This weekend I found time for something I didn’t think I could squeeze in, but I’m so thankful my sister sweetly insisted this would be good for me 😀
And indeed, after 5 hours here we came up with some fantastic ideas for a new venture… But that aside for now, here’s a tiny glimpse of the London Comic Con 2016, May edition!!  Make sure you book for October and get your alter ego costume started!

I fell in love with Silver Surfer at 8 years old and I still wait for him!… wonder if he like LEDs, EBM and torch-working…hmmmm

 

a different kind of "BPM" for me this weekend. Lots of artists on their own stands selling their drawing and prints. Wonderful to see!

And of course, no trip anywhere is complete without a fridge magnet at the very least, but we did better than that: Feeling more human than human, the very cool Nexus-6 mugs are PERFECT for my strong coffee every morning.

And what bedtime is complete without a graphics novel and a hug with Toothless?!  Good dream ingredients, like Silver Surfer (for whom I dedicate this song and for his surfboard flights, this one) 😉

And I almost forgot to mention one of the reasons I went to Comic Con; the beautiful marker pens from Chameleon… no ordinary ink technology, but I’ll demo these soon!

we returned with Comic Con goodies!

Not quite related to Comic Con, but unavoidable to see the transformation of this side of the City as you arrive/depart the exhibition centre. Who knows how this will look the next time I visit ExCel!
