Dope as me

Good morning, internet. This past weekend I was at SPX in Bethesda, MD and let me tell you, if you make comics, or love comics, or are in the north east, you should NOT be missing this show! It is hands down the best Comic Show in the States right now. Tons of superstars, tons of friends, tons of traffic and tons of love. I was staying with Josh Kramer and my tablemates, Pat Barrett and Dakota McFadzean. Part of all the love is the ability to spend so much time with those who I don't get to see 9 months out of the year.

Besides the friends, the sales were out of control at this show! I completely sold out of EVERYTHING I brought. Good for two reasons, 1) Time to start bringing more books and 2) people like what I'm doing.

Some highlights include this awesome pen that only worked in a blue light and the whole sketchbook of "invisible" sketches.

Here's what I drew:

This kid was SOO mad at his dad for dragging him around this comic show, it was cracking me up.

Friends galore!!!

And last, but not least, the charming Nomi Kane nominated me for an award, and here it is!!!

Thanks for tuning in! Especially you, new readers. Keep checking back as I conclude Fugue Part 3, and then there will be ordering information asap!


  1. Hey Beth! This is pretty random, but I took a picture of you and Dakota at SPX and I wanted to send it to you (and for some reason couldn't seem to find your email?!) - anyway, let me know if you'd like a copy of the picture :) I'd also like to post it on my blog as "Cool People I Saw at SPX" haha.
