PSA! Making a mini comic? Put your name on it!
This last weekend, as many of you know, was MoCCA Art Fest 2010. It's a lovely event, and a terrific place for up-and-coming comics artists to showcase their work, and for editors like yours truly to discover up-and-coming comics artists! More on this later.
But here's a tip, up-and-comers! Put your name on your mini! If you're feeling crazy, go ahead and put your website and your email address on there, too!
If you don't (forgetfulness? Shyness? Spite?) you run the risk of having someone (like me) pick up a copy with the intention of following up with you later on about, you know, Gainful Employment, only to find when the time comes that they have no idea who made the comic in question, or how to get a hold of the artist.
I should note - this didn't happen to me this year - but it has happened in the pas. And this year I certainly noticed a few mini comics with NO IDENTIFYING CHARACTERISTICS ON THEM. Bad! Bad!
