Mac Pow 2019

Maccpow! I maccwon!!

So here I am again, this time following a fun day out in Macclesfield, and it was fun, a great day of meeting people I had met last year and catching up with lovely people I already knew.
So I had a great end table where I managed to get my table looking lovely and full, and bonus trousers didn’t rip this time!

The day went very fast and Leaf sold really well I think this was more because the day was very much more a family event, it was interesting to see how different it was to Oldham in what I sold, so going forward I’ll definitely be able to arrange my table more to sell for the customers that turn up to each event! I just need another book out for next year because I had repeat customers! This was a new and terrifyingly brilliant area for me and thankfully I have a good memory for faces so recognised people coming back to see me! I’m famous now......right?

Anyhow this is just a quick update to let you all know I’m not dead, now back to the graphic novel....only another 145 pages to go.....

Send help and chocolate!

What am I up to!?

So how’s it been going Nikki? I’m sure you are all asking that, along with, gosh it’s been sooooo long since you posted anything!
And yes you are right, I’m awfully bad at this! But bare with me I will get better at this........probably!
So what have I been up to?
Well I’m taking on the humongous challenge of drawing my first graphic novel, which is daunting but I’m finding it fun if I just take it one page at a time, and not worry that I have at least another 100 odd pages to do!
Early snippet from my new book

But Nikki what is it about?
Well I’ve decided to look at my life, coz you know do stuff you know about! I was brought up in a zoo in a little village so thought I’d look at my different upbringing, with silly stories, information about different natural things, a look at the history of the zoo I grew up within and then tackling the serious issue of bullying with hopefully some useful links for people that maybe suffering the same thing right now. So just a small challenge then!
But also at the moment I’m getting ready for Maccpow in Macclesfield in a couple of weeks, and whipping up some more art for that, and.....yes there’s more....getting ideas together for the windows trail for this years Lakes International Comic Art Festival.....phew!

So everything is go go go!
See you soon
