 the adorable miss sarah bracken of baby beef , the fair organizer with my daughter browsing her stall
my favourite stall of the day because of the amazing woman running it.
Artist Michelle (mice hell) is the organizer of Papergirl Ireland  also a kick ass artist and illustrator, maker of events and  general all round magic. Mice Hell
 look look !!
do you remember the amazing post Ritva in Finland made ,well she made it into a beautiful book
(being read here in the above image) and I brought it proudly with me to exhibit amongst my own work(the bookwas bought by the fair organizer no less)

I did a reading of ritvas book and talked about how it came to be in Ireland, lots of people found it very inspiring.
amanda of exploding comics keeping it going

It was a super event , very friendly , a cozy atmostpheric venue and a real air of d.i.y all round.
I really am looking forward to next year and would like to publically thank Roísín my daughter for all her help and support, Sarah  and Wayne for organizing the event and my dear  friend cartoonist extraordinaire.....Elida for sheltering me while I was up in the Big City.
