We are expecting to see an absolutely fantastic bunch of exhibitors at Bristol Comic & Zine Fair 2017. As usual, there will be a good mixture of familiar faces and new names. If you love someone’s work, please make sure that you tell them so. It’s this kind of support which keeps us all going!
This year we will be following our own advice, and having our first Spotlight. This is a selection of exhibitors who we really don’t want you to miss. We have taken time to ask them some probing questions about creativity and life and they have been kind enough to share their thoughts and feelings.

Keep trying keep practicing, I know everyone says it and it’s super annoying cos of course they can say that it’s “easy” for them but the more you practice you basics the more you’ll Bel able to draw and you will eventually find your style.
