These are some tiny notebooks I made to sell at MCM. I'm not sure how I feel ethically about making money from fanart, so I compromised and only made 5 of each. Unfortunately that meant a few sold out before we remembered to take a photo of the table, so I thought I'd put them all up for you to see.
A lot of people didn't recognise the top three. They're the Minish, from Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap.
Last weekend Sammy and I went to London MCM Expo. We had a great time! It was much busier than we expected (a lot of people in Comic Village were surprised by the number of guests) and we did very well for sales!
The downside is that we sold out of a lot of stock, which has never happened to us before. We need to get a move on making something new before our next event at Manchester MCM in July.
Sammy has put up a lot more pictures and some descriptions of everyone's work on the Inspired blog.

This is my cover for the Spring 2013 issue of What's the Time, Mrs Woolf?, with and without the tracing paper overlay. We didn't set a theme this time, so I decided to go with a wolf (our mascot) and some Spring flowers (specifically wood anemones).
We took this issue to Bristol Expo last weekend and sold quite a few copies, so I'm quite happy with the cover. It seemed to catch people's eyes.
I've also started putting What's the Time, Mrs Woolf? up in my etsy shop.

This is my cover for the 2013 Inspired anthology, Mixtape. I was very pleased to win the vote again this year, as the other cover was very good! I'm a little worried the colours won't be bright enough once it's printed, but we've never really had that problem before so hopefully it won't be an issue.
You can play two games with this cover. One is 'spot the character expats', I'll start you off by saying Iona from Patience is a Virtue is very easy to find. The other is 'spot which headphones were added in the digital colouring stage because Sarah realised the composition wasn't good'.

I've been working on two short comics for this year's inspired anthology. This is the second one, The Music Cupboard, featuring Poppet the House Hob. This time Poppet and her friends are infiltrating a human school, concealed in a cello case.
Poppet previously appeared in The Bad Fairy Bakery (which was also drawn for an Inspired anthology) and answers questions in What's the Time, Mrs Woolf?. The Bad Fairy Bakery is available to buy online, but you can also read it on this blog.
The finished anthology will be available at Bristol Comics Expo, London MCM Expo and Manchester MCM Expo this year.
