So I survived my excursion to DC and the Baltimore Comic-Con
. As far as vacations go, I'd have to give this one a thumbs up. There were some bumps and hiccups, but I saw nearly every attraction and monument that I even remotely wanted to see. As long as I or anyone in my party didn't try to drive in the DC area, it was a good time.
In comic news, I went to my first comic convention as a creator over the weekend. I didn't set the world on fire with my comic, but I did make a few sales and got to hand out postcards to several folks that seemed genuinely interested in the strip. Overall, it was a great experience, and I got to meet some other comic creators in person that I had been conversing with over the past months. Most notably,
Chris Flick, Topher Davila
Lee Cherolis (with whom I shared a table).
And now that I'm a convention veteran (yeah, right), I'm moving on to this weekend for the Fallcon
here in St Paul, Minnesota. I'll be selling more Business Casual mini comics and strips along with sketch cards of both Business Casual and regular comic characters. I don't have any large banner or displays yet to make me stand out from the rest of the crowd, but just look for the tall guy with the Peanuts
shirt on. That will be me.
