Fig. 1: Me trying my best to act casual any time any of you wonderful people (yes, you!!) came by my table this weekend.
Or when I came to your table, or when I ran into you at the tumblr meetup, or pretty much any time at all! I had so much fun and remembered how much I really dig talking to people about things they enjoy- and everybody there enjoyed the heck outta comics, so it was pretty much perfect.

Fig 3: PRINTS
Phew. The wonderful/scary thing: I KNOW there are just about as many artists again that I didn’t make it over to, or didn’t know would be there and missed entirely! And I think there are still more awesome comics and postcards hiding in my totally still packed suitcase.
Overall: comics are great, cartoonists are making wonderful things, and I can’t wait to come back next year. Big thanks to all the SPX staff and volunteers for making it such a great show! Until then- See you at MICE and Locust Moon Fest : )
