02:35 pm - APE and beyond
So, APE was last weekend. Thanks to those of you that stopped by and said hello (there were a lot of you!) and additional thanks to those of you that picked up a little something (there were not as many of you :D)

It was an exciting APE this year, with the convention being held in the other side of the concourse, the whole thing just looked and felt bigger. And it was. There were about 50 additional tables for exhibitors set up, and one of the upper wings was used only for meetings / panels / seating, so there was just a whole lot more space for everything.

Unfortunately, that didn't transfer over to more customers for us. It was a pretty slow weekend, and was the first time at ANY convention, where Miriam and I both left the table to go do some exploring. Of course, during that time, Mikey (from poseurink) sold a t shirt and a book for us. He makes an excellent booth babe.

It was kind of a mixed bag from what I hear at the convention. Some people were having excellent sales, others were more like us. It's still a super fun convention though, and the exhibitors there are all pretty amazing.

I took a whole whack of pictures, which is nice, because I usually forget about my camera, and it just sits in my bag the whole time. Feel free to have a look at my flickr set, featured here.

Mixed into the convention time, was the Last Gasp mixer on Friday night, Mikey's birthday party @ Patxi's on Saturday night, the Cartoon Art Museum on Saturday night (which had 4 of miriam's pieces up as part of the Graphic Details show), and the APE Aftermath party @ Isotope on Saturday night. On top of all that, we spent time with a bunch of awesome people, and I know I'm going to forget some so I should probably not list them :P

oh man, I know I'm forgetting some more, and they're gonna be pissed. I apologize in advance. We've already determined that I have the memory of a goldfish.

So, remember those names, if you ever happen to be at a convention where one or more of those people are at, you can know that they have our huge seal of approval. They're great people and super talented , each and every one of them.

Well, that was the last big show of the year. Still to come is Bellingham Comic Convention and the last Vancouver Comic Con of the year. Then a couple of months off, and we start all over again.

Thanks again everyone!
Mike
