Thanks Laura! You’re super kind.
And I so appreciate you making a point of catching up with me, even as I was running around like a crazy person! And thanks for the books!
Imma keep doing my best to make SPX as warm and safe and happy a place for cartoonists as a mama panda’s pouch (… is for baby pandas).
CARTOONISTS DO NOT ENTER THE ACTUAL MAMA PANDA POUCH.
INSTEAD, COME TO SPX.
GET IN THE (METAPHORICAL) POUCH.
WE WILL LOVE ON YOU.
I had a really good time at SPX this year! I was really impressed by the quality of the work I saw on tables, and the show was so dense and busy I didn’t get to see about a quarter of the floor.
Special thanks to my tablemate Rebekka for being the best, to Pablo and Iasmin for letting me hop in their caravan, to everyone who told me they appreciate my work, and congrats to Cathy on the well-deserved Ignatz!
Extra special thanks to Michael for his hard work on the SPX organization and outreach! Making artists feel wanted and valued is so important and he’s devoted to it.
The weekend was so busy I only took these two pictures:
