Posting this as I’m in the middle of packing up for the 4-1/2-hour drive to Long Beach Comic Con, where–as you should know by now–I’ll be camped out at Artist Alley table K5 all weekend. Prepping for conventions that involve travel is always a bit more cumbersome than I remember. You have to bring EVERYTHING possible, because there’s no “oops, I forgot this thing, I’ll just swing by my house/office/storage bunker to pick it up.”

And, as usual, I’m running sort-of behind schedule, but only in my head. There’s not really a rush. The show starts Saturday morning, and I can’t load-in until today at 4 p.m., so really, it’s all good. But I still have a lot to do. Like take a shower. So … off I go!
