The hat looks like Brent Anderson. Maybe the shades as well. FANTASTIC PARTY!!!!!!Great to talk with all those old friends.
I think you called it Tom. That's a Skrbbl skimmer
Nope, that's Dok's hat. I don't know about the shades.Thanks again Tom for the great time and opening your house to all of us! I think everyone had a wonderful time!
I, too, had a marvelous time. And time flew! Before I knew it it was past the witching hour, but really, I could have stayed longer!! Thanks, Tom!!
Thanks to everybody for coming and making it a successful event! It was great to see old friends, make new friends, and see people having a good time.What did everyone pick up at the Con? I set a personal best by NOT spending much money at all; only $45.00 total.I bought Lewis Trondheim's "A.L.I.E.E.E.N." published by First Second. It's a wordless comic that reminds me of Jim Woodring's "Frank".I also got a book of 30 postcards by Jordan Crane, author of "The Clouds Above", a great little kid's comic book in children's book format that I highly recommend.And I got 3 books of vintage (1932)Oz comic stories by Walt Sprouse from Eric Shanower's booth.
On Sunday I obtained two of Tony DeZuniga's art prints for my nephews in Scotland ... a bodaciousbarbarian and a well appointed pirate! And clad in such a way that two teen aged boys will get a lot out of them without sounding parental alarms!! ... I'll scan and post tomorrow.
Tommy, thanks so much for hosting--a great, great time. And great seeing everybody. I posted a "thank you" below this one.'Til next year!!

Therefore, I would like to create an email mailing list to share with all TAG members. So, if you want to be included on this, please send me your address (don't post it here as it will attract spam like anything). My email address is posted on my website, so I'm not shy with my address... firstname.lastname@example.org. Once I have a critical mass of email addresses, I will send out a message so it will be available to all members. Sound good?
A great idea Rick. I'll be sending you both my work and home e-mail. Now, if we can just figure out how to get ahold of all those people who fail to read that last post of yours!!!
For those of you who took pictures at the Con a suggestion, why don't you post them on your Facebook account or something... :)
Ok Rick. I posted 46 shots of the Con into my facebook account.http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30076568&id=1257293005#pid=30076557
