Had an absolutely amazing time at spx (my first time going to a comic convention!) and bought a thousand lovely books and met a thousand lovely people.
I walked in and was just immediately blown away by the number of people and the amount of beautiful art all around me. Everyone was so nice and the atmosphere was incredibly inspiring and supportive. Most of the books shown here I got signed and people even did little sketches in them! I also went to talks (including one by the Lynda Barry!) and went to PROM!
Some highlights include meeting:
Emily Carroll (!!!!! beautiful and amazing work! So creepy and inspiring!!!)
@albinwonderland (As lovely, nice, and kickass in person as she is on Youtube)
evandahm (I didn’t even know he would be there and I just turned around and saw him and nearly passed out (I hope I didn’t make too large of a fool of myself))
@jessfink (Amazing work and SO NICE! got a pair of skeleton earrings from her and have been wearing them for the last 3 days)
I also found lots of new artists to follow! I had an amazing time and feel so inspired and hope to be back again next year!
Thank you, spx!
