I’m pretty hilariously shy at events like APE.
Can I talk with people if they approach my table? Easily and often.
Can I approach someone else’s table and talk to them, even if it’s just to say “wow, your work is amazing”? Not if my life depended on it.
I know, I have no idea either.
(Sidenote: The artist I was geeking out over is the infamous Kate Beaton. Her comics are indeed awesome and if you have not read them you really should.)
