I'll be pretty busy this weekend for a guy who isn't supposed to be at APE!

I'm not an official guest at APE.
I'm not setting up at my own table.
But I'll be dropping in just the same.

I'll be doing signing and drawing type stuff for CBLDF here and there.
Catch me if you can!

Offers for Crazy Trade Ins and What-The-Big-Fish-Said are open for business!
Unique TFAW Cards will be available for a donation at CBLDF table.

Here are the things I know I'm scheduled to do.

Saturday 10/16 at 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm
CAM Alternative Press Expo Party: Storytime! and Graphic Details
Cartoon Art Museum
655 Mission StreetSan Francisco, CA, 94105

It's a great show and it's not going to be up a whole lot longer
and it's well worth the Look-See!

Also....I have a workshop on Sunday 10/17 at 12 pm (aka noon aka midday)
It's called: Marketing a Comic That's Easier to Read Than to Describe.

Presenting a comic as peculiar as Beanworld to the public is hard today;
imagine how difficult it was more than a quarter of a century ago.

I'll share my story of the strategy I deployed to get myself discovered,
find a publisher, and how I found the right message to break through the clutter
of the mid-80s comic book marketplace.

I'll have some artifacts on hand that hardly anyone has has seen before
plus a whole bunch of stuff quite unseen for a long, long time.

Hear how the lessons I learned then have sustained Beanworld's public image to this very day!

Also on Sunday 10/17 4:45-5:30
CBLDF: The Fight For Intellectual Freedom

More than 50 years after Frederic Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent, comics and other media still come under the attack of censors.
Charles Brownstein, executive director of the CBLDF, is joined by cartoonist Keith Knight
and other panelists for a discussion of current trends in comics censorship and how we all can get involved in protecting intellectual freedom

I'm one of the others!
