What I Did in My Summer Holidays by James Jarvis Age 37 3/4

Whilst Russell has been gadding about Southern California I have been keeping things real in South London.

I am working on two projects at the moment. One is a large scale sculpture which should be revealed early next month. The second is quite an ambitious and exciting multi-disciplinary undertaking that won't be exposed to the public until next year, but should keep me busy for the next few months.

In the meantime I have discovered a new manifestation of the potato-head which I can't stop drawing. I'll try and post an example.

I am still not back to running. The fracture has now healed, but at my last consultation (three and a half weeks ago) I was given another six weeks before I would be discharged back to full activity. It's very frustrating as I am itching to try out the new Nike Lunar Racers which have just come out.

Until then I have really got back into cycling, doing as many miles as time permits. Its very liberating riding the North Downs and out into Kent, which look amazing at this time of year.

Interview Film

Earlier this year Alex Gould, a student at Liverpool, came down to London to interview me for a film he was making for his Degree Show. He's just posted it online.

SDCC Saturday 26th July

My last Comic-Con blog before I go off camping in what forests are still left in California...

Hello Kitty goes in search of YOD to help her cause in the myspace battle with worldwide Black Metal.

A Saturday afternoon zombie flash mob.

SDCC Friday 25th July

Frenzy as the King Kuns go on sale. Gone in a matter of minutes.

More frenzy as a multitude of Slave Leias descend upon a huge Jabba the Hutt sculpture. More than a few of these girls are WWOA.

After last night's disappointment, Samantha and Jacquelyn are happier today after collecting their copies of WWOA and posing for all to photograph at the Strangeco booth.

WWOA cover girl Ruby Rocket comes and visits the Strangeco stand dressed as Starfire.

And later, after a ride in a cab driven by William Burroughs, we go and see Ruby headline at a burlesque review on the other side of town.

WWOA is here!

As I'm about to head out to San Diego for Comic-Con 2008(for the official book launch and some serious promotion), first copies of Wonder Woman of America have officially sold through the Amos online store for shipping next week. Thanks to the early adopters!

And this week there has been some excellent magazine coverage for the book release. The August issue of Dazed and Confused has six pages of images and a short interview with photographer Ruth Wiggins, and me. And the new Lodown (issue 62) has three pages with an article written by my old pal, Vincent Carducci. At the end of the month we should hopefully see an article in Creative Review, giving well deserved recognition to the book's designer, Robert Green.

Thanks to all who have shown interest in this project and made it possible. It's been fun.
