Wearable Art

Hooray, they’re finally here!

Greek God Cuffs!


I just posted my Greek God wrist cuffs (the ones I blathered on and on about here and here) in my Etsy store. For now there’s only pictures of the Dionysus, Hermes, and Aphrodite ones, but ones featuring Apollo, Artemis, and Athena will soon be up too. Hooray!

Earlier this year I was SUPER proud to be part of the Baltimore Time Travel Anthology, a book organized and put together by the awesome Melody Often, and on sale at Atomic Books. I’ve just posted my comic from it on my site – check it out!

SPX was the first comic convention I ever went to. It was 2002, I was fresh out of college, just gotten a job, and wanted to see what was up. I dragged my friend Lauren and we wandered around aimlessly, too scared to really talk to people and, like most amateurs, blew all our money within the first half hour. It was amazing and intimidating and I had no idea what to think of everything. (I believe I might’ve awkwardly cornered Derek Kirk Kim into a conversation since I was obsessed with his webcomic Same Difference at the time) I also met and braved talking to a lovely cartoonist by the name of Tim Fish, who still puts up with my questions and tables with me to this day.

There were three rooms, a bar downstairs, and comics everywhere. I was in love.

One year later, I managed to snag a table. All I had were signs, a binder showing my webcomic, Gods & Undergrads, and free postcards and stickers. That was the whole shebang, my comics debut.

The picture is small and crappy because this was EONS ago

Oh and look there's Matt Hollis, Ed Siemienkowicz, and Joel Carroll in there too!

After that fateful 2003 SPX, I started gradually going to MoCCA, and then APE, here and there tagging on a Stumptown and a Staple, with just a dash of TCAF. But it all started with SPX.

SPX has changed a lot over the years – new venue, no more pie for dinner after the show, just nonstop excited creators and their WORK. Year after year – more creators, doing more stuff. It’s survived the move and managed to retain such a cozy, hang-out-by-the-bar atmosphere far better than any other show. I’ve only had to miss a couple SPXes over the years, and I was sad that this year was one of them – but still, it was so great to even just show up yesterday for an hour, meander around, blow all my money in the first fifteen minutes, and brave talking to some lovely cartoonists. All these amazing creators and publishers and fans and table bitches I’ve met over the years – now I consider to be my old friends.

Here’s to SPX!

I love the rain, but now I’m wishing I used the title of this entry for something about wine tasting…

I know everyone else complains about the rain but I love it. I love it even though yesterday it rained so hard my skirt butt was wet, making me look like i had a crazy accident in my pants. The blocking out of the sun is one of my favorite parts. Rain gives people a reason to wear galoshes, and bundle up under umbrellas, and gives you a good excuse for not looking at people when you walk down the street. It discourages crazy people from wandering down my street in the middle of the night, drunk, yelling at themselves. It makes everyone hustle home to get cozy.

What I don’t love is the cascading flooding we’re having. It’s like the Rain Gods saved up all their relationship issues for a year and just came over to sob on our couch about it. Quit the drama, already!

Anyhoo … click here for the next Bonnie installment!
