London in May
January 13th, 2010
Just a quick note to say I’ll be attending UX London May 19-21st since I know such corporate shindigs need a little extra planning (and extra coaxing of the boss in most cases).
Had a great time visiting Skype’s London office in November, but while there, I had a number of queries about when I’d be lecturing in the area, since that event was a company-only thingey. So, now you know.
UX London has a lot of great speakers on the bill this year, not just me. Hope to see you there, both from the stage and as a fellow audience member.

I read your book Making Comics (awesome, essessial to anyone who wants create comics) and a I was curious how is your “Eisner Brush”.
You could take some photos of your brush to I better understand?
Thank you and good year!
Sadly, I haven’t used a real brush in many years. It’s all digital now!
Basically though, if you had, say a Windsor Newton sable brush, the idea is to take a narrow piece of paper tape or drafting tape (maybe 1/4 inch) and wind it around the metal casing that holds the bristles, overlapping the bristles just a little bit at their base.
Eisner said (and he was right!) that it kept the bristles from flaring out over time.
just saw that you will be attending the UX in London in May. Well, it was not a joke, telling you on Facebook to come to Germany.We really need you here! The University I am attending is the UDE (University of Duisburg-Essen) and we have a professor who is keen on Comics and established somewhat like a comic-research. He is my exminer, I am actually writing my
thesis on “City of glass”. ‘Understanding comics’ is one of my favourite books and it helps me a lot! From London to Duisburg, ah, that’s only a stone’s throw away. So, if you would generally accept coming to our University and do a lecture I’ll check everything with Mr. Pointner. That’s his name 🙂 So, it would be grand!!!
So long, have a NICE and SERENE day 2day ;-),
