nervously come up and say hi or stare awkwardly at your wonderful art, that was me! Some of the super talented and friendly artists I was lucky enough to encounter were paperalligator, phoebewahlprimaryhugheskelley mcmorris, simplykumquat, maxestes, lenapodesta, and more I am surely forgetting! Oh, and the amazingly talented Carson Ellis was kind enough to sign my copy of the third Wildwood book even though I just missed the end of the signing, which truly made my night.
