I just finished this little flyer for a workshop I’m running next weekend – New Dimension Comics in my area is having Not-At-Con Day on July 23rd and I’m running a workshop on how to make your own minicomics. If you can’t make it to this one, no worries – I’m planning on running another workshop in Wheeling, WV sometime after August 4th (dates are still TBA).
I’ve been doing a lot of flyer-type work lately outside of comics. I wonder if it’s a sign…
Last weekend I went to Savannah for Swarm Con and had a blast!
I had never been to Savannah before, so my pal Chloe showed me around the town. She’s currently going to the Savannah College of Art and Design, so I got to see a few of their buildings. Mostly we explored along the boardwalk and the shops that were there.
It reminded me a bit of Marietta, OH since almost all the historic roads are brick or stone. The standout difference?
THE STUPIDLY STEEP HISTORIC STEPS.
Dotted here and there throughout the alleyways are steps that are almost two feet high each step. It’s ri-goddamn-diculous.
At least the architecture was cool to look at. The boardwalk had buildings and stores stacked on top of each other like layer cakes.
We also had dinner at the River House. Their shrimp and grits are absolutely delicious and pairs really well with sweet tea.
Oh man I hadn’t had genuine southern sweet tea in such a long time. It was SO refreshing to get it in Savannah.
I also tried oysters, which was…interesting.
The first one made me go, “Ugh, what a weird texture. But let me try another one just to see if it gets better.”
The second one? “AUGH, too much vinegar on that one! Let me try one more.”
The third one? “…Yeah, oysters are not for me.”
I was expecting something rubbery, and…it was, but it was also slimy and cold. Not my thing. But I gave it a try!
Next time I’ll actually talk about Swarm Con, because there are some commissions I did while I was there that I think you would enjoy seeing.
