these photos were taken at The Projects, an awesome portland comics festival.

photo 3: leif goldberg’s collaboratively made sculpture, with leif and me standing next to it.
there were many other amazing cartoonists there, too many to name, too many to photograph.
i had a great time! thanks to every one who made it happen!!!
lots of people have been telling me they enjoy my comics, and i can’t tell you how much that means to me, it’s basically the fulfillment of my life’s goal.
i really appreciate people taking the time to say something about my comics, whether as a review on a website, or as a post or comment on tumblr, or just telling me in person.
some cartoonists claim that they don’t read reviews or they don’t care about reviews, but i’m the opposite, i want to know what people think of my comics. i want to know if the things i’m trying to express are being felt by people who see my stuff.
i think, inevitably, i’m going to get a bad review where some one hates my comics, and that’s ok, it’s probably a good thing for me to get that perspective, figure out why my comics may be appealing to some people and not to others. not that i want to please everybody, but…
no… actually… i DO want to please everybody!! i want every one to like my comics!!! i know that’s not going to happen, you can’t please everybody, but… i don’t know… maybe i just want everybody to be happy!! it might happen someday!!!!
