Post-Wonderlands Post

Est Johnson, Sara Dunkerton, Matt Gibbs and me!

Improper Books had a fab time at Wonderlands Graphic Novel Expo this past weekend! We loved chatting with everyone and it was great to see our colouring table being enjoyed by children and adults alike!

Matt and I talked on the first panel of the day about YA. Here we are alongside the wonderful Sandra and John from Metaphrog, Philippa Rice, Paul Register and Dr Mel Gibson:

It was great to see some familiar convention faces and meet some new ones! I also got a visit from my Aunt and Uncle and an old friend of mine who I haven't seen in years, which was an extra treat! :)

I hope Wonderlands becomes an annual event which will no doubt continue to grow year on year. We all feel very lucky to have been there at the very beginning.

Some random little profile doodles on the train home. Rediscovering my brush pen, we've never really seen eye-to-eye,

Thanks very much to Brian and Mary Talbot for inviting us and to the organisers and volunteers for such a well organised event (especially Hannah Matterson, who is fab!). Thanks also to everyone who stopped by and bought our books! We hope you enjoy them.

I just have to include this wonderful drawing of the Night Post cover by the talented Lucy! I met her, her Mum Jennifer and her equally talented big brother Jamie at the con on Saturday. She was kind enough to send me this yesterday. She worked on it for 2 days! Well done Lucy! :)
