The Harlem Book Fair was Awesome!

posted on July 17th 2010 in Comics & Observations with 2 Comments

Sold some books, made some new friends. This was the most professional affair I’ve ever attended. Very organized, well placed and an audience of eager readers who came for nothing but good reading material. No incidents, good food, excellent music, and the friendliest set of literary giants you ever saw. I’m glad I came.


Above is a snapshot of my side of the table. I did several original sketches while sitting there. I wasn’t successful selling them, but I can make them available to you as digital downloads. They’re sketches of Rat Pack in various poses wearing softball (or workout) attire. I stuck one in with Nikki from OA, and another with Michele and Kareem. These will be posted shortly. I haven’t decided how yet, but I’d like to sell the originals. Stay tuned for a post on it!
