This Brooklyn-based show was arranged by filmmaker and cartoonist Pat Dorian, who was kind enough to include me. Unfortunately, I went into it with the products and strategies that had served me well at shows like Comic Con. I didn’t understand the difference in what people were selling and how they sold it in this calmer, more intimate venue. I did terribly at this show, but in retrospect, it was a great learning experience.

And everyone I got to hang out with for the day was absolutely lovely.
