I’m back at the studio here in Copenhagen after a few hectic weeks in New York. I enjoyed bicycling here with music in my headphones, wind on my face and the smell of the wet streets. This is home. Won’t be here long though as I am heading to France for another comics festival this coming weekend. I was at Saint Malo last year too and really enjoyed it, although I didn’t make a single French connection.
I’m still reeling from the impression of NYCC, sending follow up emails and going through the images and sound I recorded there. A lot of material for upcoming podcasts for Comics for Beginners.
As for the images, here is a small selection, mostly free of touristy family shots.
|Rock’n’comix event in Brooklyn bar The Fifth Estate. Later I read in Chinese accent with Chris Miskiewicz on stage. Fun night, boring picture.|
|At the con. Fatigue set in after about five minutes. SOOOO many people. So many costumes. So much STUFF. Noisy as Hell.|
|At the High Line. Excellent park built on the old train line, by Danish architects!|
|I did a podcast interview with Spiderman artist Tom Lyle, here seen signing original artwork for a fan.|
|The often-shirtless Dean Haspiel with the not-so-often-shirtless Rich Johnston of Bleeding Cool.|
|Williamsburg in the sun. We were so lucky with the weather, hardly an overcast day.|
|Manhattan seen from Williamsburg. We took the ferry over a few times, a nice little ride.|
|I always forget how many PEOPLE are on the streets of New York. All the time.|
|Dean Haspiel sketching on napkins at the Marvel party which we crashed after hours.|
|Reilly Brown and Jason Little at Hypothetical Island studios in Brooklyn, looking at my book, STILETTO.|
