: Dreddcon. Will you be there? YES/NO
: Rio De Fideldo 30 September, 2005, 06:41:38 PM
Yes.

Its my first time and I'm v.excited. Will there be old progs for sale as well as artwork? Also do you have to take your own paper for Sketches or do the artists have their own?

Sadly no Due to cash reasons so every one else MUST have 3 times the fun to make up for it

I'm missing this year - for the first time in years - but want to wish everybody well.

Have a great time, and raise a glass to a fishy fool!

Cheers

Yes.

It's my 3rd and I'm very excited, especially as this year for the first time I will be attending the legendary Shedcon tonight.  

It's considered good form to bring your own sketchpad - makes keeping the sketches afterwards easier too!

I think people are fed up of me saying I'm going to be there... But yes, I'm almost all geared up (just need a new, aies friendly bag to store things in) and ready to head out tomorrow morning!

LMS -
Are you taking charge of organising the group photo this year?

Sadly no.
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...
: Funt Solo 30 September, 2005, 06:55:23 PM
Nope.

Too many other brands in the fire for this particular shenanigan.  

I think Amstor should organise a 2K convention in Dingwall, though.  It's obviously the heartland of Squaxxdom.
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...
: Dan Kelly 30 September, 2005, 07:04:05 PM
Yes I am.

I shall be bussing down to the Shed tonight, then getting up bright, early and hungover tomorrow to do the same for DreddCon.  Need those dizzy sketches ;)

Yes! :)

and tweak, i'm sure we will all have 3 times the fun without you there :O
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...
: Thursday 30 September, 2005, 07:08:13 PM
Oh yes, and without bored flatmates in tow this time around.  Also heading out to the legendarily legendary Shedcon for the first time, with expectations raised monumentally high by the board hype.
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...
: Matt Timson 30 September, 2005, 07:16:51 PM
I will be attending, but not getting too wasted at the Shed as I can't stand the thought of feeling ill all day tomrrow- as has been the case at the last two Bristol cons.  Also, I tend to make a bit of a twat of myself after three pints.

Of course, I don't do anything as girly as puke up in the morning...

;)
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...
: Bolt-01 30 September, 2005, 07:32:29 PM
YES. And my lad (Don't ask what he's calling himself now) will be there too.

Not making the shed (I wish I could) but I'll be in Oxford nice and early tomorrow.

How long are the queues for sketches likely to be?
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...
: Dunk! 30 September, 2005, 07:33:51 PM
A definite 'Yes', that has turned into a 'Maybe' due to a friend dropping out.

What time Shedcon? and can you get a cheap hotel this late in the day?
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...
: Bolt-01 30 September, 2005, 07:36:34 PM
Dredd 85: It all depends on the artist.

I'd expect huge queues for Fabry and McCarthy, due to the fact that they don't do this sort of this very often.

Tulkas: Hope you make it, be great to meet you.

Well, if someone supplies the camera, I'll supply the boarders ...

I won't be there to get drunk and bore people to death with my rants.  Which from my perspective, is a shame!
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...

Misery!

I'll be there this evening from about 8-8:30 and tomorrow all day I hope (but not the evening).

I'm not sure if there are any back prog merchants. I don't think there were last year.

I've just bought myself another A5 sketch pad in case I do really well and fill my current one. It's certainly the norm to bring something for the artist to draw on, but they should have the pens/pencils.

Cheers,

Wake

Not going, and not happy about that!
I'm as skint as a very skint thing.

There were back progs on sale last year - they were in the presentation hall bit. I bought the full run of The Slavers of Druule.

It starts to dawn, & sink in, the words "sketches" & "fabry" open a deeep pyschological chasm of horror, no i won't be there........

Even alien prOn texts from the filthy squaxx at the nerve centre canst not sooth my angst .... " sketches & fabry " ARGHGHGHGHHHHhhhhhhGGGGG. ! ! !

not even a big smoooochy smooo from olde green bonce would do.

i think youre all rubbish, shed con is rubbish, oxford is rubbish, dredd-con is rubbish, fondeling Carlos's art is rubbish. comparing arm muscles with bisley is rubbish. getting a sketch from fabry would be.....nnuurggglrzzzkkk*@KrrKK ARGFHGHGHHHHHHhGGGGG!

I'll be there, but only till about 5ish (how long do you think I'd need to give for a taxi ride to the station?). First time I've gone, so I'm pretty excited.

Will

: Aaron Smurf Murphy 01 October, 2005, 04:02:24 AM
Definately. Probably not bothering with the portfolio session because I spent the sumer doing illustrations rather then actual comics. Shame as I'm doing Dredd for college, might bring that if anyone wants a look.

Bringing some stuff to get signed, paying off Gary and buying a few fanzibes.
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...
: Natsan 01 October, 2005, 04:05:21 AM
I'll be there,despite having the lurgy the past couple of days.It's good to share....
: Re: Dreddcon. Will you be there? Y...
: paulvonscott 01 October, 2005, 04:30:09 AM
Ah, so that was Gary's latest money making scheme - extortion.  Good luck with it Gary, but remember, most small businesses fail within the first year.

And Nat, it wouldn't be a con unless you caught some hideous disease.
