Alternative Press Expo 2012 Recap

 

I’m terrible at writing and keeping people updated on what I’m doing.  If you didn’t know, I tabled at Alternative Press Expo (APE) with Jon Williams and Clave Fourie to represent Guilded Castle.  (That website is going to get updated soon and actually give information on the quarterly comic that Chris has been working on.)

I had some cubed critters and t-shirts for sale.  It went well for me and I was able to buy a few things while I was there.  If I were a richer person, I would have come home with a lot more.

Now it’s picture time!

Albino bun found a home this weekend

My swag

As you can see, my haul wasn’t very large, but I like what I got.  Left to right: postcards from Brendan Monroe, cat shirt from Double Parlour, The Gifted from Creative Mind Energy, Adventure Time print by Perry Dixon Maple from Gallery Nucleus, long art print from Brendan Monroe, Pug shirt from Jenny Park, “I See All” zine from Deth P Sun and a little burger plush from Jakc Designs.

I also managed to get bunny sketches from both Deth P Sun and Brendan Monroe.  Both are artists that I have followed and admired for years and I was definitely starstruck.  Ugh, I only ended up really talking to Brendan and I’m pretty sure I was awkward and sounded kind of dumb.  I’m like Troy from Community, “You can’t disappoint a picture!”

Overall this con falls on the plus side.  It’s been a few years since I tabled and I had forgotten how much fun it can be.  Looking forward to next year!
