P.R.E.S.S. update

The exhibition opening at the Lit and Phil went very well, and I've sold four paintinhgs so far!

The meeting for P.R.E.S.S. also went well. I'll be mailing out the minutes next week, but here are the general points and conclusions.
Firstly, we have too many fraggles and not enough doozers. And in non-muppet terms that means that although we've found plenty of artists and writers we haven't found enough people interested in organising and building up a community. Secondly, I've been telling everyone how awesome P.R.E.S.S. will be, but not explaining why. So it's important to get across the incentives of being part of P.R.E.S.S. and what it can actually do for people.

The solution we arrived at was to create a programme of fun educational events aimed at people with no prior knowledge or only a passing interest in comics and small press. This will culminate in a taster of P.R.E.S.S., where we take over a space for temporary time.
Hopefully this will get a wider range of people involved in P.R.E.S.S. and give everyone a tangible experience of what we're proposing.
