I deleted my last entry. Nothing wrong with it, intrinsically. But with the Carnival of Children's Literature coming up, and the possibility of a new reader, or two, I didn't want to take a chance. I'll share my most embarrassing book buying experience at another time.
Looking forward to the weekend. I'm planning to attend STAPLE!, The Independent Media Expo. In laymen terms, it a convention for cartoonist, zines, and self-published literature. I've been feeling my way around this new cartoon platform, so I'm looking forward to meeting, and networking with others who are doing exactly what I want to do. Except, ultimately, I don't want to be self published. I wanna make some money.
Ah, and another cool thing. Remember, I joked about presenting myself as a caucasion cartoonist. I was joking. Sorta. Anyway, Keith Knight, a very successful African American cartoonist, will be speaking at the convention. Not that I want to be a cartoonist, per se. Well, yes I do. How come I have a problem identifying with that word? Anyway, regardless, I'm inspired.
By the way, I learned of the convention through Paige Braddock, who I blogged about a few weeks ago (but can't find the post in order to link to).
Now, back to my paintings.
