Had an awesome time at the Brooklyn Zine Fest this weekend! (fyi "zines" are like little self-published magazines). It was a super artsy vibe and everyone was so friendly! So much creativity out there! These tiny zines have lots of personal stories in them, some are just pictures of Brooklyn, some are compilations of many writers and artists. There was one lady making balloon animals, hence the balloon dog :) I also saw lots of books with graffiti art and poetry. I keep trying to understand poetry but it's not really my thing. I kind of went overboard on getting cool stuff, but I rarely do that anymore because I hardly have time to look around conventions when I'm exhibiting at them. Also, these purchases are tax deductible for me as a cartoonist in this field! It's easier to keep track and get receipts by paying with a credit card, which luckily most vendors had the Square Reader. Hopefully I'll get into this fest next year!
