Went to this cool event called Semi-Permanent in Auckland over 20th and 21st August

In short it was one hundred times better than Armageddon (pop culture event in New Zealand) and I LOVE my comics.

There were a lot of great speakers who knew the industry really well and others who are just starting to pick up momentum and still get a quite a few rejections.

It's usually more of a Design sort of event but there were some really cool people that I had never heard of until now (In my defence I'm taking a "Fine Arts" degree so sort of living under a rock).

Here are the names of the speakers (I don't know why I'm writing this, only one or two people will probably stumble here by accident)

Speakers at Semi–Permanent Auckland 2010:

Karen Walker, STORM THORGERSON, Chris Allen (Light Surgeons), JESSICA HISCHE, Katrin Sonnleitner, Otis Frizzell, NICOLAS ROOPE (POKE), GARETH O'BRIEN (BUCK), Sarah Estens (Frost Design), Andrew Gordon (Pixar), DUNCAN SPEAKMAN, ADRIAN SHAUGHNESSY

The ones in upper case where the speakers who I enjoyed the most, or gave a real insight into the industry. It was a really great event and anyone who has a chance to go... just go. If you are still a student it's like one hundred and fifty cash New Zealand for two days of cramped awesomeness.

Did I also mention a sweet goody bag with about fifty to seventy bucks of swag?

On a separate note I'm trying to train myself to make more enjoyment pieces instead of goofing off or working on assignments.

So hopefully I'll change this sad excuse of a page into something a little less sh*t .

Piece Out kiddies

(yes that was intentional)
