10 pictures I found of me at SPX since 1998 or 1999.

Chris Pitzer did this the other day - posted 10 random photos from SPX over the years. I believe this SPX is the 20 year anniversary, so it’s a bummer to miss it. Congratulations to the people who founded the show and who continue to run it, for it’s amazing success and longevity.

Remember how in 2003 or 2004 there was all that talk about how maybe SPX was going to become obsolete because MoCCA was the Big East Coast Show now? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Memories of the Small Press Expo. Have fun this weekend, nerds!

Top to bottom: 

1996—my first SPX. It was the month before the first issue of Box Office Poison would come out from Antarctic Press, so this was my last show as a mini-comics-only creator. I used to wear a tie to shows but have gradually gotten more and more slovenlier. 

1999—Tony Consiglio looms large in my legend. You’ll notice I have no tie, but am still tucking my shirt in. 

2000—Will Eisner was polite enough to pretend to remember that Tony and I were his students at SVA, yet blunt enough to tell Tony that he had a face like back of a chicken. I’m normally an anti-social jerk at shows but this year I did make friends with my neighbor—a young upstart named Mike Dawson. 

2006—Tony and I chill with “Gruntin’” Andy Runton after the Ignatz Awards.

Diary Comic 9/6/14 Getting my daughter to ride her bike

The part where I lose my temper isn’t the part that ever goes up on Facebook.

I can’t remember who it was (maybe Dylan Horrocks?), but I saw someone saying that one way to look at Social Media is to think of your Facebook/Twitter presence as like your role-playing game avatar - a character you have created and maintain in the campaign of living a life online. My Facebook character is an easy going fun-loving Dad. He does very well in the ongoing quest to get lots of likes and comments.

Sad news, which is that I won’t be at this year’s Small Press Expo (SPX) in Bethesda Maryland, which is a big shame because it looks like it’s going to be an amazing convention, as it has been pretty much every year for many years.

I do believe my publisher, Secret Acres, will be at the show, and presumably they’ll have copies of Troop 142 and Angie Bongiolatti there for purchase.

However, if you were thinking of getting a signed and sketched in copy of my comics from me, and those plans are now ruined by the fact that I won’t be there, do not fret.

Copies of my books are available to purchase from me through the Internet, and I will waive the shipping costs to try and make the convention experience slightly more real. The part where we have pleasant banter while I sketch is tougher to pull off, but to make up for that, I’ll put in a free Sofia the First ‘zine in with the first batch of books I send out, until I run out of ‘zines.

Signed/sketched Angie Bongiolatti’s will be cover price: $20.00

Temporal Darkness Presents #2

A split-zine, by myself and my friend Gaz Gretsky. Published March, 1995

The cover was drawn by Gaz, who went by the name GAR back then. You can see his signature written in blood on the floor.

Sketchbook comic about Kajieme Powell’s death at the hands of police on August 19th.

The video that the bystander recorded and the police released, apparently to exonerate themselves, is very disturbing. The police go to their guns too easily too often. There is less than half a minute between the time they pull up and the moment where this man is shot to death. Again, they must have had some knowledge of his potentially disturbed mental state - the reason the police were called seems to be because the man was acting strange. Other police arrive on the scene within a minute.

For more thoughts on this incident I thought this link was good.
