Roberta Gregory and me.
Just got back from the San Diego Comic Fest, run by the guys who originally ran the San Diego Comicon.
It's a dear little pure-comics show, full of indies and undergrounds where I fit best, one-of-a-kind isolated self-owned that I am.

It's held in the old-style bungalow-and-palms-and pools Town and Country Resort. So many old friends were there, too.
This all started when San Diego State Special Collections wanted to have Roberta Gregory down for a presentation, and to organize their adding her work to her collections, as they already had done with mine. The convention got involved, and it all snowballed - in a good way - from there.

This is going to be mostly a photo essay, with captions. I took some photos, but friends - especially Mary Fleener - sent me so many more.
The resort is done in a cheap-but-pretty Versailles style, mostly white walls, lots of crystal and gold and flowered and blue carpets, loads of pools and a killer whirlpool.
We had a lot of fun with those mirrors!

I was on a couple panels, about women's comics and gender. The usual. Tried to make them both as interesting as possible. I really should be on panels about comics as literature. I'll have to stress that in the future.

The rest of these are Mary's photos - and not all of them. There were a lot. It was hard choosing the best!
