I'll Be Attending SPX.

I'll be attending the Small Press Expo (SPX) in Bethesda, Maryland and I'll be sharing a table with John Hankiewicz and David King. Outside of the mini comics of mine that have been around for a little while now, the only new stuff I'll be bringing is a 24" square screen-print of the illustrations I drew for Ivan Brunetti's "Anthology of Graphic Fiction" (previously mentioned). The print includes all of the drawings for the book as well as extra ones (a total of 99 drawings) in deep violet ink on a light beige paperstock. Here's some photos of it:

Oh, and there'll be a mini of drawings by me, Ivan Brunetti, John Hankiewicz, and David King that we'll have (it's new) called, "Bethesda is Latin for Stamina." Here's the cover image:

I second that motion :) I can make out most of them from the photos you've posted. Can't go wrong with a grid of heads any day of the week. Have fun!

Bob - thanks man! I s'pose I'll be selling them on my site once I get some mailing tubes and whatnot. Email me if you're interested in gettin' one.

Ed - thanks very much! I've seen your blog as well and it's got some great work on there - my stuff seems basic in comparison.

I caught the book in the store this weekend. Definitely a piece of work. I saw Ivan Brunetti picked up Outstanding Comic at SPX. Some day I hope to be attending these things, but I need to build up a body of work first.

Bob - Trust me, a few mini comics and maybe some extra items (like prints) is all I have when I've done conventions. The experience (and meeting some very cool folks) is the other reason for going.
