Before we get into full swing in the new year with some more of Chris McAuley's interview with one of the 'fathers of 2000AD', Pat Mills, another in our series of posts highlighting the creative activities of Sector House 13 members. This time round we're looking at Jay Snyder, a creator of wondrous objects and the proprietor of The Mad Hatter's Steampunk Emporium.
As he'll explain himself, Jay is a keen cosplayer and we look forward to our regular previews of his latest creations at our monthly meetings in the Parlour Bar in Belfast. (last Friday in the month, lest you forget).
You can check out, and even buy some of Jay's creations at his web-site and see even more of his dazzling creations, but in the meantime just take a quick look at our startling gallery of photographs and read some of Jay's own words about himself..
You may know me as the mad hatter but others call me Jay Snyder (the cider hider). I have humble origins, born in Dartford, Kent and moving to Essex at the age of 6 with my Mater and Pater. My alternative tastes developed from an early age, with my love of comics and fantasy. 2000 A.D. and Judge Dredd being two my favourites.
