San Diego Comic Con 2010 – Wrap!

Filed under: Announcements,Conventions — M Kitchen @ 4:40 pm

Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.

Well San Diego Comic Con 2010 is a wrap.  A good time was had by all (except the poor chap who got stabbed in the eye with a pen).  Now, though it’s time to snap back to reality, the energy gained from this con is going to keep me comic-charged for some time to come.  Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming photos and videos as the week progresses.

The photo above is from the last hour of the last day.  Clockwise from top:  Jesse Labbé of Amity Ink, Blair Kitchen of Possum Press, Anthony Coffey of Amity Ink, and Mike Kitchen of Ultraist Studios.

Swing by our booth to say “hi” at table K05 in the Small Press section.

Hope to see you there!

Seth Godin quote:

Self marketing might be the most important kind

What story do you tell yourself about yourself?

I know that marketers tell stories. We tell them to clients, prospects, bosses, suppliers, partners and voters. If the stories resonate and spread and seduce, then we succeed.

But what about the story you tell yourself?

Do you have an elevator pitch that reminds you that you’re a struggling fraud, certain to be caught and destined to fail? Are you marketing a perspective and an attitude of generosity? When you talk to yourself, what do you say? Is anyone listening?

You’ve learned through experience that frequency works. That minds can be changed. That powerful stories have impact.

I guess, then, the challenge is to use those very same tools on yourself.” *
