SPX Fun Time
Late on my post this week. I had a 13 hour drive home on Monday complicated by a flat tire so it took me a little longer to get back. But it was worth it over all. Sold out of all the copies of Super Spy at the show and sold some original art and other little things. It was the first time I have been to SPX and it really was one of the better conventions of the year. Nice "intimate" (small) space with tons of hand-made and silkscreened comics. Really fun to see it all. I also took the train up to D.C. and visited the Spy Museum. All photography was prohibited which seemed like more of a challenge then a rule, it being the Spy Museum and all, so I snuck a few super-secret photos -- one of James Bond's Aston Martin (that actually worked -- the guns popped out and shot, etc.) and a real Enigma Machine (also pictured). Also finished another commission this week -- a re-working of Amazing Fantasy #15 with the first appearance of Spider-Man.
