back from SXSWi

I'm back in town after South by Southwest Interactive. What a fantastic time! Holler out to all the excellent people I met there, and a special buttercreme-topped holler out to the ones who bought minicomics from me. Thanks!

It's a funny thing - I recently finished rereading the fantastic Buddhism intro book The Beginner's Guide to Walking the Buddha's Eightfold Path. The author described how introducing mindfulness into everyday situations helps you to become more aware and notice details, such as the grain of the wood when you focus on polishing the kitchen table. In a similar vein, attending SXSWi has helped me to appreciate my own job even more. Nothing makes you take a step back and really think about what you do for a living than having to describe it in quick terms to total strangers.
