I haven’t got much to talk about this week. I’ve noodled around on the writing front, been to work like I’m supposed to, given a Father’s Day present that will probably never be used (also like I’m supposed to, right?), and dispensed birthday gifts in the general direction of my sister for later in the week. On site, I finally remembered to put up a link for AMEK’s HEMA-paloosa (not it’s proper name) in the Netherlands.
The only other thing to mention is the Doncaster Steampunk Festival [External Link] that happened this weekend. Apparently all went well and it will be an annual event. I turned up only briefly, basically to meet a few friends in person, and in what can best be described as civilian gear – not being much of a steam or punk enthusiast, all things considered. What little I saw looked lovely, so I do recommend making a note and looking out for it next year.
The friend(s) I went to meet, by the way, was John Reppion, of graphic novel and comic writing team Moore&Reppion [External Link], who has published a book with Dylan Fox [External Link] and Allegra Hawksmoor [External Link]. Foxie and Allegra would also have been there but had some car problems in the week that made this impossible. Oh, and John introduced my to comic creator and illustrator Sally Jane Thompson [External Link]. Hmmm… What’s the collective noun for a group of creative people? A clique?
