I got back from Anaheim yesterday and as exhausted as I am, I have to say it was a pretty amazing conference.
Now, I admit, I’m biased. I’m staff, so the show is naturally close to my heart. But there was a really good vibe at the conference. The people I spoke with were engaged and active and inspired and INSPIRING. I tell you, there’s nothing like hanging with 15,000 librarians to warm your soul.
GraphiCon - our mini-comic-com inside of Annual - was pretty fabulous. We had tons of programming and a really great Artist Alley with some great creators (Faith Erin Hicks, Dave Roman, Raina Talgemeir, Gene Yang, The Houghton Brothers, and so many more!) Derek Kim shot this fabulous video:
And my “Not the Droids Your Looking For” game came off without a hitch! I was very excited, because I wasn’t quite sure it was going to work well. But people seemed to like the game and had fun with the little encounters. I’ll be writing up a how-to when I get the chance. And its leading me to thinking about what kind of game I should plan for Midwinter.
Oh, yeah… and I ran into George R. R. Martin on the Exhibits floor….
