A COMICA REVIEW BY:
Artist Francesca Cassavetti was selling her comics at the 2011 Comia Comiket, Independent Comics Fair held on Saturday 12 November at the Bishopsgate Institute in Bishopsgate.
A grand day out in Bishopsgate
After five years of attending Comica’s Comikets, the event has finally come of age.
Though previously held in some wonderful locations such as the ICA and the Pump House in Battersea Park, this the first time that the combination of venue and location has worked so well to bring in the kind of footfall that I’m sure made every exhibitor’s day worthwhile. With plenty of passing trade, free entry and a magnificent continuous large-screen live drawing display kept visitors in the hall. A parade of talents, including such luminaries as Posy Simmonds, Woodrow Phoenix, Sarah Macintyre or the rockstar-like Brecht Evens, below, enthralled the punters and inspired them to purchase product.
Well done Paul and Peter and all the team!
And thanks for being such wonderful table companions, Sean, Sally Ann and Joe Decie.
Then we went to the pub.
