T'was a lovely afternoon for Komikon. I arrived there around 2pm and got to see my friends. My brothers and "half-brothers" were also there. I finally got my hands on Wina's literary work and was surprised that my name was at the acknowledgements section.
|So touched OMG|
It was also refreshing to see friends in a non-Taft location. When I got tired, I'd retreat literally behind Wina's booth and read a couple of her short stories. My personal favorite has to be the one entitled "Catching Up." It was fun just hanging around Wina's booth coz she and Trizha are both just cheerful and crazy people. Plus, I was pretty sure people gravitated to their stall because they were just so into it: talking to everyone, doing weird, random, funny things when crowds occasionally subside, and also endorsing their fellow Komikon artists' works beside them. Gotta love the energy.
|Feel the luuurve.|
|I did enjoy it. :D|
So I ended up staying at Komikon longer than I originally planned. Oh, and Wina's stuff were practically sold out by the end of the event. So congratulations again, Wina-belles, Trizha-belles, for your successful Komikon debut!

Komikon gave me a few ideas with what to do with my art cards for Wina's book launch so muhahaha.
