Trip to New Orleans in Pictures / by Hope A

Every year, I return to New Orleans with the pretense of tabling at the Bookfair but really i want to visit my friends. This year, the bookfair was moved to December so I signed up for NOCAZ--the New Orleans Comic and Zine Fest, on November 14th. 

Visits are always a whirlwind but I carried a small notebook with me and sketched bits about my visit while it was happening.

We'll come back to this. Nevermind that I can't draw pelicans.

And then there are about 3 pages I haven't inked, just pencil sketches I did on the flight home. Crystal and I had an adventure but all you need to know that is that sometimes it is good to have a night where you say YES to everything, even if that means you are uptown at midnight trying to find your way home. We found it. The way was back along the river, of course.
