Boskone: Friday

I got to Boskone a little later than I expected, but I got here. I was too late to register or get to any panels so I mostly spent the evening lounging in bar. It's tough, I know. Rick Berry had an advanced copy of his Sparrow book -- very hot. (Sparrow is a series of wee art books produced by Ashley Wood.) I did get to the art reception but, as always, receptions are great places for schmoozing, not for seeing the show.

Perhaps I will have more to report after today....Or it will simply be a series of photos and shout-outs, more likely.

Somewhere between NYC and Boston. As much as I love spending this weekend with friend and colleagues each year, I should admit that I look forward to the train ride up to Boston almost as much as the convention. There aren't many times that I can do absolutely nothing but stare out the window. For hours.

I got my copy of Sparrow on Wed. at the comic is great! In fact the Sparrow series have been consistently good little art books.

I love the Sparrow books. I recently picked up the Kent Williams one which was great. I'll have to grab this one as well. Thanks for the heads up.

Very sorry I wasn't there this year. You made the con for me last time!

We missed you, Lou! Honestly, I can't imagine why you would pick Mexico and China over Boston in February.

I like a game which you need use flyff penya to play. If you want to be online to play this game, I can borrow flyff moneyto you. When you have flyff gold, and than you can go on this game. Of cause, when you are first to play, you can buy flyff penya. If you have enough cheap penya, you will be able to different games.

Once I played 2moons, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have [url=]2moons dil[/url]. He gave me some [url=]2moons gold[/url], he said that I could [url=]buy 2moons dil[/url], but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some [url=]2moon dil[/url], if I did not continue to play it, I can sell [url=]cheap 2moons gold[/url] to anyone who want.
