SPX - Just a Taste

Some pictures to come when I get them from Pas, but in the meantime:

Weekend was so good. Very educational too. And the best people I met:

Ben Towle (Midnight Sun - http://www.benzilla.com/) - so nice! And spoke to me for a good ten minutes about art, was very patient when I asked him questions about his tools and scanners.

Mike Dawson (Freddie and Me - http://mikedawsoncomic.livejournal.com/) - This was early on Saturday, and I was still stiff with fear at handing out my comic. He was really encouraging and told me to get it out there, and not worry about it.

Alex Robinson (Tricked, Box Office Poison, Too Cool to Be Forgotten, etc. - http://www.comicbookalex.com/) Talk about being intimidated! I'm a huge fan - M and I have every one of his books, and he's one of the big guys exhibiting at the SPX. But the nicest guy! Really friendly and unassuming, chatted to M and I as he signed our book. We forgot to ask him what he was working on next.

All in all, I handed out about 40 of my comics to various people. And I got really good feedback overall! They seemed psyched to get it, which was cool.

It's a good start, and now I know I have to keep at this shit, and get American, Eh? No.2 figured out. Have ideas for other mini comics as well.

It was so good to see you!

I'm joining this blog thingy and getting a fresh start on blogging, LJ just isn't doing it for me anymore.

Gonna customize later but for now...work! :P

Got home early and had F go through the comics. Gave Nat one of your comics and she was delighted! :D

Pics sent to G. I asked him to forward the link to you. Let me know if he neglected to do so. I will then forward them to you myself after beating him with my laptop. :)
