My impression of SPACE 2013 is actually a series of compliments.

First, there was Bryan (I didn’t catch his last name) from Cincinnati, who told me my current artwork looks a lot better than my stuff from 2006. Generally, I think it’s better, but not wildly better.

Second, I got a couple of good comments on Downs issue 3,  “Teckeli” (with art by Boisterous Brent Bowman). One guy said it was a great update of Lovecraftian themes.

On to compliments from me: One of my new favorite things is Parisel313, who kinda bullied me into paying $1 for an unknown number of one-page gag strips. They’re the kind of middle-school margin-doodle comics I remember from the early days of SPACE, but really witty, and with just that right touch of outsider art. Check out Parisel313.

I read a few of those Saturday night, so I was able to shake his hand Sunday and thank him for making the sale.

But my best went to a guy named Gabriel Dunston of Firelights Media. His wife bought one of mine, so I wandered over to his table to see his stuff. We bonded over our childrens’ love of My Little Pony and, even though he’s an Applejack fan, I picked up one of his children’s books.

It’s called “There’s a Monster in the Bathroom” and my daughter loved it. We read it three times, and we actually acted it out. She ran into the bathroom, pretended to see a scary monster, and I pretended to get it.

So I got to tell Gabriel this in person, and I got to see a grown man do a completely unironic fist-pump. “That made my day,” he said.

Mine, too.
