2012: A year in photos (part 4)

The Festival is over but the world goes on!

A unique performance piece at Inspace, Glitching was a set of dances inspired by the glitches in 3D animations.


Dr Sketchy's again, Indian Summer gave us some lovely dancing.

I ended up knowing quite a few people who were working at Jupiter Artland so I thought it was about time I went to have a look. And found myself at their closing party to boot.

Last day at Jupiter Artland

Bloody Scotland brought some of Scotland's best-loved crime writers together in Stirling for Scotland's first International Crime Writing Festival.

After many months of planning and a remarkable social media campaign, Brew Lab finally opened to the public. Which has generally been a popular and successful thing.

The Society of Young Publishers had another interesting event, in Glasgow this time. A joint presentation with Graphic Scotland discussing whether comics need publishers.

Do we need comics publishers?

Vicki Jarrett's debut novel, Nothing is Heavy, launched in Wash to a packed house.


The Stitch Lounge returned to Inspace, this time focusing on menswear. They made me make things.

And as part of the tour they were hosting the Golden Hour in venues around the country. In Edinburgh this was held in Inspace - yes, sometimes I feel like I live there.

Part of Inspace's ongoing Atmosphere series and also an excuse for a James Bond themed birthday party: Diamonds are Forever, with cocktails, gin jellies, roulette and cake.

A new monthly event, Rally & Broad brings spoken word and music together with anything else that comes by. This totally justifies it being described as cabaret.

Rally & Broad: The Great Launch!

One more Future Shorts, preceded by a performance by Tony Thrills.

For once seen without her hubby in tow, Amanda Palmer filled Glasgow's Queen Margaret Union and rocked the house.

It's become a tradition to carve faces in a variety of fruit and veg at Halloween, this year was no exception (and featured the first onion).


People covered in body paint roaming the streets rather than swarming over Calton Hill? Ah, Samhuinn...

A combination of very late wedding party and anniversary at Howie's.
