OK, so I’ve been pretty remiss with regards posting the results the last couple of weeks so thought I better get them up on site whilst I was getting all the traffic of the back of the BICS blog entries. Two weeks ago saw Sean Wiggins bagging his second tournament win, last week saw Dan Browning winning for the first time (other than Tag tournaments) then this evening saw a return to winning ways for Sam Pearson. Its great to see that a number of players are getting the tournament wins these days as it shows just how much the middle ground finishers have improved, upsetting Stephen and Liams dominance that we saw in 2009 and early 2010.

Sketch 7 – Nigel Dobbyn
I have to be honest I only knew Nigel from his work on Fleetway’s Sonic comic and even then only vaguely. However when I requested a sketch for Cam in his Gotham book, he agreed to do a piece for us FOC, although we did have to find a reference so that the costume was correct. Throughout the drawing process he chatted with Cam and myself, explaining art techniques. The end result wasn’t one of Camerons favourites, however I REALLY love it. It’s clean, cute and i also like the fact that the initial structuring pencils are still visible underneath. One of my favourites of the weekend. Nigels website can be found here ->http://www.nigeldobbyn.com/

Sketch 1 – Simon Wyatt
http://simonwyatt.blogspot.com/
Simon was the first to jump in and volunteer to draw Grodd for Cameron, after two artists had balked at the idea. The final illustration came out great. Will be getting it framed to go up in Camerons room. Read More »

Have just spent a GREAT two days up at BICS. Thought I should share a quick account of the weekends events. Apologies for the fact it’s in bulletpoint format.

1) Took about 4 hours to make the journey from Maidstone to the Premier Inn (only £117 for 2 nights, inc 3 breakfasts each day) in Birmingham, with Judge Dredd John (John Burdis) driving us up.

2) Reccied out the venue for the Convention then headed into Birmingham City center to look for food, eventually finding a nice Italian called La Villaggia, where the food was good, kids portions were excellent, smaller versions of the main meals and the prices weren’t unreasonable. Read More »
