More Mini Show Shots
Pretty soon, people started to get the hang of it.
Look at that crowd! We ended up pretty packed. I guess this town is just hungry for MiniComics. That, or cheap white wine. Either way, I was delighted. I don't really like to go to openings, myself. There's just a bunch of people between me and the art I'm trying to look at. And they're cliqueier than a high school cafeteria. But this was fun. People were laughing, and whenever someone would connect with a particular book, they'd drag all their friends over to read it.
A lot of people said that they'd be coming back to read all the minis at their leisure. I hope they do. The show is open forever (March 26th), so there should be plenty of time.
Big, big thanks to everyone who helped put this show together: MCA students, faculty, and administration; Tom Spurgeon; Tom Gauld; BB&PPINC; and, of course, the generous artists who provided the minis. I hope this show has made a few more people aware of the great work you're doing for so little recognition or recompense.
Now, to get back to drawing.
