The diary of a Manga artist of many hobbies

Sunday’s outfit: Metamorphose Temps des Fille underbust jumperskirt, tights Grimoire, shoes Louboutin, suit jacket McQ Alexander McQueen, glasses BVLGARI, wing charm on glasses and choker Swarovski, glasses chain ear cuff is my own design, blouse and hairpieces from eBay.

Had an awesome time meeting up with old friends and making new ones, bought lots of swag and stuffed my face with cake and sarnies during afternoon tea XD (and I took lots of silly photos too, but I’ll keep it to this one of me doing my best investment banker impression)

At a friend’s birthday party today! Outfit rundown: glasses by Silhouettes; silk ruffle halter blouse by Jim Thompson; silk seashell printed layered skirt by Emma Cook; watch Chanel; bangle, ring and lace overlay stiletto heels by Karen Millen. Makeup palette from the black travel edition Yves Saint Laurent. #PrinceLeong wears Jojo Maman Bebe top and Baby B’Gosh chinos.

I had a wonderful time at the Melksham Comic Con,over the last weekend, huge thanks to Hayley Spencer and her team of Brians for making it one of the friendliest comic shows I’ve ever been to. I cannot recommend it enough to comic creators and fans, it’s very family friendly too.

Major shout outs to Gary Erskine, Lee Townsend, Mike Collins, Dani Abram, Lizzie Boyle, Jon Lock and my boys, (MAH BOIZ!) the Paradox Comics Group and many more that I can’t name. 

I was SUPER busy at this con due to all the talks/events I was involved in, but also because everyone kept me so busy with sketches! Here is a bunch for you all to enjoy.

Finally, thanks so much to everyone who came by my table and bought my stuff, you guys have made me really happy :) Thanks for being generous and supporting me ❤

I’ve arrived in Melksham where I’m a guest artist at the awesome Melksham Comic Con! One of the loveliest events I’ve ever had the privilege to be invited to, so happy to be back. I’ll be giving talks/demos on Manga on both Saturday and Sunday, and I’m also one of the panellists on Saturday’s mini game show ‘Comics in Just a Minute’ alongside many other awesome industry pros. Expect havoc XD

In other news, I’m totally channelling Karl Lagerfeld with today’s travelling outfit, as is typical of me being a Chanel fangirl, though only two of the items are actually Chanel. Most is Tesco and New Look XD (high-low mix all the way). And I make NO APOLOGIES for my chronic bitchface
