Got back from Lille ready to catch up on Stickleback when I discovered there's been a muck-up with my accounts which is going to take several days to sort out. I've had to beg a deadline extension from Tharg-in-Residence Matt Smith, which the Mighty One has granted, but it does mean I can't in all conscience spend the time I'd like on a full report of the festival. More soon, I promise.
Suffice to say, Lille was astonishingly pretty, and though a little quiet, it was a good con; very much in the style of UK con, except with better coffee :-) I was kept occupied sketching the whole two days. Everyone was very friendly, and incredibly patient with my fragmentary and clumsy French.
Lille: elephants de l'Inde, circulation de Paris.
L'Halle des Sucres, the main venue for the Festival.
