Back from the MCM Expo, and it was awesome. I was tabling in the Comics Village all weekend and had a blast, and met a lot of really nice people. Really nice people. Special thanks to Dan and Amanda Potter of Walking the Lethe for letting me roomshare with them, especially given the last-minute nature of things. Go read their comic and buy their stuff. Do it.
I will admit that going from the isolation of my art cave to a giant convention hall with 40,000 visitors passing through over the weekend meant I got a tiny bit overstimulated and exciteable from all the people and action and noise and stuff going on. I probably talked a bit too fast, and I definitely waved my arms around like Kermit the Frog. But oh man, my brain is fizzing with enthusiasm for making comics. It’s what these events do to me, and I love it.
Incidentally, if I talked to you this weekend then please bear in mind that I don’t have a great memory for faces and costumes (mainly because there were so many faces and so many costumes), so don’t take it personally if I don’t remember meeting you straight away. Nudge me with a few more details (particularly stuff we talked about), or just keep talking to me and it’ll help me remember in future.
The next couple of days will involve working like crazy to get the next page done on time, since the Expo basically ate most of my week. Wish me luck.
