Our friend and Baby Tattoo publisher Bob Self is part of the jury panel for the Spectrum awards. So naturally, he brought his roadshow down through town to stop at the exhibition. Artists Coop, Gris Grimly, Ragnar (who has provided incredibly cool graphics for Collector's Shangri-La), and doll-maker Marina Bychkova, were all on hand to sign their books.
