Crafts and Kisses
Thanks to all who came out to the DC Counter Culture Festival this past weekend! It was a mob ~ although everyone was happy to be together, drinking beers and looking at some very cool comics and designs. There were fun cow paintings, groovy t-shirts, hand made and self produced graphic novels. I treated myself to the first installment of Girl Ninja by Rebecca Simms (www.webcomicsnation.com/dcconspiracy/ninja/toc.php). My table neighbors were the creators, writers and stick figure drawers of Full Sanction, in which they wield bats for justice. Rusty and Joe are so slick they presented me with a selection of their editions and a full set of buttons! Thanks guys!

Likewise, you can come out to Craft and Kisses, where there will be many of the same vendors, plus some other great ones. This is a hand crafted only event, so it will be showcasing some major DC area talent.
