Gearing up for MECAF


But I won’t be empty-handed! Remember all those photos I showed you yesterday or so? Of all those pages ready to be folded and stapled and trimmed? They went *into the trash* as I found a rather embarrassing typo while folding my 20th or so copy. SIGH. After agonizing on Twitter about this a little bit, I fixed the error, tightened up some other issues that had been bothering me while I was there, and then reprinted everything. It was costly and could have been prevented if I’d proofed my work more carefully. Sigh.

So here was my new stack of comics to be folded, stapled, and trimmed. The only thing to make this whole thing a little less annoying was a nice glass of Riesling.

A little later that evening – the finished product and the “comic confetti” aftermath.

This was a great learning experience to be sure. Definitely going to put a lot of what I learned to good use with my next project. In the meantime, I’m heading up to MECAF to meet fantastic artists and see what works they’re sharing with the world. I’ll have my minicomics with me to share with folks who are interested, so if you’d like one, just ask! I will look like a less tired version of this:
Would you like to read my minicomic called “Silent Fluency”? I know my face doesn’t fill you with enthusiasm, but I’m not usually this tired… 🙂

See you at MECAF!
