So jealous you’re hitting up ECCC, Nicole! You probably already read Octopus Pie (http://octopuspie.com), but definitely check out Meredith Gran (she’ll be tabling with Mike Holmes, another top-notch cartoonist) while you’re there, she’s the greatest in every sense!
My weekend ahead: tonight I’m donating blood, then catching a drink (or eating? Maybe just eating) with a former professor, ~$30. We’re rendezvousing in Manhattan, so if that meetup is short and sweet, I might head back uptown to hang out with another friend, orrrrr bike back to Brooklyn and catch up on sleep. $15 if I go with the friend option.
Saturday during the day I’ll spend in the studio, either drawing a one-off comic or frantically scripting for a webcomic I delusionally think I can launch before mid-May despite having to still build the website / write the damn thing, let alone draw it. At night there’s the benefit for the Dekalb Fire I did some last second art for (come on out, it’s a great lineup! https://www.facebook.com/events/1677786212486042/), then my friend’s brithday party. $40 for beer / probable drunk food.
Sunday I’m catching brunch & catching up with a pal at Syndicated, ~$30 judging by the prices I’m seeing online. Then another $30 to re-up my groceries — I’ll probably spend the rest of the day in the studio, $2 for seltzer.
$145 high end estimate!
