The year twenty fourteen is drawing to a close and before the final curtain call we thought we’d catch up with our authors for a little hello; chat about their books and see what they have in their sketchbooks (sneeeaky). First up isJesse Hodgson. Jesse is a bristol based illustrator and author of the wonderful children’s picture book Pongo. Pongois a beautiful tale and one that we go back to again and again, both to marvel over Jesse’s illustration style, which is simply a joy, and to revel in the warmth of her narrative. Here, folks, is Jesse Hodgson.
We’re back for another year of comic madness at this year’s Thought Bubble in Leeds. It’s going to be a whirlwind weekend with plenty to keep the eyes pre-occupied as exhibitors pile into the gargantuan venue to flog the best of this year’s harvest. Joining us this year is author and illustrator Andrew Rae whose new graphic novel, Moonhead and the Music Machine has hit the streets with a resounding bang! He’ll be with us throughout the weekend to sign his book and just have a general chit chat.
Also joining us for the weekend will be the creator of the Hildafolk series, Luke Pearson. Luke has been shortlisted in the Young People’s Comic category for the British Comic Awards which will be announced at Thought Bubble. We’re super thrilled with the nomination and have been keeping all manner of body parts crossed for weeks, so whether it’s unwinding with a Pearson win or simply unwinding, hope you’ll join us in shaking ourselves lose at stand 166-167 in the New Dock Hall.
