International Comics Expo (ICE) Birmingham - September 2018
After the superb time we had at Manchester Comics and Reading Festival, art ninetwo decided to attend ICE in Birmingham, and even we’ve been two years on the trot as visitors and shoppers, this year it was different, we were vendors! We had the most amazing time, we met up with old friends, we made a load more new friends, and the visitors were delightful, it’s amazing who you catch up with when people come up and say “I follow you on Instagram” and you can put a face to a name. We sold some work, we got some commissions but more importantly we met like-minded people who made the day so enjoyable. Thank you to Shane who organises this every year and does a Sterling job. It is such a great event we hope he continues to organise it every year. ICE Brighton takes place later in the year but alas we won’t be attending.
Manchester Comics and Reading Festival - August 2018
artninetwo attended the very first Manchester Comics and Reading Festival in Manchester Central Library on Saturday 18th August. What a beautiful building to hold such an event in with such history and character. The sun shone, the families came out and there were some fantastic cosplay outfits on show. We had a great time catching up with some of the other vendors and chatting with customers who were all wonderful! Thank you to Manchester Central Library for hosting us, the staff were wonderful and could not do enough for us, thanks to Dennis for organising it, what a sterling job he did too! If it happens again next year - count us in!
