Front Page Of Comic Fest

One of my photos from this year’s Comic Fest made it to the front page of its website. Not the most exciting shot, showing the post-Fest take-down of Draco Tavern, but I guess it’s kind of apropos since it was thanking everyone for another successful event. For me, this was even better than last year’s. …

Meeting On Adams

Attended the third to the last Comic Fest meeting, this time at ArtLab Studios in the Normal Heights suburb of San Diego, before the Fest begins on October 4th. The meeting was at times instructive and informative, but dragging and snippy at others. It was also a very hot day and there was no air …

June Meeting For Comic Fest 2013

Attended the latest Comic Fest 2013 planning meeting at the Town and Country Resort with department heads and various other volunteers such as myself, although at this meeting I was finally designated as the Fest’s official photographer, so I guess that kind of makes me head of the photo department.

Comic Fest Meeting, The Third

Went to pick up my friend, Archie, and then drove over to Tierrasanta for our next Comic Fest meeting of organizers and volunteers. At fifteen people, it was the most individuals that have attended yet. Of course two of them lived in the house we met at. It was also probably the most productive, as …

Second Meeting For Comic Fest

After leaving the Safari Park I drove straight to Twiggs on Adams Avenue for my second meeting of organizers/volunteers of the upcoming first ever Comic Fest in October here in San Diego. This time my drink of choice was a fine 16 oz. bottle of Wisconsin’s own Sprecher‘s fire-brewed gourmet Cream Soda made with Wisconsin …
