I was quite surprised to receive an inquiry from my friends at Dark Horse Comics a couple of weeks ago about carving a set of rubber stamps for this year's Stumptown Comics Fest. Writer and artist Peter Bagge was in attendance as guest of honor and the Exclusive Stumptown Comics Fest Passports were based on his comic, Reset.
|It began with a transfers of Peter's illustrations.|
|Each stamp is carefully carved and mounted to wood.|

It was a lot of fun for me to walk around and collect my passport stamps and see them in action. It was an overall FUN experience and look forward to attending more comics events with my family in the future.
I am pleased to say I DID get to meet Mr. Bagge, although briefly. He's a very busy and popular man! I've read Reset #1 and look forward to the next issue (there are four.) This comic is not for the kiddos... that's okay, there are PLENTY more out there for them!
I did manage to make a little something for myself (and one for Kari, too!) Reset brooches made from shrink film. The color is pencil and outline is ink. Each image was hand drawn onto plastic then shrunk, sealed, and assembled.
GRANNY SQUARE STATUS UPDATE:
I'm now up to 28 colorful squares!
