MIT, Show Opening, Boston Bazaar photos

Thursday at MIT's Craft Fair, Dan and I find that our table is in a strange corner of Stata Center. While it makes for an interesting photo, foot traffic was low.

We decide to make a sign that clearly states what we are selling.

Friday, we get a better location, near the center of Stata.

We also take advantage of the blackboard behind the table.

Below: more Stata shots. It was a bit slow overall, but it was interesting to interact with students and people at MIT.

It was fun when people came over, eyes wide and arms open in curiosity, asking out loud -- "Comics?" I had a good time chatting with people.

At one point, two gentlemen looked interested in the comics and came over, while continuing to discuss something. They kept up the discussion (about the recent climatology scandal?) at the table for about 10 minutes, before they finally started browsing.

I had a new minicomic for this shows, a series of cartoons about things I'd seen at MIT. One of the gentlemen was very critical of this minicomic, particularly on one cartoon about how I watched students electrocuting a pickle in the hallway. I had to explain it was a real experiment that Prof. Bulovic occasionally performed for people, which his grad students were replicating.

I also sold the minicomic to researchers who had come into Boston for the Materials Research Society meeting that week, as well as to many other people.

Saturday -- reception for Inbound 4's debut and the corresponding art show at Atomic Bean Cafe!

Sunday --- Boston Bazaar Bizarre!
