Adam turns 30 + Thought Bubble 2011

December 4, 2011

Hey there,

Just a quick posty post. November 11th isn’t just a day to remember. It is also the day that a certain Adam Cadwell was born. This year in particular was a bit special as it was his 30th- thus much celebrating was in order.

Here he is openin’ presents. And yes, that is the Hogwarts castle in Lego form.

Then it was time for the cake. Nom nom.

Wish time!

That evening Adam also got to blow out candles on a “lego cake” that his sister Jolene made. I particularly like his face here baha!

Adam’s mum got him loads of lego (yes, this is what a 30th birthday looks like) – here they are exploring…

The following night we went out with a bunch of Adam’s friends for food and drinks afterwards. I took this picture in Wagamama – looks like he’s about to eat that lady’s head…

The lego pile he acquired…

Adam also got one of the coolest gifts I’ve ever seen. His buddy Dan made him a Pez for his comic character The King of Things. Bloody BRILLIANT. And the card that accompanied this gift was just as creative and fantastic.

The month of November also means Thought Bubble. I had a pretty good weekend- the best part being hanging out with friends and getting to catch up with people like Biz Horne who I’d chatted with last year.

On the second night we indulged in a delicious sushi meal and were entertained by light saber wielding samurai sushi chefs.

And then we danced. Not as much dancing as I normally do at an event of this nature. But still, some dancing was most definitely done.

I came back from this weekend feeling like my heart was so full- spending time with Julia and Sarah in particular was just… there aren’t words big enough to suit the occasion.

November was a big month full of ups and downs – these were definitely some of the ups.



Podcast, Interview, Review – Roundup!

December 1, 2011

Hey there,

I’ve been really bad at keeping track of articles, interviews, podcasts- that kind of thing. So here’s a roundup of some of the press-related items that I’ve done or spotted over the last 7 months or so.

I was included in the Graphic Ladies tumblr which is pretty neat.

Before TCAF the National Post sent out questionnaires to artists here’s mine.

At TCAF I had the pleasure of getting interviewed with Adam Cadwell by Jimmy Aquino for The Comic News Insider. You can listen to that podcast here.
(We’re past the middle not quite at the end)

Timonthy Swann reviewed both Galavant and The Everyday for MOMBcast #95 back in July. You can have a listen here– we’re an hour into the show.

More recently I did an interview with Andy for “I Live Sweat”- a wonderful webzine. I think this was probably my favourite interview. Really nice dude- I like how it turned out. You can read it here.

Annnd I ended up in the following photo and review from Richard for the Forbidden Planet blog for this year’s Thought Bubble.

I like how Andrew and I are all serious business.

I’m gonna try my best not to leave these suckers for so long next time around. heh.


iPhone Photo Dump

October 29, 2011

I plugged in my iPhone recently in order to update that bad boy and of course this allowed me to grab all the photos I’d taken. I thought I’d do a wee post of some of my favourites. They’re in chronological order from … June-ish until now.

One of my Manchester favourites- Southern Cemetery

I have a feeling with a bit of snow it’d be quite lovely…

Ivy goodness

Yes, I am that big of a nerd that I took a photo of this due to “Snape”.

Best trees? Yes.

I normally walk through there on my way to Dishy Spoon

It looked a bit like rain…

Some of the “cholera pit” roses…

Nothing says “Happy Canada Day” like Krang.

More delicious Dishy Spooness. This time afternoon tea.

Adam decided to draw me in my jogging gear with all my future Harry Potter tattoos. My personal fave is Dumbledore between my breasts.

My friend Emma works at Yelp and organized a champagne tasting- I now consider myself a connoisseur.

I spotted these guys one day on my walk home comin’ out of the Sainsbury. They’d just bought dental floss.
(By the way I initially wrote floos… hehe… FLOOS!)

A typical Kayla day off in photo form… soy chai tea latte + cupcake

Necessary photo of delicious thing- Adam’s average chili pizza

Clearly I have a cupcake fixation. This time I’m at Hey Little Cupcake NOM

That’s the Peach Melba cupcake

This is the morning after Marc came to stay with us. The boys all tuckered out.

One day after work I looked “dead grumpy” so Adam drew it.

In contrast to how bloody happy I was with my banana raincoat.

Readin’ and enjoyin’ a Harry Potter related beverage in Edinburgh at the Elephant House.

Scotland trip goodies

I feel like this is one of the only photos from my entire trip that actually demonstrates the jaw-dropping beauty of some of the scenery I was privileged enough to see.

These were some glorious finds in a toy store in Edinburgh

For real.

And then I mourned… mourned mourned mourned…. Deee Esss Ellllll DSL

This company actually does exist and yes, there is more than one of these bad boys that boast the “best hand job in the north”



There we have it.
