The Colin McNeil next project certainly is exciting - and made Captain Skank damn near have an orgasm when he heard it - and will be enough to get me buying the Meg again i reckon.

Oooh, that's probably not the one I meant but it's bloody exciting just the same. The one I was referring to...well...it's a confirmation of a rumour.

"I tried to film the arm wrestles, but it was all black on my camera "

Thank God for that...I was thrashed. I must publicly acknowledge that ( mis-quoting Stan Lee, somewhat ) 'Jock is the strongest one there is!'. My arms are still aching today. Rob Williams, though...pah! Lightweight! :-)

Thanks to everyone who chatted, asked for a sketch and was generally splendid company during the day.

A very pleasant weekend all told.

Genuinely surprised by the low turnout for Shed. However it meant most everyone who entered the raffle went away with multiple prizes ;D Finally caught up with an old art school friend I met briefly two years ago at Dreddcon 4. (if yer reading this Paul- good luck with those scores) Even when the opportunity to meet other boarders presented itself, I still found myself getting boozy with the usual suspects. Over all too soon.

A combination of too much alcohol and very little sleep led to a few instances on the Saturday where I made heavy weather of the simplest of social interactions. Apologies.

Well done Gary for winning Pitchfest. Max's "Banana Love" entry has to be heard to be believed!

Thanks to Logan for the Halo Jones GN. Thanks to Rufus for the page of Henry's Shakara- a unique anniversary present Mary is very pleased with and special thanks to LMS and his parents for giving us a place to stay at such short notice late Saturday night, when a hundred or so miles to Leeds was just too far to drive safely.

SOH hint in the sketch room taken with good grace ;)

Cheers, Ol

Obviously you're not a golfer.

'Rob Williams, though...pah! Lightweight! :-) '

I resent that. I also resent getting thrashed the way I did... twice.

Cue a year of intensive right arm only weight work ready for the rematch.

But I have so litte time to sculp my guns...

Actually, screw panels, sketchings and signings. Next year just do a knock-out creator arm-wrestling tournament throughout the day.

The breakdancing episode was the very bizarre highlight, led by the glorious funk shapes of Boo 'Al Swearengen' Cook. Did anyone else see Dom Reardon do a head-spring on the dancefloor, or was that the alcohol?

This macho arm-based foolery is nonsense compared to the dance throwdown that almost destroyed Oxford with the force of a nuclear bomb.

(Also, Dom-2 is some kind of martial arts master or something. He can do 'things beyond your puny imagination' allegedly.)
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
