In 2013 MoCCA got classy! I like how the Society of Illustrators managed it. If they can get the table cost down I will be a loyal fan.
I had a good time with my table mates Jesse Reklaw, Ariel Bordeaux, Rick Altergott, and Ellen Lindner. I wouldn’t mind if the attendance had been higher–a lot of familiar face were absent. In general, the energy felt a little low. Still, a good time was had.
Of course, it was the LOVF debut. I was able to hand deliver copies to a few Kickstarter backers who were attending. It was also the debut of some new crafts! Those turned out to be the big sellers, especially the light switch covers.
Folks, if you’ve written off MoCCA, give it another chance in 2014! We missed you this year.
