the Show- Stumptown Comic Fest '09

The Stumptown Comic Fest of ‘09 has come and gone.
Some of the feel of the show had changed from last year as I was able to get away from the table and see what was being sold this time around.
I was impressed by how many new books had that finished and cleaned up look than years previously my only regret was that I didn’t have the third color comic ready and the manga sized Pandora’s Garage collection up and running.
I think that both would have made it fun for anyone to ready and buy.
But the show was fun and ended on a high note for me so I didn’t walk away with that empty feeling inside “no body likes my work” attitude.
But I did sell some of the books which made me happy and I got to see old friends from last year and that was cool.
Also many new ideas are flying around my head as new way of selling books by using a UPC code and the ISBN number for selling to bigger book sellers.
That was a huge boon for me as was the information about the photoshop and screens option and multiply option for color my scratchboard projects. That alone opened up a lot of things for me. I can’t wait to try them out when I get to the scratchboard again.
And then there are a few more shows coming up that I have to be ready for as well so I am expanding the playing field for the work which is what I need to do.
Here is to keeping my fingers crossed.

Today is Stumptown

Today is a new day and I have been lax on getting things posted here but it has been a rough and tumble kind of couple of months but today is where things pay off for themselves today. Today is the day for the Stumptown show here in Portland!
Our mayor Sam Adams has officially made this “Comic Book Month” here in town so we creators are all very excited !
There will be new posting here from the show as time goes for the next couple of days.
Yea, us!
