Manchester MCM Comic Con 2014!
15th July 2014
I’ll be heading to Manchester this weekend for MCM Comic Con – where I’ll be selling comics, art prints, taking commission orders, and even perhaps sketching butts for £2 if you’re cheeky enough to ask. I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun on that one.
I’ll be at TABLE D14 in the Comic Village, somewhere behind the 2K Games booth. As you can see from the floorplan above it should be fairly easy to find. This marks the first year that the Manchester event has expanded to two days, so make sure that if you are attending all weekend, to pace yourselves and check out what’s there before emptying your wallet on the first booth you see.
I will be taking commission orders at the event – generally these are digital commissions that I email or post out the final images after the show. Slots are limited and I already have a few filled from LFCC last weekend. Commissions are completed on a first-come-first-serve basis and start from as little as $10, so if you want to join that list before the lovely people of Manchester do: get in touch before I leave on Friday!
Speaking of commissions – I’m currently testing out “mystery bags” on the table, they contain a random selection of small art prints, sketches, ACEO’s, bookmarks, badges, etc. for around £5, and at least one of them also contains a voucher for a single commission up to a value of £50!
On a safety note, remember to bring water with you as the show will be incredibly busy, and as the weather is likely to be quite warm again it’ll be very easy to get dehydrated – especially if you’re not used to the additional body heat in crowded events like this one. The venue does have AC, but with so many people inside it may get quite warm. The venue will be serving food and drinks throughout the day, and if I remember correctly there is a Subway and a few other places to eat within walking distance – so make sure that you take care of yourself and get to enjoy the weekend as much as possible!
I hope to see some of you there!
