Expozine 2010

OK, so it was a pretty fun weekend though i got nailed by the flue after all that.

Fist i want to say thanks to Nadia Moss for the loan of her wheels when i thought i’d left my stove on – it was all good in the end and i was able to grab my forgotten lunch too. Nice ride as well. Wish i’d had the presence of mind in all the chaos to go by her table when i was shooting clips, she was presenting some nice prints. Check out her stuff on flickr and this strange little video she did with Automatic Vaudeville.

As i mentioned in my fist post when I was stuck on the stage I had horrid sales. Managed to move to a great spot on the main floor day 2 and it made a hell of a difference! Easily three times as many copies of Dream Life sold along with several other books I brought. That helped a lot but the slow day one – normally i do better day one and a little less day two – means over all this was not really a very profitable expozine for me – covered my expenses but it could have been better had i gotten there early day one.

That sucked and so did getting sick. Gave me time to edit the video i took though. Sorry for the crappy sound, mostly could not be helped, cheep camera. Will upgrade some time when i have the spare cash.

So i shot a two part tour of event, talked to a lot of people, and below the clips here i’m posting links to as many as i can manage.

and i lost track after that!

Expozine Day 1: First attempt at live blogging – FAIL!

So despite getting up early i was a little late getting to the event and thus lost out on getting a proper spot on the floor. Instead for day one i had a table on the stage with the poster artists. Not such a great spot, out of the main traffic i lost out on a lot of spontaneous buyers, really noticed the difference, a 3rd to a quarter my usual sales. Going to try to get in early for Sunday and grab a new spot on the floor.

A lot of people said sales were slow. Customers were looking a bit glazed over buy the shear mass of the offering, and it seems to be the pattern now ever since it became a two day affair: day one browse; day two buy in a mad dash near the end of the day.

Took some vid i’ll deal with latter, and snapped some shots with my phone quick, here’s a little look at the days events. Tried to post this from my phone while i was there but messed it up somehow so this here is my second try from home the old fashion way.

Come catch me and Jim at Expozine this weekend!

Hey, i’m going to be there

…sell some books, and art i hope – planing to make prints,
{well, in the end I missed all but the last half of day two and only managed to film part of that. Just can’t be in two places at once. Read on to guess why, and look up to see the short Doc I made of Expozine -least got that much done.}

but also penciling WFH gig, ack! time time time. My collaborator on Therefore Repent! Jim Munroe is on a panel with Peggy Burns, Aaron Costain, and Anna Leventhal. The title is “Printed Matter or Printed Doesn’t Matter?” – Moderated by Jeff Miller. Saturday, 3 p.m.
Like to make it but will have to run out from 12 to 3 to attend to some personal business. Sounds interesting, will be there if i can, record it for sequential maybe.

EXPOZINE, November 14 and Sunday, November 15, 2009, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 5035 St-Dominique (Eglise Saint-Enfant Jesus, between St-Joseph and Laurier, near Laurier Metro). [street view links]

See you @ EXPOZINE 2008 | Sat Nov 29 & Sun Nov 30

stock for Expozine 08

So I’m going to be at Expozine, along with much of the alternative comix scene for Montreal and many from all over Canada and the US!

Expozine has evolved into the biggest zine fair in Canada now, it’s been amazing to watch; I’ve attended every year so far.

This year I have lots of books. Not as many copies of Therefore Repent as I’d have liked it looks like, just 10!

Ordered more but unless they show up Friday I think they got held up with thanksgiving in the US.

That kind of sucks because i can probably sell 3 times as many as I have. But what you going to do?

I will have other books though, lots of RevolveR‘s, a few copies of Comic Boot Tattoo, Sea of Red, old jam zines and some other older books i’ve done. Also going to bring a long box of old books from my personal collection, stuff i’d like to start divesting myself off. Also, i had some cool new 1″ pins I had made up too, hear they come out well, going to pick them up tomorrow!

The books are above, bellow is the art from the pins! See you at the show! Drop by and say hi if you read the blogs. :)
