We had a really great time at Autoptic: meeting people, both at our booth and on the convention floor. The Aria building was a gorgeous location, the Autoptic crew and staff were friendly and helpful, and everybody, attendees and guests alike, was energetic and so happy to be there. That energy was definitely contagious!
The Gang's all here!

Between all of us at Light Grey we got to talk to a number of the artists tabling there. I was happy to see past teachers Barbara Schulz, Zak Sally, Vincent Stall, and James O'Brien.
We also met so many talented people that I've only known through their work. I'm certainly forgetting people (I don't mean to!), but Bart King, Sam Sharpe, Kevin Cannon, JP Coovert, the folks at Sparkplug Books, and Grimalkin Press are few of the people who gave us convention advice and talked with us about the ups and downs of book production.

And of course we're always happy to see artists who have exhibited with us, including Brad McGinty, Anna Bongiovanni, Erik Krenz, and Evan Palmer.

Fun was had by all!
One of these days (soon!) I'll post my Autoptic purchases–my highly cherished collection of zines, books and prints. And thank you and congratulations, Autoptic crew, for putting on such a great event! Here's to many more!
