This weekend, Daz and I had a swell outing in Cheltenham for True Believers 2017, where we were absolutely stoked to have our beautiful book – A Rum Run Awry – for sale, along with tons of Daz’s latest prints and pieces of artwork.
As ever, it was a day fuelled by coffee, muffins and the delightful people who stopped by our stand to chat. (UPDATE: And, it turns out, to give our book glowing reviews on their websites – hooray!)
Conventions aren’t easy. They just aren’t: 06:00 starts, hours of driving, long days in large deafening fluorescent-lit auditoriums, terrible food and expensive coffee. NEVERTHELESS – it is ALWAYS entirely worth it to get to meet a whole bunch of new people, and get to ramble about our creations all day.
But as great as making new friends is, the best part is seeing old ones – both exhibitors and attendees who we recognise from previous conventions. (We don’t ALWAYS recognise them but, to be fair, they do often come in full costume…)
So yet again we spent out day flapping our gums and generally having a lovely time to our soundtrack of the year, provided by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
We already can’t wait for next conventions: Leamington in March, then Oxford in April, London in August and Leeds in September. Seeya at one of them I hope!
