And heres my final blog post from ZICS 2016, this time focuses on people I networked with:
1. Tom Caffrey
I met Tom at ZICS in 2013 where he drew me a Robocop which I thanked him for again as it was awesome. Tom was one of the first people I saw when I walked into ZICS this year and one of the first things he said was he follows me on Facebook and likes my Koala Drawing T-Shirt. That was such a big boost to start the day, to have compliments from a highly talented comic book artist 🙂 His ‘Armoured Science Kung-Fu Cats’ need to be checked out!
2. Brad from Groovy Gravy
Brad had the perfect sales pitch “Can I interest you in some fine locally produced comic books” to every one who walked by and soon got their interest in Groovy Gravy as it is a collective of local artists. Brad sat next to me ad had a good chuckle through the day – he even lent me a spare table cloth (mental note that I need on for next time!) that he brought along – thanks Brad. I did a comic swap with Brad so can’t wait to read my copy of Groovy Gravy!
3. AshCan Comics
Ashcan were on the other side to me, also selling their comic compilations of local artists. Great to chat to and learn from their wealth of experience as they are highly regarded within Brisbane. Privilege to sit next to.
