Off the road again.
InterventionCon was a blast. We had a great time doing this show (for the seventh year in a row!) and were proud to be counted among their stellar guests. This show remains intimate and friendly, but it’s expanding into something bigger. Garth and I believed in InterventionCon all those years ago when it started, and we still believe in it today. Thanks for having us back! We hope to return year after year after year.
And that’s it for our 2016 convention tour! Garth and I did lots of shows this year. We returned to old stomping grounds and blazed new trails. We made lots of new friends and reconnected with many familiar faces. Some folks appeared who we hadn’t seen in many years, while others were sorely missed. We drove long roads and endured long flights, but it was all worth it. This is as close to “life on the road” that we webcomickers will achieve, and a big part of me romanticizes that concept.
A surprising thing happened to me on the Sunday of InterventionCon. The show was over and we were packing up. Garth and I were preparing to hit the road. We were saying our goodbyes and I realized I wasn’t going to see him in person again until next year. We stay in regular contact, of course, but our communication is over the internet or phone. This past Spring and Summer have been full of conventions, so I’ve seen Garth in person often. The realization that I wasn’t going to see my partner and pal again for months struck me. I dare say it made me genuinely sad. We live in a miraculously connected time, and I can easily reach out and contact Garth at any time for (mostly) any reason… but nothing beats hanging out with your friends in real time.
It’s been a good year on the road. Thank you, all of you, for making this year so memorable. We’ll see you all again when we hit the road again in 2017.
