…but now, let us take a break from the fight scene above and talk about the Alternative Press Expo.

For those of you who weren’t in San Francisco last weekend (or weren’t at the Bluegrass festival/Castro St. fair thingamajig), the A.P.E. convention was a lot of fun.  Everyone got a huge kick out of seeing the one-and-only Angus Oblong (who was kind enough to come on his own birthday) and purchase some of his official Oblongs merchandise…and to those who weren’t too starstruck by the crazy clown to buy my own merchandise, a big “thank you” as well!

Sadly, I didn’t have as much time to explore the convention grounds as I had wished, but I was able to meet up with a few fellow comic artists/travelers from previous cons, including Crow (Nicky510), Joenis (L.A.W.L.S.), Becky Hawkins (French Toast Comix) and the always-lovable Bridgett Spicer (Squid Row).  Of final note, I got to meet Jason Little, creator of the fine graphic novel Motel Art Improvement Service.

That’s all for now, but tune in next week for the news about my next convention appearance!
