First off – my camera is still broken. Which is a bummer. So for those of you that already follow my Instagram, these images will be redundant. SARRY. For those of you who don’t, YAAAAY, fresh new images!
This year’s Stumptown Comics Fest was my first ever as an exhibitor, and I debuted my (first ever) little comic, Adult Babysitting Vol. 1.
Our table (shared with Working Class Press member Jim Hill) was pretty modest, with an absence of professional banners and a meager selection (on my part) – just my small comic and an array of art prints for sale. Our banner was just a stretch of canvas on which I hand painted ZOMBIES + BOOZE.
But certainly one of the biggest draws to our table, besides ZOMBIES + BOOZE, was my classy fake bar setup. Like a tractor beam, we ensnared several folks wandering past with the promise of libations, only to be bitterly tricked by our ruse. The myriad of reactions was one of the more entertaining aspects of our weekend.
“Wait…..is this REAL???”
“Apple juice? This is bullshit.”
“I don’t like this.”
“Very funny, guys.”
“This is by far my favorite table.”
“I am going to get SO wasted.”
I mostly stuck to our table, and talked with all of people that came by. And I met lots of friendly comic folk, including Roman Muradov, Chuck Groenink, Emi Lennox, Zack Soto, and Jason Fischer. Despite STCF’s status as a smaller, underground, and indie crowd, the selection was nonetheless overwhelming.
There’s an inevitable amount of downtime, and as my Instagram friendz already know, I spent much of that time drawing. I’ll be posting the rest of my doodles over the next week.
And I sold a ton of prints! What I didn’t sell will be available in my Etsy shop later this week. Also, if you didn’t get your copy of Adult Babysitting already, buy one now. Like, right now. Go ahead. It’s five whole dollars. That’s it.
To all the awesome people I met with over the weekend – a big THANKS! It was a blast.
