Jetlagged Cardboard Funnies

I carried a Sharpie, a White-Out pen, and boxes full of comics to France and all I came back with were these lousy drawings. And a flattened penny stamped with an embossed Arc De Triomphe*.
I made these while I was supposed to be working at the Buenaventura Press table at the Angoulême Comics Festival last week. They pertain to utilitarian concerns of our first few days abroad - travel, lodging, etc. - but I promise we did do some culturally worthwhile activites while in France, too. I just ran out of White-Out.
Some photographs of me and my pals standing in front of things (or at least beer-stained ticket stubs) will probably surface once I unpack and I'll scan them in too.
*The Arc de Triomphe was pretty awesome but it would've been even better had they went with this.

hey, Dan -

I vaguely remember you working on these when I idled by your table a couple of times. It really amazed me how you could work standing up, sitting down, all the while talking to visitors.

The books you sold me are very heart-warming and surprising - they provide more food for thought than I normally expect to get from a comic.

I hope we didn't make too much noise that evening at the restaurant. I guess we can get pretty rowdy.
