I went to Small Press Expo this weekend and it was a blast. Getting there was tough though as I didn’t get a lot of sleep, had to run to catch the train and felt like shit most of the weekend. That aside, I met a lot of old friends, made some new ones and attended some interesting seminars. Author of Scott Pilgrim, Bryan Lee O’Malley, was there as well. He did book-signings at SF-bokhandeln. Sadly enough, he wasn’t very talkative when it was my turn but I can easily understand why: the line was looooong. Well, I got a nifty looking cat drawn in my copy of Lost at Sea so I’m not complaining.
This years Comic Royale is loaded with good comics. One of the high points of this years SPX, though, was the fact that the 2nd years from Gävle university’s Comics and Storytelling-program won the people’s price with their beautiful anthology “7 Oktober”. Congratulations, you guys.
We wandered around a whole lot in Stockholm and it took its toll on me. The only thing keeping me from being a total wreck right now is lots and lots of sleep. I’ve been kind of lazy these last few days as well but I’ve still managed to draw a little. With my left hand.
I’ve also started working on the storyboards for the second chapter of my webcomic. If I have any luck I might be able to start drawing the actual pages again soon. Anyway, the final japanese exam is coming up in a week or so and I might not have time to work on any pictures for a while. We’ll just see. If I know myself at all, I’ll probably get something done anyway.
