Home from MCR...
I really did complete my month of daily doodles, but I guess I blew it, as I was in the wilds and couldn't post 'em. Such as they are, here they are anyway.
There are are few more scritches, but the scanner just conked out...
It certainly is a long way to Shropshire. (Until Thursday, I'd had some vague notion we were going to Dorset!) Didn't clock any interesting Lads, but there was an Eeyoreish hairy pony who didn't want to know, and a friendly Briard. I walked in some horseshit, and mainly sat in a silent stupour, slowly sinking into the sofa. We produced the strangest, most incomprehensible to anyone who wasn't there, MCR jam minicomic EVER. Pretty cool. It was a very good, huge, weird house, and congratulations/thanks to Jay and Selina for finding/booking it and arranging/catering/supervising the whole thing. and yet again, thanks to Sophie and Chris for getting me there and back, as they cannae be thanked enough.
So, now I can concentrate on getting my right leg's varicose veins zapped by foam injection tomorrow afternoon... "Yew are going to let zem inject zis FOREIGN SUBSTANCE into your body?! Already yew haff zat THING inside yew.." (R Next Door, who refuses to accept that I don't have a gastric band, they 'just' whisked out half my stomach...)

Cool…I take it that was like a comics slam or something?

Pretty much. A dozy, doodly weekend in the country. A bunch of indy cartoonists congregate to produce a mini.

I'm going to have a guess that the teapot/glasses is a tribute to Debra? They certainly remind me of her, and I know she did the midwinter comics retreat in NZ before moving to the UK and starting it there.

Good luck with the injection! Sounds a lot cruisier than the old surgical method.

Yes, we jam on a minicomic, led by Jay. It's always total geek injokes utterly baffling to anyone who doesn't know the creators. This one (sort of) involved the spirit of Debra in the form of a giant teapot spacecraft, kidnapping all the participants to bring about another MCR. I like to think she would have approved.
