I wanted to avoid it and I thought it would be a great opportunity to stop and think about what I wanted to do with my art. I mean, yeah, it's definitely going to be about publishing a comic, maybe a graphic novel, maybe a cartoon but what do I REALLY want, you know?
Anyway, I went and helped out Daniel Cooney at his Valentine table and it was good fun. Dan's a brilliant storyteller and an accomplished teacher and comic booker. He's been doing it since a little before senior year of college and he's still going strong.
I think I wanna be him when I grow up.
Anyway part deux, I also got to chill with the Florida Comix Scene, the gang from Cosmic Times and Creature, who were doing their thing with a fury! I got to hang at the Creature table for a couple of days doing sketch covers. First day was cool, the second was cool but I didn't sell any covers... that's how it goes, unfortunately, but I got to hang out with a brilliant bunch of guys (and girl) that, if I can get more organized, I would like to do some work for.
So the show was fun, funner than usual. I'm a little upset that I didn't get to hang with the Pronto Comics collective and I'm sad Grayhaven didn't make it. Next year, Gadget... next year!
Now for some plugs:
