i don't have photos, but other people do: the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival
this past weekend was completely amazing on any number of levels; the work available (i got so much good stuff...), the artists in attendance (yeah, you heard right Matt Groening was there too, but only to SHOP.), the programming (very little of which i was able to check out, manning my table and all...), but mostly just the sheer NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO CAME TO CHECK THE THING OUT. the place was PACKED, almost all day.
which would be great in any case, but La Mano did as well as i've ever done at a convention; this makes me very happy.
and, Kim Deitch came and sat at the table for a while, signed some books and such. it's always great to see him, and he seemed to like the folio. he's just a great guy, that Kim Deitch.
so, some lucky folks got their first crack at the folio, and the rest of you will as well, REAL SOON. i'm working on the site update/ paypal buttons etc.
but, overall-- BCGF was a hell of a show. Desert Island and Picturebox did a great job putting it together.
also-- an interview
with me went up at the Fantagraphics site, which is worth reading i guess but even moreso because it features the best/ most terrifying photograph i've ever had taken of me (scroll to the bottom).
and it's all a ramp-up for the big Fantagraphics Bookstore's 4th anniversary bash this saturday
, where i'll be making a lot of noise to cover up the fact that my throat is completely blown from yelling for 9 hours in Brooklyn.
oh wait: i joined facebook. i haven't figured out how to use it yet, though.
