reading content created by, the comics industry.
