I’m back from Comic-Con International and, given enough naps, I think I might even recover!
While there, I kept a little sketch journal of some of the wackier things I encountered, or, more factually, my reactions to them.
It was a crazy time – wonderful to see so many friends, colleagues, and readers, crazy costumes and bizarre set pieces. This was my first time going as a Professional Cartoonist ™ and that added a certain amount of angst – am I annoying everybody? Will I sell enough? Am I talking to the right people? How many boxes did I ship? But it was exciting to be at a point in my professional development where those were meaningful considerations. Six years ago, I was looking up to people like me! Pretty cool.
Thank you to everybody who spoke to me, bought a book, or gave a friendly smile at the convention. It’s a pleasure. Even if my feet still hurt two days out.
