I just thought some of you might like to read this:
We pride ourselves upon the London Super Comic Convention (“L.S.C.C.”) being a safe place, where everyone is welcome to come together and have fun irrespective of their background. Even so, certain kinds of offensive or harassing behaviour will not be tolerated. To the best of our ability, we intend to eliminate inappropriate conduct from the convention.
Harassment of any kind, which includes behaviour which is physically or verbally intimidating, annoying, unwelcoming attentions, stalking, pushing, shoving or the use of physical force; which in any way creates a disturbance that is disruptive or dangerous in our opinion, as well as any boisterous, lewd or generally offensive behaviour or language, using sexually explicit or offensive language or conduct, or profanity, obscene gestures or racial, religious or ethnic slurs will all be considered harassment.
If another convention attendee makes it clear that your attention or behaviour is unwelcome then your business with them is at an end. If you continue to attempt to have contact with this person, you may be removed from the premises and your pass revoked.
Please be aware: “No” really does means no. “Stop” means stop. “Go away” means go away.
Costuming is not to be taken as consent for inappropriate conduct or comments. Please exercise common sense, if you wish to take someone’s photograph it is common courtesy to ask their permission first.
We have taken steps to make it easier to report instances of such behaviour. It is very important that if you feel you are being harassed or threatened that you report it immediately. We cannot address anything that we are not made aware of and we need whatever details can be provided, such as names and any other descriptive information as soon as practical.
If you feel you have been harassed please find the nearest L.S.C.C. member of staff. All L.S.C.C. Staff members can be easily recognized by their yellow “STAFF” t-shirts. They will arrange for an organiser to come and assist you. Alternatively you can go to the L.S.C.C. Information and Merchandise Desk located near the Official Signing Area. All such reports will be treated very seriously.
As an attendee, if you see someone being harassed or the subject of inappropriate photography, we would encourage you to speak up and draw attention to this unacceptable behaviour. As a community, we need to come together, look out for one another, and make sure everyone is treated with respect.
L.S.C.C. reserves the right to revoke or suspend passes. If an individual breaks the rules of the convention, he or she may be barred from the convention. If an individual has broken the law the police will be called. If you have been accused of harassment and feel that you were treated unfairly you may appeal to the organisers, but their decision will be final.
I can only very barely claim to be connected to LSCC, and I’m still hugely proud to read this.
I’m not quite sure what’s happening with me this week, but the results are okay by me.
These seem like the kind of thing people might want prints of. Hands up who’d buy a print of one of these (or something like it?).(Oh, the originals are of course for sale. They’re both black & white ink drawings on heavy paper. I’ve already been saying £40 for the skull, and the tiger’s smaller so let’s call that one £30. Contact me on davidjlwynne @ gmail . com if you’re interested)
Portfolio piece drawn while watching Only God Forgives this afternoon. Started when the film started, stopped when it ended.
Ink on paper, A3. Grey background dropped in afterwards on the computer, obviously.
Not sure what I’m going to do with it yet. I think it might look pretty cool on a tee shirt. What do you think I should do with it, internet? I am open to suggestions.
Destroy the lie that it was “out of control” public spending that ruined the public finances.
It was a banking collapse caused by rampant and unregulated capitalism.
I am really proud of this week’s drawing. The concept was all Rachel’s idea (so far as I know), but I’m happy with my execution of it. I’m wrestling with an uncooperative pen at the moment, that likes to suddenly gob up huge splodges of ink mid-line, so I feel like I earned this smug feeling.
The original is of course for sale, £30+p&p if you’re interested. Talk to me on here or on twitter (@davidwynne) or email me at email@example.com and we’ll work it out.
Oh, er, yeah, the podcast is really good this week too (as usual). But you knew *that*.
