Had a nice time @ Teesside Park Borders today, signing from 11 through til about 2. Had copies of CHEEKY MONKEY as the main book, plus they'd cunningly got in copies of FRANKENSTEIN'S CAT and MY DADDY. Must have shifted about 20 copies of MONKEY at least, as well as at least about 15 each of the others. They even got me to sign ten more of each so they could put them on display. Interestingly a couple of people asked if I sold artwork from my books... dagnabbit, I knew I should have had some business cards with me.
The picture today is the one image from FRANKENSTEIN'S CAT that i would get done as a limited edition lithograph or giclee print, if I had to choose one. For me it's always perfectly captured what the book and the character are all about: a spring in his stride and an intoxicating smell!
Packing to do tonight and tomorrow for Red Stick- going to be taking a bunch of books as well as possibly some MONSTER MOB prints over with me. I'm not as well prepared as I have been in the past- I wish I'd got some promo cards printed and ordered in a bunch of copies of CHEEKY MONKEY and MY DADDY. Heck, if I behave myself and they invite me back I shall have to do that next year. Do check out the link to the right on the nav-bar for the festival, it's a splendid affair.
