TCAF Report  
So here's my TCAF report. I'll keep it short because I'm sure you've read plenty already.


I'm the one with jetlaggg. There's Jason and Colleen. (photo stolen from Jordyn Bochon)

I had an ace time and met many many lovely people. A lot of those people I already knew on the internet, but now I know them in real life. Shall I list all those people? No, it'd be never ending; like the shout-outs on an early nineties hip-hop album. It was all the cool kids, they're all brilliant and I don't need to provide links to their work because you read it already. But let me tell you this, they are all excellent fun people. Who'd have thought it eh?

Here's a thing though. TCAF felt very special; exciting. I'm thinking this was not only because of all the superb artists, but because Christopher Butcher and his army of helpers who clearly worked their socks off to make sure it was great.

One week after the event and I'm still very enthused about making comics. I'm always enthused about making comics, but you know, now even more so. I hope they'll have me back next year.

I sold out all my copies of The Accidental Salad that I took, but don't worry I've just received some more and I'll be selling them at The Alt Press Fair on the 28th. And they should be in the shops real soon too.

Sorry, that's not much a report more a declaration of fun times. If you'd like links to all the people I met, photo's of the great haul of comics I picked up and all that, just shout.

It was great meeting you, Joe! That's awesome that you sold out of books. Hopefully we'll meet at another event sometime.

Yeah, I need to save for air fares to these far off lands.

I very much enjoyed your Finnegan comic, I read it on the plane home.

It was great to meet you! We spoke briefly about Livejournal. I give our conversation a gold star for Least Awkward Interaction With An Artist I Admire. Loved Accidental Salad--making all of my friends read it!
