Experience of Smudge Comics Arts Expo 2014

Related Posts: Experience of SPX 2013 and Experience of APE 2013.


Smudge was an interesting experience. Firstly, it was held in a very lovely space in the Artisphere. And, because it was only one day (rather than the usual two), it was pretty crowded throughout the whole event. The one thing that drove me crazy though was that they played soundtrack music consisting primarily of Darth Vader’s theme for most of the day for no apparent reason. But overall I met some nice people who I’ll most likely see again at SPX in September and discovered that there’s a lot of interest in Scared Stiff. :)

    My feck, woman. It all looks fantastic – keep at it. If I was a super rich talent spotter, I’d go for this stall. PLUS, I’d pick up Shia Lee Beef. H’e z a brillaitn thesp. innit

    Whoops, no idea what happened there. Are you on Google+, by the way? How about StumbleUpon? Add yourself, madam, you have skill to promote. Yo. Bling. Innit. Where am I?

      You are ridiculous, Mr. Wapojif! :)

      My family calls him “The Shy Beef.”

      I really should figure out Google+ and StumbleUpon — I think I have accounts, but I haven’t quite mastered them yet.

    Sorry, I wasn’t being facetious. I only browse such events, but with your stall I would actually stop and go, “Do you speak to English people? Good. You’re not sexist. I also live next to Wales, is this a problem? Excellent, you’re not homophobic. Great, can I buy the doll? 1p isn’t enough? What’s your problem!?!?”

    In all seriousness – it all looks amazing. I’ve written a book and I’ve barely tried to publish it, but I see your work and icy inspiration. My marketing plan is to beat people up in the streets of Manchester.

      There are still plenty of Fleas to go around, but someone bought one at Smudge to go with his alligator stuffed animals on his office’s green wall (I did not make that up, seriously).
