Vintage stalls, hipsters and Phil Collins

Hokay so I feel pretty hipster today. So hipster in fact that I bought these cheap glasses^. It was too funny at the time not to. BUT ANYWAY. Along with my flatmate Sarah ( I took a stroll down to the How Bazaar event at our university, where a whole bunch of awesome people were selling some great handmade bits and bobs, and illustrated prints too.

I ended up spending more than I intended but there were some awesome people behind the stalls today. It was especially nice to meet the illustrators behind work I'd seen at last years degree show; I ended up buying badges and prints from Jake Lockett, Katie Upson and Kyle Underwood (hope I got yer names right!), and was surprised to find that Kyle has been reading my webcomic Cafe Suada! :D Result.

Also saw a fantastic print highlighting a major issue: The difference between Jafar cake and Jaffacake. SO easy to get them mixed up. It was a fun event to say the least, and it had a kickass soundtrack to say the most! First step inside and Back to the Future starts playing, followed by Phil Collin's In the Air Tonight, followed by MORE AWESOME.

Yup. 'Twas a good Saturday. But now I must return to getting ready for the degree show. All of my final project stuff is pretty much ready to go up, it's just that I need to hunt down and sort out all of my competition work into something presentable... I'll do my best. U_U'''

I leave you with Jaffacake:


  1. Glad you had a good day! I'll let the lads behind the day's soundtrack (actually some of the guys doing the charity bike ride the show was in aid of!) know you approved, they're all super wicked arty types too (,,

    Oh, and the hipster macro killed me XD

    Good luck with the show!

  2. Oooooh thanks for the links >u< Cheers!
