I arrived at the British Museum first, after a harrowing tale of daring and adventure through the London underground. So I took photos to while away the time. Lag arrived 5 minutes later. From the way he was dressed I could tell he'd also had many hair-raising adventures along the way.

Image

Mr.Bob turned up next, then Ping and Shinedog. Eventually the whole gang arrived.

Image

Except for Al of Poisoned Minds (keenspot). After a while he phoned Lag and turned out to be the person sat on the wall opposite us.
And that was us meeting up. I won't do the con because I don't have any photos to illustrate it.

Pictures!

There's still videos and report and sketches coming up... stay tuned.

I actually met ShineDog the night before the con, he was staying in a hotel near my place so since I knew the way to the Museum and he didn't, we met up and walked there together.

Bob was instantly recognisable. I almost didn't recognise Lag because he changed his hair (but the hat was distinctive). War was also pretty easy to recognise!

Komi and John showed up afterwards. We were actually debating whether the guy sitting on the wall opposite us was Al, but we were being so obviously us (Keenspace hats, handling out samplers, taking photos), we thought he couldn't be because no one could miss us!

However, he was!

We met Gianna at the Con and I am ashamed to say I have no still pictures of her (only videos which I will try and put up later). She told us they recognised us by our drawing styles!

I did the 24 minute comic thing, and I'll scan it and put it up later... Yes I was cheeky enough to put in a cameo. I am shameless.

Next: Sketchbooks!

Hey, someone actually remembers my name! (I'm "boyfriend") It was cool meeting all the guys whose comics I've read in person - even if it meant staying up for like, 40 hours or something ridiculous.

Thanks for the sketchbook! (scans to follow)

You'd better be grateful! A lot of blood and sweat and red crayola went into making you that professional-standard stationary item!

BIG FAT GIGANTO GALLERY! - Too much trouble to set up new code for a whole new gallery with pretty colours so I just posted 'em all up in mine. Drab, dreary, and LAGtheModellery, but it works.

Feel free to comment in the gallery. If you don't want me posting your pictures / sketchbook scans, just tell me and I'll take 'em down.

Now! Back to commenting. Wop wop wop.

No photos till I get my film to the shops, but here's what was in my sketchpad!

Image
Caricatures of the gang. I inked this on the train home. Missing - Ping because she was doing the 24 minute comic, and Gianna cuz she hadn't arrived yet.

Image
War conveying silent violence

Image
Lag Drawing me as a catboy!! A catboy!

Image
A lot of yelling

Image
Ping BLATANTLY plugging her comic.

Image
This is terrifying

As is this. Worse still is you see it as the cat in the hat

You ought to have brought badger shirts like I said! Or if not, kenya ones.

Would have made you a rich man!

And then we could have had an iron-man badger dance contest on stage!
Lyrics and instrumentals done by the real Weebl and Bob!

That would have been awesome.

It was mr.madsen from little-gamers, but apparantly, the guy was just a tad nervous so his attempt at humor might have come over as way too serious.
