Sunderland Comic Con Pictures February 24, 2015 13:44

Hi to everyone we met at the inaugural Sunderland Comic con this weekend. It was a first for us too, our first ever evnt like this, and we loved it!

Feedback from customers was lovely and really positive on our stall and products, even the Beano and Judge Dredd artists gave us great feedback on our badge frames (where we've recycled some of their art into something 'a bit different'), even being good enough to sign some pictures featuring their art.

It was a great opportunity to meet and chat to some incredible talent and and buy signed comics/books while you have the chance, I picked up a signed hardback 'RazorJack' by John Higgins. One of our customers couldn't decide whether to buy a framed Judge Dredd badge picture, they ended up buying it and getting it signed by Dredd artists John Higgins and John Wagner! I later did the same getting a frame signed by John Higgins and a Beano frame signed by Nigel Parkinson. An opportunity you can't turn down so worth asking... shy bairns get nowt! :)

Also shown on pics, Asia Alfasi and Neil Slorance who produce stunning work - Asia holds cartoon workshops for schools and groups, worth checking her page out.

My two neighbours on Sunday, Gary Bainbridge and Jack Fallows who had a canny day knocking out some great artwork, Jack doing some fantastic pictures of visitors in whatever style they wanted, sitting on a unicorn, part eel/part human or Harry Potter meets Dr Who, and making it look so easy in the process.

Some of the artists also took lessons in the activity area, learning to draw Beano characters (Nigel Parkinson), How to Draw your Dragon ( and more Gareth K Vile and Lee Robinson) including creating characters and story writing. Nice to see Hit Girl taking some time out using the pencil instead of the sword.

The Cosplay fans were out in Force (literally) and having a great time, some amazing costumes...

Thanks to everyone who took part, visited and the organisers and volunteers who made the weekend a success, looking forward to my second comic con (although I don't know where it will be yet - let me know if you know of any good events for our stall).

Bye for now!


Repro retro Marvel and DC covers! January 24, 2015 22:48

We have a fantastic range of reproduction comic covers from both Marvel and DC, from 1st edition Batman and his Boy Wonder to the first appearance of Ghostrider and the Fantastic Four.

The images we use here will not do justice to the print quality, depth of colour and impact of these images when mounted and framed, they are really striking.

We have mounted prints available via our online shop and also canvas prints in medium and extra large scale available on our stand at Tynemouth Market. Check them out whilst we still have them!


Appearing at Sunderland Comic Con - February 21st and 22nd January 24, 2015 08:53
