Model rail

This month I’m going to be even geekier than normal 1

Tomorrow I shall be attending the Manchester Model Railway Society’s exhibition. Simultaneously, some of my comics shall be on sale from the Manchester Comix Collective’s table at the Birmingham International Comic Show. Meanwhile I’m creating new models for my Shapeways shop. I’ve set myself a deadline of Monday so I can order stuff to sell at Gamecon ’09 on the 17th.

And if that isn’t enough, I’m almost ready to start the first page on my space comic, which is now titled Point of Contact. I’ve had a few volunteers on Facebook who want their surname to be given to the family who are four of the six main (human) characters. I may just write all the names down on slips of paper and draw them out as I need surnames.

Stencil Revolution

I’m sketching a bunch of ideas for stencil graffiti, to become transfers for modern image railway modellers who want to add a little grit. So I thought I’d see what resources there are for stencillers online. (Update The stencil graffiti transfers can now be ordered from Spinneyworld.)

Stencil Revolution is an Australian collective. The tutorials and gallery sections are down at the moment because they were having security issues, but there are a few good examples still dotted around.

Banksy, of course.
