This smart, friendly guy bought a set of my postcards. He was my first big purchase of the day, and it really thrilled me to meet someone was interested not only in purchasing my work, but also in discussing the inspiration and influences behind this series. I don’t know if the visitors to art, book, and ‘zine fests realize how much it meets to us (independent artists and writers) when they really connect with our work. This guy is a perfect example. His sincere interest and good questions–not all of which I could answer–kept me thinking about the artist’s responsibility to the subject for several days after we met.
