Stumptown Comics Fest!

Finally had a chance to post my thoughts on Stumptown Comics Fest, which I had the honor of tabling at this past weekend.  It was my first time tabling at the event and I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone who came out and showed their support for the artists!  Here are some shots from the show:

My table

The Floor

The guys: From left to right, Reid Psaltis, Josh Shalek, Kenan Rubenstein, & Neil Brideau (apologies to Kenan for catching him mid coffee gulp).  Couldn’t ask for better table-mates than these guys!

A huge thanks to Reid & Neil in particular for helping me get into the show in the first place.  If you haven’t seen the amazing work of these fellows, check it out:

Reid Psaltis… Cryptozoology.  Need I say more?

Neil Brideau… Neil’s handcrafted books have a charm all their own

Kenan Rubenstein… Kenan’s calender comic ‘Tick’ blew my mind.  He is also the foldy comics guy!

Josh Shalek… very few can master the 3-5 panel comic strip.  Josh is one of those few.

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS…

Expansion #2 by Malachi Ward & Matt Sheean.  Dare I say these gents are creating the finest sci-fi comics currently available?

Amy in the Spring of 1990 by Colin Ryono & Mike Skrzynski.  A touching, yet funny little tale of a crush that came & went.  Buy it

FOOD...Oh yes, there was also food to be eaten in Portland:

Again, thanks to all who came out and showed support!  It was a warm welcome to the Pacific Northwest and Stumptown Fest!
