WonderCon, VanCAF, CAKE 2016

Although I still have a great time at every comic convention, I find myself with less and less to say about each. This year I’m grouping my first three shows in a single, easily-digested post. This is not to diminish my experience at each. If you met me at one of these shows, you saw that I was excited to be there. It really is a thrill each and every time. There’s the first hour of increasing worry that this will be the first show at which nobody buys anything from me. Then there’s the lunch rush. Then, from maybe 1-3pm, is when I get my most sales. I have to say, there is no caffeine as effective as selling my comics. It is a feeling that never gets old. For the rest of the afternoon I’m passing out postcards and trying to remain upbeat and engaged. By the end of the day I’m exhausted. I’ve been talking to my neighbors a bit more and looking forward to dinner. The close of the day is a mixed emotion: I’m thinking back over all the funny, interesting conversations I’ve had, ready to not be on my feet anymore, but also a bit sad to see it over. Fortunately, there is always another day and another show. So here’s to the first three of the year, and to San Diego coming in July.

CAKE this weekend!

A gentle reminder to all of you in the greater Chicagoland area: I’ll be exhibiting at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo this weekend! CAKE seeks to answer the question, Is there a greater force for good than Neil Brideau? Neil and his posse of comics friends have truly made something special.  I can’t wait to come be a part of the very first CAKE.
Take a gander at this amazing list of artists! I will be found at table 79, nice and cozy next to the creator of the Foldy Comic, Kenan Rubenstein. Come on down Saturday or Sunday. It’ll be worth your trip. I promise not all the comics there will be as staggeringly depressing as some Chicago cartoonists’.
