The Greenbelt Festival starts on Friday, and I will be there not really doing much. One or two pieces of information follow:
Where I will be
Quite often I will be in the G-Books tent which is being run by Hymns Ancient and Modern (company that includes Church Times, Church House Bookshop, etc). Some of the time I will be behind a table explaining the intricacies of subscribing to the Church Times to enquirers and passers-by. There will be an exhibition of cartoons (laminated), including ones that haven’t appeared in any of the books. Do come and say hello.
I have nothing to sign, and will be signing it in G-Books at the following time: Sunday, 1.30pm. Bring plaster casts, copies of Rob Bell books, etc. Alternatively my books, greetings cards (five designs) and 2012 calendar will be available and I will scribble on them thereby reducing second hand resale value by approximately 25%.
An exciting development. A t-shirt with a cartoon of mine on will be available for the first time. Images can be seen down below (these are photoshopped pictures showing what the t-shirt would look like if worn by a theoretical model who only exists in photoshop). The t-shirts will be available in quite limited numbers and I have been told they will cost £10 and come in blue, grey, and white. All shapes, sizes, and colours are ethical. Staff will have one with ‘Staff’ written on it. I’d buy one sooner rather than later to be sure of getting your preferred size and colour. No one knows whether they will sell or not, hence limited numbers.
People have been asking me how to get hold of my hand-drawn festival map (from which the t-shirt cartoon is taken – sort of). If you are not a Greenbelt Angel (they already have them) look out for people like me giving out the ‘Guide to Greenbelt’ on Friday evening, or come to the G-Books / Church Times tent and pick one up (free).
