Make Way for the Cartoonists
Just in case, here’s the B. Kliban cartoon a little larger:
Oh my golly, MoCCA Fest was fun and exhausting. There were so many people and so many things to see. It was my first time tabling and I learned almost immediately that due to the sheer amount of stuff to look at, if some stranger stops and REALLY LOOKS at your work it is because they are either 1) randomly curious 2) somebody told them to. By Sunday I was literally in front of the table yelling things to get people’s attention. Sometimes it worked! It helped that my table mates were my audience–I mainly did things to crack them up. This was easy. By Sunday we were all punchy as hell from sheer exhaustion.
Some of you stopped by and I *loved* meeting you! THANK YOU for coming by! DOUBLE thanks for buying my wares. You helped me make my table fee back!
Mainly, the weekend just felt like a delicious cartoonist smorgasbord. I met amazing people, completely nerded out on cartoon and comics stuff (who else who reference a B. Kliban comic??), and felt overwhelmed with gratitude that I have at last (in this funny late stage) discovered my community. I have always wanted to find you, comics people. You are a funny, nerdy, lumpy group and it is an honor and a privilege to be among you!
