VanCAF was a wonderful experience. Vancouver is truly a city of the future. Bike paths, easy access to the most startling mountains this blogger has seen outside the Front Range, community art centers that host comic festivals, kind attractive people. The Festival itself was small yet yielded great interest, in no small part due to the free admission and location along a busy pedestrian thoroughfare.

Among the exhibitors I found extraordinary talent. A small sample of the work is presented below:

VanCAF trades
Brett Williams – Laura Knows Best
Renee Nault – Witchling
Trevor Waurechen – mini-comics, including his 24-hour comic Open Bar
Laurenn Stipes – mini-comic
Laura Bifano – postcards of paintings of geometric animals
And of course, my gracious tablemate Matt Ocasio, without whose generosity I wouldn’t have been there at all.

You were a wonderful hostess, Vancouver. I hope to visit again someday.

    It was nice meeting you at VanCaf. I’m reading the five volumes of Welcome to Falling Rock National Park I bought from you there. Your comics are so much fun. Constantly laughing out loud. Cheers!

    Thanks for the kind words Jessica! I hope I can make it to VanCAF again next year.
