#GrandComicsFestival :-D



     Another fest completed! This year was definitely a fun year for the Grand Comics Festival. Since its the second year, I felt like more people knew about it. When we were handing out promotional postcards during the MoCCA Arts Festival, a lot of people were telling us that they’ve heard of it about it last year. As opposed to last year, when people were just nodding their heads when we told them about the event and they’ve never heard of before.











     And since it was 1-day only Festival, there was less to no slow times. Last year there was a noticeable chunk of slow hours were the room almost had no one looking around. This year it was nice and steady. So, I hope this second year builds upon the Festival’s great reputation. The 3rd year should be even better!
     Grand Comics offers a balanced containable, group of established artists (like David Sandlin, Sara Varon, Dean Haspiel, Jess Ruliffson, etc) and up & comers (like myself and fellow squids- Alexandra Beguez and Estrella Vega). Pat Dorian, the creator and owner of the Festival, definitely gets brownie points for creating a nice, intimate, and FREE fest to go to.
     I had a new zine debuting, The Qirin Hunter and is inspired more to do more for the following year!
