Bonnie is at my house for couple of weeks. I must confess... I don't like her very much. She stares at me when I'm eating. Lay down right behind my chair when I'm working on the computer so I can't push my chair back. The feeding, giving her water, and the long walks... as if I need one more things to do. To get her back... I did a color sketch of her. There! That'll teach her a lesson. Hmph.

Olympia Festival sketch part 2

Here's the last sketch from the show.

When things were really slow at the festival, I got up and walk around. When I got back, this guy was by my table reading Betsy Mae Bite. It was perfectly normal... I encourage folks to flip through my books. But this guy took his time and read every single page. Didn't even say "hi" or anything... just stood there and read. Well, since he's there, I got out my sketchbook and drew him.... and no, he didn't notice. After he read BMB, he grab the Atomic Lead and read that one too... all 74 pages! After that, he went to another table and did the same thing.

The moral of this story... be polite. Or someone might write what you did on their blog. :)

During down time at the Olympia Comics Festival, I took out my sketch book and drew people at the show. Fun!

Olympia Comics Festival report

Here are some pictures I took at the festival. The building is The Vault, a dance club that they opened up the windows and let some sunlight in. You can see the stage on the right where they had live music and interviews. The artists tables are on the dance floor section. It was really nice to see some many indie artists. Michel Gagne was there and I spend a few minutes chatting with him. Other feature artist include Jeffery Brown and Jim Woodring. Actually, that's Jim on the stage in the photo doing his interview.

So that was the front area and my table is in the back...which is on the left of this picture. The pool table was pushed back to allow for more tables for the cartoonists. Can you spot my table in the picture below? It's over in the right corner.... right next to the men's bathroom. I got lots of traffic right by my table... too bad they all have other things in mind then to look at my books. ;)

Here's a closer look at my table. I didn't take too many things down there. Just my Betsy Mae Bite, Atomic Lead #3, and my pins. Because I was at the very back... I couldn't hear any of the interviews. That was okay... I just talk to the other folks around me.

Overall, it was a good experience. I always want to be in the festival and glad I could finally do it this year. The Vault is a really good building and fit the artists, crowd, and atmosphere. I really hope this will turn into a big indie comic show for the pacific northwest.

Check back later in the week for sketches I did at the festival.
