A few weeks ago my good friend, and fellow cartoonist, Chris Kawagiwa and I headed up to Santa Barbara to meet up with fellow threadless artists for an event they have yearly called Winebocon. It was a lovely weekend full of fun wine drinking with awesome folks, Threadless staff, and designers, and featured an open bar where we got the chance to try some high end whiskey for free. Overall, it was amazing.
Threadless has been such an important community throughout my illustration career, and is generally an inspiring community both on the corporate and personal level. Check out the amazing websites and portfolios of the awesome folks we got to meet/chat with (and their threadless usernames):
Priscilla Wilson aka valorandvellum (organized the entire Winebocon event!)
Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures of the event, but fun was definitely had, and I’ll be sure to attend next year. Afterward, on the way back from Santa Barbara, Chris and I stopped by LA Zine Fest, where I picked up loads of mini comics and zines, and I’ll be blogging about in a few hours on my webcomic site Quarterlystories.com.
