Updates

In the middle of the Olympics excitement (seems like ages ago now), i+P #2 made its debut at the International Alternative Press Fair at the Conway Hall in London. It was a great day (I was there for the Sunday) and issue #2 got lots of attention. I love the alternative press fairs – so much diversity in creativity on display. They’re always very inspiring and the organisation was excellent.

It was at the IAPF that I sold my last copy of issue #1. There are a few dotted about in a couple of shops but otherwise issue #1 is sold out. Sales of issue #2 also did well at Caption in Oxford – not really a selling event, but a forum for the exchange of ideas and an excellent one at that (I happen to be on the committee, so I would say that!)

I’m really pleased with the way #2 has been received and very much appreciated this review by Zainab Ahktar. I’m also looking forward to issue #3 which is in production right now, and will be out in time for the Thought Bubble festival in Leeds in November. That’s a great event, probably the best convention out there, so do come along if you can and say hello.

In the meantime, I’ll continue to post some more sneak peeks of #2 – there’s so much good stuff I haven’t shown. More soon!

IAPF 2012

Sales of #2 have been brisk (great word, that) – thank you to everyone who has purchased already! This weekend we’ll be taking #2 for its first venture into the outside world at this year’s International Alternative Press Festival, in London. The best place to see the widest range of small press and self-published works whether they are comics, zines, posters and prints. We’ll be there Sunday 5th only with issue #2 (and the last couple of copies of #1) but the festival is ongoing – there’s already an exhibition throughout Conduit Street, curated by our friend Tanya Meditzky and tonight is the launch of the latest edition of the amazing alternative comics newspaper, the Comix Reader. The full program of events is here.
