Anyway, APE! The Alternative Press Expo, folks! It returns once again this weekend in splendid San Francisco, CA and I will be there once again shlepping my wares and meeting the peeps and buying all kinds of fantastic stuff I can't find anywhere else! And that's what makes it such a great convention...NO, not the "me being there part"...well, yes I guess that does make it a great convention, sure. But I meant the "can't find anywhere else" part! Most of the artists and writers there are selling books and original art that doesn't make it to the mainstream venues like Barnes and Noble or Borders (especially not Borders anymore, eh? sad) or even most comic book specialty shops. And alot of this stuff is absolutely kick ass! Like my stuff, of course. And I'm one of the fortunate few "Indy Artists" who's had some commercial success.
So, if you've got the time or the inclination to seek out and discover some truly inspired and original reads I strongly recommend your visiting the APE! I will be there both days, Oct 1 and 2 and my lovely daughter, Stella, will be set up again with me selling her own sketches on Sunday the 2nd. Saturday she has a big Soccer game. I'm the head coach. One of us had to be there and represent.
Hope to see you there!
