SPX was an interesting show. I didn’t sell that many books, but I did sell more artwork than I did books. I forget if I came out of it at a loss, or if I broke even, but I did meet some great people.
I reprinted The Early Years Collected as Sketches and Streams. The cover featured a new illustration of a redesigned Super Duper Ham. This cover was modified to create a standing banner.
Standing banner are effective, but they are also a nuisance to have behind you during the show. There is limited space between you and the table behind you. Putting the standing banner in this space can make it difficult to slide your chair back to get up. I learned to scooch to the side before getting up.
