Expozine was today! It's a zine, comics, and small press fair held annually here in Montreal. This year it was in a huge church basement, and it was packed all day. I was there for most of the afternoon. I didn't have a table, but brought along some zines to hand out and trade, which is a great way to meet people and end up with a pile of stuff. People have tables full of all sorts of handmade things like zines, comics, buttons, clothes, posters, cds, crafts, and so on.
You can see in the first photo how crowded it was. The second photo is the pile of zines I made to trade... "The 8-bit Art Book" is a series of pixel-art drawings of famous artworks. The third photo shows some of the resulting loot, including stuff by fellow Newfoundlanders Jerry Ropson, Stephen Guy, and Logan Macdonald. I had a great time!
