Manchester Comiccon Weekend

I got back to my house at 7pm last Sunday, slumped onto the couch and said, “Well, that was a weekend and a half!” I was exhausted. We had spent two days at Manchester Comiccon which, by far, had been the best weekend we had experienced in a good few years. Over the weekend I […]

Comic Con Scotland – For The Love of 80s

“Whoa!” That was genuinely what I said when I saw the line-up of guests at Comic Con Scotland. I go to quite a few Comic Cons every year and the main draw for me are the guests. I do love buying geeky things from the stalls, and I do go to talks to listen to […]

People go to meet fellow collectors, but also to […]

8 Bit Artwork - Retrospecs

Retro Camera App – Retrospecs

Recently I came across an app that manipulates images into simulations of “retro” computer formats, called Retrospecs. As you can imagine, I excited beyond the normal realms of excitement.
