For Comic Con 2009, I am purchasing either a small press booth, or sharing a table with a friend. I’ve been wanting to be an exhibitor at the Con for 4 years now, and I think it’s time that I actually do something about it. I have so much art and ideas that I want people to take home with them. I want little gubba characters lurking in every corner of every household. I want evil cockroaches and sneaky suspicious vegetables hiding in peoples cabinets, and strangely cute bugs with spectacles sitting on your bookshelf. Yes, I want to become a part of your world, even if it is only an infinitesimal part of it. One year really is not that much time to produce the amount of stuff you need to see to the crowds at CC, but at least I will try. The closer I get to it, the better I feel about it. Really, when are you supposed to make a big step for your art? I’ve already had a self-promoted solo show, I’ve made and distributed a comic, I’ve been in group shows, but what of it? I still work 40+ hour weeks at a stressful (albeit rewarding, yes) day job, and I still only put a few hours of my week into my art. My friend Storm called me while he was walking the isles at this years ‘Artists Alley’, and asked, “Where’s the Gubba booth?”. Good question, I think it’s time that I actually answer it with something tangible.
