Smudge Photos and Twitter Sketches

The Smudge Expo was a lovely event! It had a great indie vibe and was very family friendly -two things that don't always go hand-in-hand. Northern VA comics and art aficionados should definitely plan to attend next year. Anna accompanied me this time and it made me wonder how I ever do these events without her. We met some wonderful people, sold a lot of books and even met some adorable Zita cosplayers. Here are a few more pictures from the event (all pictures are copyright and credited to Bruce Guthrie, who's website is here):

And now Twitter. It's not for everybody, I know, but I've been posting a lot of casual sketches and things there and, if you like that kind of thing, it might be worth a follow. Here's some of the recent stuff, including an aged-up Zita and a couple sketches of The Dying Gaul which is currently on display in the National Gallery:

Who is the girl with the fox tail supposed to be? I think she's cute.

Kathy, Yay! I'm glad you Zeroed in on the fox-tailed girl. That's Molly. She's a new character I'm working with.

She's very clever.

Hi there, all the sketches are really very cool and cute. I loved the very last one most with the text"after coffee". That sketch actually made me laugh loud. I would like to see more pictures like this.

From a personal usage standpoint, this is quite convenient, as it lets you keep track of people, links, comments and other tweet material that you found valuable and want to keep track of.
