FYI: Alan Moore at the V&A

Just signed up for Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie talking about Lost Girls at the V&A on the evening of the 14th November. Should be quite fascinating.
Legendary anarchist, occultist and comics writer Alan Moore is famous for his subversion of the classic American comic book genre and for groundbreaking works such as The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, V for Vendetta, and From Hell. A celebrated recent work is Lost Girls, created with the artist Melinda Gebbie.

In association with the Comica Festival
Actually there seems to be quite a lot going in, comicswise, in early November, with the rest of the Comica Festival looking rather intriguing...

Thanks to Ben for the pointer


Dawn in the city of lights

It's been a busy week, chez S&M.

We've been churning out the copy that's due, and setting up a pipeline for the next batch of commissions. That's been mixed with the usual round of meetings (including a very interesting conversation with NVIDIA about the latest Apple PowerBooks), and a flyingtraining visit to Paris, where we ended up staying 30 stories over the city, with a spectacular view across to the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe.

We had to rise with the sun for an early set of meetings, and I managed to take a few photos through the tiny crack the hotel had decided was an open window.

Paris Dawn

Up early tomorrow to fly to LA, for Microsoft's PDC08. It's going to be all cloud computing, all the time (plus a hefty dose of Windows 7).
