Finally coming to you with my recap on Alternative Press Expo, San Francisco.
What a phenomenal show. I was amazed at the level of talent at this show. I left feeling totally energized and wanting to make art. That is how I want to leave every con. Matt, Lucien and I had a wonderful time and met a lot of new friends. (Lucien decided he wanted to come dressed a Leonardo for day two.) The support and friendly attitudes of the exhibitors was infectious. Even though it was my first time participating I felt welcomed. Emma SanCartier was gracious and helped me with my tabling duties so I could get lunch and short breaks.
My table neighbors were wonderful. Justin Thompson with Mythtickle, Brian Klom with Atomic Bear Press and just a table over was Bill Robinson. Bill and I both attended RIT and were Art House members. It has been a few years since we were in touch; we had a great time catching up. He was kind enough to make us an Octo-Puss in Boots.
And of course we have even more new Octo-Puss in Boots! Thank you all for contributing we love these new additions.
It truly was an honor and pleasure to meet all of you and chat as you created these beautiful sketches for us! I look forward to seeing you at future shows.
Finally a big thank you to Cody Williams for his Yeti! Yeti watches me while I work and keeps me on task. We have been partying since he arrived though; we only decided I should do work today. Hence my delay in posting my APE recap.
