Aside form organising my own Art and Illustration convention (Robot Con) I am also a art of the Sheffield Comics network. The Network was set up by Bambos Georgiou (Inker on Titan comics Anno Dracula and one of the creators behind Aces Weekly). It's intention is to bring fans and creators of comics and illustration together on a monthly basis to talk shop, socialise and work on projects together.
Currently in the works is a newspaper sized comic anthology utilising the talent in the group and the connections we have made.
There is also the first ever Sheffield Micro Comic Con. A small group of us will be taking over a local pub to sell, swap, and chat to anyone who wishes to come along. There are a number of great guests involved and I will even have some 'Zines' to sell. My Zines, based on my reviews, will be a printed version of the two blogs on the Comic Cut Down site. The Zines came first as an idea and I created a number of mock ups with a collection of prints to follow. But as I was producing the printed copies, the idea for Comic Cut Down, as a web site, was born.
Therefore I have a number of of actual, physical, Zines to sell which include some of the reviews I have already posted but also a hint at future reviews that may appear, especially in the Pointless Review section.
If you are in or around Sheffield on 2nd December, please pop down to the Gardeners Rest and say "Hi," maybe even buy some wonderful artwork, or the odd Zine.
