Un-office Xmas Party

Last Friday, we headed off to Edinburgh for a spot of festive lunch (an Un-Office Xmas party, as named by Linda Strachan) with fellow writers and illustrators. It was a day fit for Sherlock Holmes or even Jack the Ripper, as fog completely engulfed the city. But the photos below illustrate what a lovely, warm afternoon it proved to be, in the company of such welcoming and interesting people, namely, Linda Strachan, Vivian French, Julia Donaldson, Gill Arbuthnott, Nicola Morgan, Keith Charters, John Fardell, John Ward, Sally Collins, Julie Lacome, Lari Don, Dave Sutton, Keith Brumpton and Aileen Paterson.

After a few hours, through the fog still, we made our way back to Waverley Station via the Traverse Bar for a drink or two with a friend, and Sandra took a few snaps (below), attempting to capture the wonderful and magical atmosphere. A day we won't forget any time soon.

Comic Workshops

We're looking forward to participating in the Booxfactor! Festival for the second year round. Monday December 7th we'll be delivering two comic workshops in schools in West Dunbartonshire for their annual book festival.

The 2010 calendar is already filling up with more events, starting with an afternoon session at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow at the end of January. Keep your eye on these pages in the New Year for more information.

This autumn was also busy with events, in and around the Wigtown Book Festival, and several libraries in Scotland, and most recently at St Thomas of Aquins High School in Edinburgh (pictured).
