Too long to post here. Read the whole post on my blogspot blog.
I'm only gonna post a few pics of the artists I met and my swag.
Top left, going counter-clockwise:
Elleisamonster (artist, crafter, jewelry maker), Jeff Martin (War of 1812 Web Comic, HEAT, Rent-A-Thug), Vic Malholtra (Tiger Lawyer, Thumbprint) and Ryan Ferrier (Tiger Lawyer, Ultranova), Ven Seun (God Game).
All of these people are fucking fantastic.
Here is my haul, tons of stuff from friends and a few things I found on the internet and am so happy to have a physical copy of now. I labelled everything in the image so just click to read.
A huge giant internet hug and thanks firstly goes to Ryan Ferrier for making a fan girl out of me. I went to meet the gorgeous bastard and previously for a long time, I had waited for my print to come in the mail which was an incentive for when you helped Kickstart Tiger Lawyer into print. We shook hands, chatted a bit and he offered everything on the table and turned my money away. What a guy. I'll have to do something in turn, I don't know what yet but I will think of something to repay that kindness.
Next, a big hug and thanks to Sylvia Prime for organizing and putting in a reservation at the swanky Charcut. And we jested, and we conversed, and we learned that you can't sort basic bitches and that everything is literally made out of garbage. I (heart) you.
One goes out to Daniel Schneider for driving there and back again, you're my giant eagle. Fo' realz homie.
Another, Miss Stephanie Chan for ferrying myself and Jennifer at least twice and holding my luggage and being a good friend and shit. Yeah, fist bump.
Fist bumps to all my friends I managed to see and hear from and those who were home still texting and being cool. *pow* Thanks to Nick Johnson and Jason Mehmel for drawing in my sketchbook for a dude you've never met. And thanks to Andrew Foley for sketching in my sketchbook for a dude he does know and making me all jealous because I want a sketch now. And a thank you to Chris Peterson for the awesome hook-ups and photobombs, Neil Lalonde for drawing the most obscene things in the comics I bought from you (heart throb).
