100 years in comics!

I saw my old pals David Leach and Bambos Georgiou at the Robot: Illustration and Creative Arts Convention in Sheffield yesterday and it occurred to me that the three of us have a combined experience of nearly 100 years working in comics! I've known Bambos and David since we started out in the business over thirty years ago and it's not often these days that our three paths meet at events so it was great to catch up with them again. Nice to finally meet Bambos' wife Jane too (who took this photo). 

In case you didn't know, David Leach is the creator of Psyhco Gran and is an editor at Titan Comics, and Bambos has recently worked on The Bash Street Kids for Beano with Mychailo Kazybrid (another artist who started out 30 plus years ago). They've all done much more than that over the past three decades of course!

You can read my report of yesterday's convention on my other blog here:

The next convention I'll be at will be Stoke-Con-Trent on 9th April.
