So I was at the beach when I saw Unipooch and Zenia.
(the text was not floating around at the beach, I added that later for a cool designy look)
The majestic sight inspired me to make a new Unihorn.
The Zenia Queen of Books horn. Great for parties and formal occasions.
But I suck at taking pictures.
Arn and Unipooch: Probably the best looking pair of friends on the planet.
First there was The Lady With Big Teeth.
Then there was The Drawing of The Lady With Big Teeth.
Then came The Crochet Version of The Drawing of The Lady With Big Teeth.
And then finally came The Drawing of The Crochet Version of The Drawing of The Lady With Big Teeth. It was done by Regitze and it is the best version.
Comic festivals makes you happy. Until it’s over, then it’s all singing Moonriver with a tiny voice while gazing out of the window.
I was sharing a table with official Queen of Merchandise, Maren.
She put me on chocolates. That makes her the queen.
Crochet mini-me was very exited about Maren. Picture by Jens Hedegaard Malmberg.
“Art Spiegelman might be speaking but the crowd is still lining up to meet Stine.” Picture by Carsten Fogh.
“I think this is where someone in the audience asked her, what the weirdest thing she has ever drawn was.” writes Line Tind who took the photo. Natasha Allegri answered “I don’t know, but yesterday I drew a buff Thomas the Tank Engine.”
I really tried not to overly fangirl Natasha Allegri. I did not succeed.
Mårdøn Smet is another one of my favorite artists. He always holds the pen like that.
…and then he creates magic like this.
Mikkel Sommer is so brilliant I just want to squeeze him. He made a GoT zine with his 3 year old daughter, and he signed a sexy Brienne in my copy.
People in comics are naturally better looking than everybody else. But even amongst those John Kenn and Bodil stand out as lookers.
Here is my festival loot. Not nearly enough, but good stuff.
I wanna go again NOW!
I crochet people sometimes. My sister, Thomas and Marta. They seem ok with it. Maybe I will make a book about how to crochet your friends.
Once upon a time there was a unipooch.
Unipooch was always happy, because he was Unipooch.
But Unipooch lost his unihorn one day after too much rolling around.
Just being Pooch was not quite the same. Pooch was sad.
Then one day he received a letter. He did not know from whom.
He opened the letter, and he knew from the drawing that it was from his pal, Stine. Inside was a cute little bag. Pooch was getting very exited.
AND SWOOSCH! He got a new unihorn!
Unipooch was finally happy again.
He became a symbol of spring. Of hope.
And he also became quite the ladies man.
