I'm gonna add to the mountain of "I'm so tired from the Con!" blog posts out there only to say that it's true. That thing goes by way too fast and takes so much out of you in exchange for INSPIRATION. My experience this year was fantastic, I met a buncha new artists and hugged my old friends, plus I got to experience things on the other side of the tables via the Girls Drawin' Girls booth. We did very well from what I can gather (THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME BY TO SAY HI AND/OR BOUGHT MY BOOKS!!!) and I will do my best to get back to everyone who sent kind emails, shared their cards/books with me and whatnot. Just be patient, I'm still in LA for a few more days to visit friends and test the employment waters here ;)

I will post pics of my sketchbook bounty when I return to San Fran. It is rather large this year - one of the perks of having a book of your own to trade around at the Con ;) Otherwise, highlights of this trip included drawing in other people's sketchbooks (lotsa boobs and PugFish for all!), being pounded by the surf on Venice Beach, regaining my "driving in LA" confidence (wasn't so much fun the last time I tried that 10 years ago) and nearly being clipped by a hot-dogging crop duster on the 5.

I'll check in again soon!

Hey, Steph, I watched the interview, I wanted to hear the your voice for some time now... I surprised it sounded so light, like little Chinese bells actually. ahahah, I imagine it to be lower judging from your brave independent, resolute personality (as I see it of course).

You sounded extremely nice, pleasing, sweet and you looked the same. You look beautiful, bright and interesting, and vivid and your smile is one of the most pleasant I saw. I liked every time when you smiled... So writing impression as it is, just truth.
So ever changing, open and shy and extremely sweet, warm. I'm really glad you are like this.

I got your e-mail... thank you for writing it, very thoughtful of you and I can' wait to have them of course. It will be a honor to have your art in my house.
